6 Successful YouTube Stars You Had No Idea Dropped Out of High School
While some YouTube stars like Jenna Marbles and Phil Lester have a master’s degree, others didn’t even make it to their high school graduation. Can you imagine having that conversation with your parents? “Hey mom and dad! Just wanted to let you know that I’m not going back to school because I really think I can become successful by sitting in my room and talking to a camera for strangers to watch.” It obviously sounds crazy, but a lot of people’s decision to pack up, move to Los Angeles and pursue their dreams WITHOUT the help of HS actually worked out.
Listen — we’re not saying you should drop out of school to become a YT celeb, or any kind of celebrity for that matter. Education is super important, but it’s obviously not the only way to achieve your dreams.
Before Andrea was a social media queen, she attended a Catholic high school in Indiana. When the girl decided to move out to California to pursue her career, she enrolled in online HS...before deciding school just wasn't for her.
"I had a half of a year left when I stopped," she said. "Just because I feel like everybody learns differently and I don't learn by reading and writing a report. I need to be doing something to learn."
Although she was once planning to make a video about being a high-school dropout, the YouTuber has hardly talked about her experience and it's a fact that not many fans know.
