Meet Jayla Watson, fashion vlogger! Jayla is the youngest inspiring lady that I’ve featured so far!
A little about Jayla
I’m a high school senior in Durham, North Carolina. Along with taking traditional high school classes, I am also in cosmetology school. This coming fall I will be going to college out-of-state and majoring in fashion merchandising. Last summer I attended LIM (Laboratory Institute of Merchandising) in Manhattan, NY, where I studied fashion photography and participated in behind the scenes fashion field trips. I met some amazing people that made me go from just loving fashion to wanting a career in fashion.
It’s incredible that you’ve been able to reach so many people! How are you inspiring others through fashion?
I am known as GlamAholic54 on YouTube. I create videos about my fashion buys, the latest trends, and how I style them. Living in a town where fashion isn’t at the forefront, I needed somewhere to express myself. I currently express my passion for fashion to my audience of over 25,000 subscribers. I would say YouTube is half hobby and half job. It’s honestly not as easy as it looks, but I wouldn’t change it at all. I have had some amazing opportunities working with online fashion retail sites and have even meet some really cool boutique owners.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I do a little bit of everything in my spare time. I’m either…
- Reading a book
- Recording or editing a video
- Planning new videos
- Styling outfits for videos
- Answering emails
- Working on my online site (coming soon!)
- Styling hair
- Painting my nails
- EATING 🙂
- Hanging out with my friends
Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? Who?
Yes, some people have said that I look like Tiffany Evans.
