'It's addicting': Elle Mills on YouTube and the pressure to get views
Originally published on October 2, 2018
Elle Mills is a YouTuber from Ottawa, Ont., who makes videos in the vein of John Hughes films. Her unique style caught viewers' attention and quickly made her a cult favourite on the platform. It all happened very fast, and if you ask her now, maybe a little too fast. Mills joins q host Tom Power to talk about how she navigates success and the dangers of YouTuber burnout.
Update from Mills, December 2018: I'm still working on prioritizing my mental health! Also, I'm learning that I should be valuing progression over perfection. No giant updates, still creating videos and just taking it one day at a time.
