Emma Chamberlain is currently killing the YouTube game. Not only is she major style inspo on Instagram, she has worked with huge brands such as Off-White and Louis Vuitton, and now is the CEO of her own coffee brand, which fans will know is something very important to her; she loves her coffee!

Emma is only at the beginning of her career and definitely someone you should familiarise yourself with now. So, in order to do just that, we’ve compiled a crash course list of some facts you may not have known before!

She waited a year to upload a video after she created her YouTube channel

Yep, a whole year! Emma created her YouTube channel in 2016 but didn’t post her first video until 2017, which was called “City Inspired Summer Lookbook 2017”. Maybe it was nerves?  But we are so glad she decided to give YouTube a go in the end.

She used to be a cheerleader

She was a cheerleader on her high school team for a year and she was a member of the California All-Stars Pink cheer team. She made a video on Hannah Meloche’s YouTube page teaching Hannah and Ellie Thumann how to cheerlead.

Emma has been part of a lot of famous friend groups

As we know the YouTube world is full of different groups and squads. Emma has been a member of the ‘Sister Sqaud’ which was made up with James Charles and the Dolan Twins. They made numerous funny videos on each others channels. The squad came to an end in May 2019 after controversy with James Charles.

The three remaining members then named themselves the ‘Holy Trinity’, while Emma was rumoured to be dating Ethan Dolan at the time.

Emma and James have since made up and appear in a lot of TikTok’s together.

Aside from that (lots of YT dramz here!), Emma was also a member of the ‘Girdies’ a name Emma, Hannah Meloche and Ellie Thumann gave to themselves. They collabed on many videos in 2018 but the girls no longer follow Emma on Instagram.

She’s a vegetarian

Emma was raised on a vegetarian diet. She made a video called “Vegetarian tries meat for the first time” in 2018 where she had her first experience with meat. Safe to say she was not a fan.

Emma has two cats

She adopted her second kitten in order to give her first cat Declan a friend to play with. She adopted a female kitten and named it Frankie. She filmed a video on the day she went to adopt her cat which is on her channel now.

She has a podcast

Her podcast Stupid Genius started in April 2019. In the half hour long show she tries to answer funny questions such as “Why does our skin wrinkle in water?” and “Why do dogs lick Humans?”. Emma often prides herself on knowing a lot of random facts and so, this podcast suits her down to the ground.

Emma loves finding good bargains in thrift stores. Her eye for style really makes anything look cool, which is proven in her most recent video where she makes “ugly clothes look cute”, and she really shows how beneficial upstyling can be!

Timer pics are her secret weapon

A lot of the time Emma is alone at home when she needs to take an outfit picture. She has admitted that she has mastered the art of the timer pic so that it looks like someone else has taken it. Go take a look at her Instagram and see if you can spot them, we can never tell the difference! Genius!
