About Molly Burke

“A 23-year-old girl who loves makeup and fashion, downhill skiing, yoga, and drinking a lot of tea,” Molly Burke is a YouTube vlogger whose subscriber count soared after appearing on a Casey Neistat vlog in July. Casey saw something in her that’s uniquely impressive—sure, she posts travel vlogs, challenges, and beauty tutorials just like so many other YouTubers, but Molly is blind, having lost her sight at a young age to a rare disease. What’s even more inspiring is her incredible attitude towards life, something she shares as a motivational speaker in appearances the world over. In 2017, she decided to move to LA from her native Canada, getting her green card as an “Alien of extraordinary ability.” Her 210K+ total subscribers know that’s an understatement.
