Teen YouTube sensation Bethany Mota on creating an empire

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - At 18 years old, Bethany Mota - a once bullied teen from California- has created one of the most popular lifestyle channels on YouTube.

With nearly 7 million followers, Mota, who started out sharing makeup tips five years ago from her bedroom, has expanded to include DIY, fashion and perfume in her regular video posts.

"It was something that happened gradually," said Mota about her fan base.

She's produced more than 300 videos so far.

"I’ve always been focused on creating good, creative content," said Mota.

The teen has the support of her parents who allowed her to be home schooled in order to focus on growing her brand.

Mota is visiting the NYC area this week to promote her new perfume and clothing line available at Aeropostale.

Fans can meet Mota Tuesday, July 29, 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. at Menlo Park Mall in Edison, NJ; and on Wednesday, July 30, 4 p.m.- 6 p.m., at Danbury Fair Mall, Danbury, CT.
