Senior Jackson Hensley films and posts pranks and vlogs on his YouTube channel, hoping to create a stress-free space for his friends, family, and viewers. 

Big-time channels have inspired Jackson to create content on YouTube. “There are a lot of big YouTubers out there that inspired a lot of people, including me. People like PewDiePie, Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, Lance Stewart, CoryxKenshin, and many more,” Jackson says. 

“Anyone can do YouTube like them, the only problem is it’s really hard to go viral,” Jackson said. “But anyone can do it as long as you work hard for it,” he added. 

Jackson also wanted to create videos for his friends and family. “I wanted to do YouTube to help out my friends and family so they wouldn’t have to be stressed out,” Jackson said. He wanted to create a place for people to escape the hardships of life. “Life can get hard for people, and it hurts me to see people struggle in the world, so I figured if I did YouTube, we wouldn’t have to stress out on hard stuff in life,” he says.

Jackson is not sure about his content creating future, but still enjoys making videos. “I don’t know if I’ll make it as a big YouTuber but it is fun making content on YouTube,” Jackson says. If he does make it as a big channel, Jackson has already planned out what he would like to do.  “I would be one of those big YouTubers that would do crazy vlogs, and big challenges,” Jackson says. “And have some roommates in a big house and we would do a lot of fun things together,” he adds.
