A Work In Progress

By Connor Franta

Connor Franta's YouTube life...

First Connor was just a young boy from Minnesota, who loved cameras. His obsession started young. Videos to pictures he loved it all. Connor started posting videos to YouTube in 2010. He was still in college. Not knowing that 5,000,000 (yes five million) subscribers would come from it. 5,000,000 subscibers waiting to watch his next video every week. After graduating college he moved to Los Angeles. Soon after moving to LA he started getting recongnized. He says "I just started getting recongnized, i had to wrap my head around this new normal, it just felt weird." Later in 2013 he joined a collaberation group named O2L (Our2econdLife). It was a group of boys ( Rickey Dillon,Sam Pottorf, Jc Caylen, Trevor Moran, Kian Lawley and Connor Franta) they posted videos every day with an alteranting squedual. Soon after they would hit it big to, going to live shows and meet and greets. in early 2014 Connor came out as gay, and in early 2015 Connor resigned and in a few months O2L would break up. Connor still made his own videos and had his O2L fanbase and his own.
