Meet Gabby and Nadia, FLVS Student YouTubers
Gabby and Nadia, Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Full Time students and YouTubers, share their passion for hair and fashion through their channel, LMC Beauties.
With more than 2 billion active users on YouTube, it can be difficult for an aspiring YouTuber to stand out in the virtual crowd. However, FLVS 6th grade student Gabby and 4th grade student Nadia have done just that, earning more than 23,000 subscribers on their channel!
Gabby and Nadia started LMC Beauties five years ago with the help of their mother, Valerie, to share their natural hair journey with other families. They explained that “beauty videos quickly became the focal point of most of our videos” as their channel started to grow.
After being featured on a major brand’s Instagram account, their channel took off. Valerie says, “Our growth on YouTube has been shocking to say the least. We never thought that sharing hairstyles would bring so much attention to our little channel.”
Through the growth of their channel, Gabby and Nadia say, “Being YouTubers has taught us about organization, planning, and priorities, because we have to make sure all of our schoolwork and chores are done before we make videos!” YouTube has also helped them both find their passion and confidence.
“Nadia would have never turned on her camera for virtual school, or even participated in class if she hadn’t started speaking on the YouTube platform first. Nadia went from not wanting to be on camera by herself, to wanting her very own YouTube channel.”
As an aspiring dancer, Nadia says that Charli D’Amelio, competitive dancer and most-followed person on Tik Tok, has been one of her biggest inspirations. Gabby has discovered a passion for filming and editing. This year she is taking M/J Creative Photography 1 to learn more about how cameras work and use these skills to improve her YouTube channel. She also enjoys writing scripts and creating cartoons, which have inspired her to pursue a future career in Film.
Gabby and Nadia have both been with FLVS Full Time since Kindergarten, where they enjoy the flexibility to learn at their own pace with the support of their teachers. Valerie shared, “we tell all our friends and family members that homeschooling doesn’t have to be a scary process with FLVS. Gabby and Nadia are learning and thriving, and we’d like to thank FLVS for making that possible.”
Gabby would like to send a special thank you to her 4th grade teacher, Mr. Reynolds, for her support and encouragement. Nadia would like to thank 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Rowe, for helping her stay motivated and supporting her as she worked toward her academic goals.
On their family vlog, Gabby and Nadia attend a Florida Virtual School field trip to SeaWorld Orlando.
