About Candace Lowry

Candace Lowry wants you to realize that “adulting is hard!” The former BuzzFeed social media strategist very publicly left the company this year, posting a video in April 2017 about her reasons for doing so on her recently-launched YouTube channel. It went viral, helping to establish her as a popular comedic voice of her generation, doling out advice about dieting styles and popular fads. In 2017, she tried veganism, 1980s workouts, and vaginal jade eggs, commenting in her snarky way throughout each of the experiences. She gained nearly 350K subscribers in under one year on YouTube, all of whom look forward to seeing what Candace will attempt next!
