When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, YouTube star Eva Gutowski is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.
Eva Gutowski is a good hugger. She welcomes everyone she meets with arms open, and makes it feel like you're greeting an old friend. At 22 years old she's already made a name for herself as the star of MyLifeAsEva on Youtube, but what started out as a means to get used to being in front of the camera, has now made her one of YouTube's fastest rising stars.
With over seven million subscribers, she understands the importance of having a platform in the digital age and doesn't take this opportunity to use her voice for granted. "I feel like the whole point of life is to just use your power for good," she tells me in an interview to promote her new show Me and My Grandma. "I’m sure a lot of [my viewers] are going through things, and if my story can help them, I feel it’s my duty to share it with people."
Just like in her videos, Gutowski wasn't afraid to hold anything back in the Bustle Booth, so check out her revealing answers below.
