When I have my bad days, all I have to think about is the person that inspires me. To me, inspiration is the process of instilling faith in someone to motivate him or her to do something. Many people do things simply out of the kindness in their heart, and do not realize they are inspiring others around them. Bethany Mota is the person who inspires me the most. Growing up, Bethany was bullied and soon began struggling with depression and anxiety. She decided to get out of bed one day and watch some YouTube videos, thus her finding the beauty community. She stacked some books (she didn't have a tripod at the time) and began to record her first video. By 2104, Bethany has 7 million subscribers and has over 200 million views. She continues to devote many hours of time creating fun, inspiring YouTube videos for her fans, along with traveling all around the world to meet them. She also started a clothing line at Aeropostale and she is currently on a show, Dancing with the Stars. She inspires me for many reasons. She has inspired me by helping me with my struggle with boredom, shyness and bullying whenever I was younger. She basically helped me be who I am today. She makes me smile, she makes me happy, and she makes me feel like myself. She always tells us (her fans) that we’re all beautiful in our own ways and to be confident and strive for success. Showing us the she strived her dreams and successfully doing it makes me feel like I will have a chance in this world to not be afraid. Her success, being us (her fans) watching and admiring her, is world-wide which is amazing, giving us pre-teen girls a role model. A role model that was once afraid to have a voice and now is world-wide famous. She has been my idol since 2011 and has inspired me to believe in myself and to even be myself.
