You know how you always hear people talking about loving yourself before getting with someone else? Or that you need to love yourself because it’s healthy? Well, it’s true. People, you need to love yourself! Don’t believe me? Maybe this youtuber will do a better job of convincing you…
Meet Anna Akana. She’s an actress/writer from LA whose quirky videos resonate with anyone that’s awkward, socially imbalanced, a homebody! With every video comes an issue or experience we can all relate to at some point, told through comedy sketches. With herself.
She’s like the American equivalent to Natalie Tran of CommunityChannel. Oh and she’s also the girlfriend to youtuber, Ray William Johnson!
Anyway, I found her through Twitter when a friend of mine tweeted a link to one of her videos. It wasn’t long before I got completely sucked in, staying up till the wee hours of the morning clicking on every, single one of her videos. Like Natalie, Anna just gets me.
Is that creepy? No, because this is the internet. It’s flattering!
Anyway, if you’re interested in learning what benefits there are to loving yourself or even how to cope with living with yourself, then keep scrolling and laugh along with me to my latest youtuber discovery – because finding hilarious youtubers is a conquest – that is Anna Akana!
