About PushingUpRoses

For the past seven years, Sarah Wilson has been better known to the YouTube community as PushingUpRoses. On her channel, the Chicago native posts both gameplay and commentary videos, using the platform to discuss the gaming industry, in general. Additionally, she often brings up game theory, and how the content on our screens relates to elements and phenomena in the real world. Sarah’s thoughtful examinations of video game history, themes, and trends helped her add over 25K YouTube new subscribers in 2017, surpassing the 100K mark in November. She also uses her video game commentary to discuss mental illness, sharing her own struggles to help give others hope.
