Elizabeth Shaila Koshy, better known as Liza Koshy, is an American actress, television host, comedian and YouTuber. She began her career on Vine in 2013, before starting a YouTube channel later on. Her career started when Liza started Vine and began growing more and more popular with every short video she uploaded. When she finally opened up another platform to connect with her fans, Liza began uploading comedic videos every week on YouTube.
Sure enough, Liza’s following started to increase rapidly on Youtube. Even though Vine shut down in 2016, she continued to thrive in her career because of her similarly hilarious videos on YouTube. Currently, she has over 17 million subscribers on YouTube and more than 17 million Instagram followers. Liza’s videos on youtube are undeniably funny and never fail to drag me into watching more and more. Even re-watching her videos again and again is entertaining, and you can never quite get sick of her humourous jokes and puns.
Ever since day one, she stood by her values to love herself and appreciate herself no matter what she looks like and what others think of her. In 2018, Liza herself went through a tough patch and took a break from youtube for the majority of the year. During that time, Liza posted a few videos updating her fans about how she was doing and explaining the long break from YouTube. She uploaded a compilation of the videos she attempted to film during this time and shared her true feelings and weaknesses with her audience. She re-assured everyone who was going through a similar experience as her, that it would all get better.
Ever since I began watching her videos on YouTube last year, and taking my time to watch all her older videos from start to end, it made me feel at ease and significantly happier when I watched her videos. It taught me that happiness is a choice, and that we need to learn to find it in our lives. Slowly, I gained respect for her, that she was able to share her real feelings and be open about her true self.
