Actor & YouTuber, Taylor Skeens, Says It’s Time To Be Selfish And Pursue Your Dreams
Please introduce yourself to The LA Note Magazine, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about Taylor Skeens.
Hi, my name is Taylor Skeens I’m a southern YouTuber that loves to entertain. I was born and raised in Virginia but moved to Albuquerque New Mexico to pursue my dreams in the acting business. Dreams are starting to come true so you’ll probably see me on Netflix soon 😉
What qualities makeTaylor Skeens different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
Personality! might sound a little cliche but I’m a simple girl, that loves sharing her life!
Social media has allowed me to show my (girl next door) personality and create an amazing fan base that feels deeply connected with me for years 🙂
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
I realized that I wanted to entertain (be a social media star/actor) the moment one of my viewers told me my videos are their only escape.
I grew up in an abusive household and I remember how I felt when I would log onto social media and escape from reality, it was the only time I was smiling. To know that I can do that for someone else means the world.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
My family’s disappointed in me when I first started social media. They would tell me “you’re embarrassing us” “you’re giving our family name a bad name,” I think it was the first time in my life I decided to be selfish and do what I wanted to do.
I continued to do social media despite what they said to me and I’m so grateful I didn’t stop. Social media has brought me so many cool experiences and opportunities.
Now my family and I are in a good place so that’s good news lol
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
Okay my FAVORITE director Ari Aster
I know that we could make magic together
David spade because he’s been DMing me on Instagram for a few months. We’re supposed to fight. I’m not kidding lol I’m ready to throw these hands David
And Tana Mongeau
I’ve actually already met her once in 2016 and it was an embarrassing experience but she was super sweet. She’s completely turned her career into a BOSS ass bitch brand and I respect that! I think we could also be great friends!
