Hey Debria Love!! So excited to be chatting with you!! What led you to start posting on YouTube?
Hello TMI thank you so much for having me. I started YouTube because I felt like I was an undiscovered star and I thought I would help out the tv producers by making a YouTube so they could find me. I was 12 at the time then quit and picked back up when I started college. Now I have my own personal YouTube Debrialove and a very successful one with my little sister called Sister Sister.
What can people find on your channel?
People can find healing, laughter, and truth all on my channel.
Are there any YouTubers that you look up to right now?
I love Messy Mondays with IamZoie since I am a journalist graduate I relate. I also love love Aaliyah Jay she’s so real and beautiful.
Have you ever been starstruck by anyone you’ve met so far in the youtube world?
The only YouTube star I’ve seen is myself when I look in the mirror lol. I can’t wait to meet Aaliyah Jay tho.
What goals have you set out for yourself in your career and in your personal life?
How long do you have for me to share my life plan and how I’m going to take over the entertainment industry? Nah Im playing … I want to fulfill the purpose of why I was created and I was created to create meaningful social and spiritually conscious content for all my platforms. I want to give the world a little bit of Debria Love.
What would you say has been your biggest accomplishment in your career so far?
My biggest accomplishment is finding my purpose at an early age and walking in that. When I first learned to trust my talents I was 9 performing my church plays which lead to poetry at 12 and then I was a Christain rapper at 13 till now a Youtuber and micro- Influencer. When I said yes to the calling that God put on my life I said yes to a full life and that is what I am proud of the most.
Overall, how has this whole YouTube career experience been for you? You have also created a huge social media presence for yourself. Why do you think social media is so important for artists today?
Youtube has been wonderful and it really teaches you discipline. Since you have to keep up on content it challenges you to get creative and think outside box for video ideas. Also be consistent. Social media is the new business card everybody needs one now.
How do you want your relationship to be with your fans? Do you have any advice for any of your supporters who are going through a hard time right now?
I want to be their wise and cool big sister they go to for advice or a good laugh, to tell you the truth, and to remind you of your magic. My advice for any fan going through a hard time right with the pandemic and seeing police brutality on our timelines is to pray. Tap into your faith because we need something and someone bigger then us to help us through this time. All prayer is is talking to the creator and be real when you speak to him and it will be real when he speaks into your life.
What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans?
Instagram all day every day 28/10.
What is your favorite social media platform? and Why?
Instagram is my favorite because it’s my most active platform but twitter is a close second. Twitter is like your dad’s side of the family fun, carefree, wild and instagram is like your mom’s side of the family you have to be well put together and presentable when you come on there.
Does your fan base have a name?
Not yet I tried out the name lovebugs but I thought it was cheesy.
What was the craziest fan encounter you have had?
I haven’t had one yet… but when I do trust me ill do a video on it.
Do you plan on venturing into acting or singing?
Of course I want to get into acting. Acting was my first introduction into the arts. Ive been practicing on my Disney pilot since I was 9. “Im Debria and you’re watching Disney channel” music to my ears. But I can’t sing to save my life.
Do you have any projects in the works you can tell us about?
I am working on a poetry album and re-branding of my YouTube DebriaLove
If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it — metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions — what would it say and why? (If helpful, it can be someone else’s quote: Are there any quotes you think of often or live your life by?)
It would be big picture of me smiling because when you see someone smile you smile.
What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?
Asmr videos I love them so much! Is that weird?
What is your current go-to song?
Flo Milli’s song 19 its a banger and a confidence booster.
When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do?
I pray because its powerful and it gives me a sense of peace after. Let go of worry. I believed the Bible when it said your burden shall be light so every time its heavy I know something is not right.
Do you have any last things you want to tell your fans?
I love y’all but most importantly do you love you?
Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions!!
Thanks so much for having me.
