“I went viral and got a million views on YouTube in 2007 for a silly rap about the Nintendo Wii I made out of boredom before that was a common thing and before there were ads on YouTube.

My video was featured on the front page of YT, on Attack of the Show, and at Nintendo’s E3 press conference that year, and was one of the first hundred videos available on the iPhone (since iOS didn’t support Flash video at the time)…and while I felt like the coolest kid in town and at my campus for a period, I made exactly $0 for it.”

STARTED RUNNING IN THE FIFTIES

“I can mimic the sounds of birds, get all the birds in the area to start singing, and even get them to seek out the “big bird.” It’s kinda funny to have them completely change their song when they realize I am not a bird, almost screeching at me sometimes (especially catbirds)

edit: I really need to do a video. Hopefully, it will be a nice day soon and before Reddit explodes itself.”

BLIND BUT HAVE MUSCLE MEMORY

“I’m a legally blind person, so I have a residual vision. I can still walk around my apartment and find my stuff when there’s a power outage using muscle memory.

Edit: I had no idea it would blow up like this! I love the curious ones!”

EDITING SHORT FILM

“I have always wanted to be a biologist ever since I can remember. All my friends wanted to be footballers, astronauts, or YouTubers, and eventually had to give up / change their dreams to something more realistic.

I have only one exam left to get my bachelor’s degree in Biology this month, and I’ll start a Master’s degree in Biotech in September!”

“My youtube account is blessed. I have not received an ad in over a decade, and I do not pay for premiums. I don’t use ad blockers, and I’ve tested it by adding my account to my friends t.v’s and other devices. They get ads on their account, but I do not.

PERFECT CREDIT SCORE

“I’m CURED (not just remission) of what could be considered the most ‘aggressive’ type cancer known to man (most aggressive is not to be confused with most deadly). Either way, I’m still alive, bishes!”

GRADUATION

“Despite my parents not believing that I’d finish high school, I graduated high school, got my associates at my local community college, and am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree. I’m a first gen Latina in a male-dominated field, but I got here without my parent’s help and without them believing in me. I did it for myself, and I’m proud of myself.

Edit: I didn’t expect this amount of kindness from anyone, so thank you all very, very much for your kind and motivational words. And oh man, thanks so much for the awards!”
