This blog post is brought to you by your SpongeBob meme of the day. Stay tuned for more spongealicious memes.
Although I already completed my Document of Learning in the form of a library post as well as stated I would only be doing my eminent posts in the form of video, I felt it would be beneficial to post my speech here for feedback. Feel free to comment any kind of feedback so I can finish up my speech and get practicing!
The Idea: I, Tyler, just hit 10 million subscribers on YouTube and am making a video to thank my supporters. In this video I want to emphasize the importance of this community (#TeamInternet) in getting me to where I am today. I also want to prove to them that they can go places from where they are right now and create positive change in the world.
Hey everyone! My name is Tyler Oakley and today we hit a pretty big milestone. If you follow me on Twitter (which you should by the way – @tyleroakley), you’re probably already aware but… we just hit TEN MILLION SUBSCRIBERS. That’s right, this community right here on YouTube has grown to be a family of ten million people and I want you to know that I am incredibly thankful for every single one of you.
WE have done this together because WE have been through it all. We created. Created a book, a documentary, a podcast, a tour. We raised. Raised awareness and money for the causes we care about such as the Trevor Project. We reached. Reached goals both in your life and my life, in numbers like the 10 million today, but also in our personal achievements. Whether you have been watching since my very first video, or this is the first video of mine you have seen, WE, Team Internet, are what has made this possible.
If you went back in time and told seven year old poor, fat, closeted Tyler that in twenty years he would be standing in front of a camera talking to 10 million people across the world, he would just laugh. And yet, here I am today. That’s why I want you to know that whatever struggles you are going through, you can overcome. Dysfunctional family, eating disorder, not being accepted for being LGBT, or something else, WE can all grow and go places from there.
This all starts by making a difference. Whether it be as small as taking care of yourself and bringing a smile to someone’s face or as big as advocating for a cause you care about. No matter who you are and what you do, all of us can positively affect this world.
Anyways, those were my words of wisdom for today. I want to thank you, my people, again for helping me hit 10 million subscribers here on YouTube. If you liked this video you can give it a thumbs up and make sure to subscribe if you aren’t already. Also, leave a comment down below telling me how you plan to grow, make a change, and be your own eminent person. Okay, that’s all! Bye friends!!
