About This Interview:
Boomer (Boomer9168), from New Port Richey, Florida, sums up his YouTube experience in one phrase: "YouTube saved my life." Like many people, he began vlogging (and later, creating skits and collaborations) simply because he liked what he was seeing on other YouTube channels - and it looked fun. With the fun he found creating for a YouTube audience, he also discovered an opportunity to expand and enrich his own social life. In addition to friends around the world, he's also connected in person with local YouTubers in Florida. Online community has helped Boomer recover enthusiasm for life that he thought he's lost.
Today, he says, If he somehow lost access to a camera and couldn't be part of the YouTube community, "I would be heartbroken."
