Not everyone can wear flowered pants and get a positive remark, but Jacob Keller is finding a way. The twenty year old has managed to get a college scholarship and gain views on YouTube by wearing flowered pants and other fashionable clothes. Guys find his channel inspirational and girls just think he's a babe! According to The Oregonian, his mother even helps him shop and make videos to share on Google's social networking video site.
Jacob hasn't always looked this good, but since his recent fame on YouTube, he is finding that the clothes he wears makes him feel more confident. His mother may have been hesitant at first about him having her son post videos online about fashion, but after he received a college scholarship and continued to keep his grades high, she is proud of her son.
Many teens and young adults are finding ways to make themselves popular online through social networking. Videos allow young people to inspire others through music, art, and fashion. Although online bullying and pre-suicide videos have plagued the site, there seems to actually be more good than bad overall. Many teens are finding a way to share a positive message to millions of users. Hopefully, Jacob Keller will continue to keep others inspired through his channel and positive messages.
