VidCon was an enlightening experience for us to be co-panelled with Gina Shalavi – Global Head of Top Creator Programs for YouTube Marketing, and fellow creators Mark Vins and Jina Kim. It was a moment of pride for us to represent India at a global level as we were the first and only Indian creators to be invited to speak at VidCon!There is a huge possibility that the creator economy will grow and remain for some time to come! Also, the NASA representative in the audience asked us questions about YouTube and offered to collaborate! We’re still stunned!
Having a space built just for creators gave us the opportunity to feel seen, heard, and valued for the first time in our lives. There was a sense of respect. We finally felt like someone understood us, we felt like we belonged!
Gautami further added,
There were so many eager fans who had purchased tickets to see their favourite creators across platforms all over the world. They bought so much merch and supported their favourite creators wholeheartedly which was touching to see.
VidCon was an event that was held on such a large event and we can’t wait for all of them to share everything they’ve learnt at the summit with us. Btw, Mr. Beast, SMOSH, Rebecca Black, etc were some internationally acclaimed creators who graced the occasion with their presence.
