So i guess some of you might be familiar with the name Tyler oakley, the guy who has garnered an amazing media presence on youtube. He began vlogging in college at Michigan State University, and that vlog has turned into a media empire with 7 million subscribers.
In a session with business insider he said “At the end of the day, I still very much feel like just a Michigan boy that gets to live this crazy life and dream,”
Oakley made his name through his weekly YouTube videos, which feature everything from interviews with former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton , videos answering viewer questions, and a series called“Chosen Family: Stories of Queer Resilience.” His most-watched video to-date is “The Photobooth Challenge”featuring Miranda Sings, which has more than 13 million views.
For those very familiar with him and his videos you should know that he teamed up with McDonalds, which happens to also be where he got his first job, and in 2018 during his“Going Home”
He wakes up every day by 7:00 in the morning, he’s single so he lives alone. After waking up he hits the gym after which he gets back and it youtube videos all the way. One thing oakley loves so much is his “alone time” he ususally keeps time for himself to just think and reflect on life. When asked if there is anything he cant live without, Oakley says “alone time.” And after living so much of your life on the internet, it makes sense that Oakley would need time to recharge.
“I feel like it is so underrated, so underappreciated.” Oakley said. “Time with myself, time with my thoughts. Because when you’re around somebody, around people all day long including when you’re on your phone, because when you’re scrolling you are virtually surrounded.”
