Finalist in YouTuber of the Year

About Emma Chamberlain

With her social engagement topping that of some celebrity giants, breakout award-winning content creator Emma Chamberlain is taking over YouTube. Posting her first YT video in June 2017, Emma’s effusive sarcastic wit rapidly captured a massive following eager for her contagious day-in-the-life humor, amassing nearly 7M subs on her channel in a little over one year. Adding Sister Squad collabs with the Dolan twins and James Charles to her repertoire, Emma’s success has captured media attention. But such massive growth comes with a price, recently she started speaking out about her anxiety and depression, showing her fans that there’s more to her vlogs than her witty banter, adding a layer of human complexity and maturity rarely seen on YouTube.
