There seem to be infinite paths to fame in today’s digital world, but Danielle Carolan has become a full-time content creator the old-fashioned way: through hard work and dedication. In this interview, she reveals a sneak peek into her life as a creator.

Q: Danielle, could you share with us how you became a full-time content creator?

A: Sure! I started creating YouTube videos when I was twelve, just sharing stories about middle school, getting braces, and all those fun things. Over time, I built a strong relationship with my audience through authenticity and dedication to sharing my experiences.

Q: What inspired you to start sharing your life on YouTube?

A: I’ve always loved being on camera and sharing stories, even from a young age. As I grew older, I realized the power of connecting with others through shared experiences and that’s what drove me to continue creating content.

Danielle’s podcast, Gals on the Go!, with Brooke Miccio, has been a successful venture for both women. This collaboration came about in college when Danielle and Brooke met and instantly clicked. Danielle says of their work together, “We both had a passion for creating content and connecting with our audience, so starting the podcast felt like a natural progression of our friendship and shared interests.”

As another big step in her career, Danielle moved to New York City to help open up doors for content creation. She says that it allowed her to explore new opportunities, meet interesting people, and take her content to a level that was impossible before. “Plus,” she says, “it’s just such an inspiring place to live and create.

A: AM Uncovered is all about exploring morning routines and getting to know people on a deeper level. Living in NYC, I get to meet so many fascinating creatives, and I want to share their stories in a unique way. It’s been a really fun and rewarding project so far.

Q: Fashion seems to be a big part of your life and content. Can you tell us more about that?

A: Absolutely! I’ve always been passionate about fashion, so getting the opportunity to design my own jewelry collection was a dream come true. Each piece is inspired by something meaningful to me, like my favorite movie or my heritage, and it’s been incredible to see them come to life.

Q: How do you think your dedication to authenticity has shaped your career?

A: I think authenticity is everything when it comes to content creation. My audience trusts me because they know I’m genuine and real with them. Whether I’m sharing school adventures or designing jewelry, staying true to myself has always been my top priority.
