The Shorty Interview with Will Shepherd

What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?

What a straight question. Probably: you are the only one responsible for your own happiness.

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

My grandma haha.

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

Omg daily. If people spamming my feeds then it's bye bye.

Why should we vote for you?

That's too much pressure. If you think I deserve it, then it makes sense to vote for me haha.

Biography

I grew up in rural Florida with tough parents and an even tougher crowd of kids. Bullying and abuse were a daily occurrence and being gay didn't help, but I managed to escape the South and now live in Los Angeles with my fiance and German Shepherd creating YouTube videos. After my YouTube channel took off while studying mathematics and statistics at FSU, I pursued my path as a video blogger and haven't regretted a single decision since.

How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?

I've always made it my mission to use my YouTube channel to promote positivity. Growing up LGBT in the South, I didn't really have any defined role models to admire and it made me feel isolated and alone. My purpose with my channel is to provide a resource for those LGBT youth who don't have a role model and show them that homosexuality is just as normal as heterosexuality. We've managed to affect many lives, heterosexual and homosexual alike, and hope to continue to change the world by being normal.
