She began dreaming about becoming a model while attending elementary school, as she and her friends would often read girly magazines and watch movies on TV, and it wasn’t until she turned 13 that Erin became interested in comedy and making her friends and family laugh. Not long after that, she was introduced to pranks and challenges and making people uncomfortable (in a comedic way) which later motivated her to work on her YouTube channel.
Erin matriculated from high school in 2009, and then chose not to attend college but to focus on her career on the internet – she also found a job to financially support herself while working on her way up.

Erin uses this channel to upload videos taken during her everyday life, and the most popular among these – “I GOT ENGAGED!! (the proposal)” – has been viewed over 400,000 times since 4 December 2018.
