Jezuba wishes to continue honoring influential figures as our way of spreading awareness and inspiring others, therefore today I would like to share my story.
Back when YouTube was on the rise, I remember stumbling across multiple channels that caught my eye: KevJumba, Nigahiga, and WongFu Productions, to name a few. But the YouTuber who made the biggest impression on seventh grade me was Bubzbeauty. I was a young girl with typical teenage insecurities and a shy personality, but after watching her talk videos on self-confidence, true happiness, and friendship, I was instantly inspired by her radiance and positivity. I grew only more intrigued as I dug deeper into her makeup, hair and fashion tutorials. Needless to say, Bubzbeauty was the biggest inspiration to becoming the person I am today.
Lindy Tsang (better known as Bubzbeauty) has influenced people across the world with her kindness and wisdom. Since launching her Youtube platform in 2009, she’s taken her viewers on her journey of young adulthood to now motherhood. Many people recognize her as a popular Youtuber in the makeup and fashion community, but she’s also well known for her commitment to social impact. Lindy digs deep into true beauty, emphasizing that it comes from a kind and compassionate heart.
This recurring concept of true beauty appears in her book, A Beautiful Mind, A Beautiful Life: The Bubz Guide to Being Unstoppable. It was through reading this book that fans like myself were able to delve into the reality of her life and hardships she had overcome. Each time she talked about the lessons she learned and gave heartfelt advice for those who may be going through a tough time, I was wowed. I found it difficult to put down the book, and even after finishing I reread it several times. There were many takeaways, but the one that stuck out to me the most are these words:
“The more you give, the more you receive. When you are able to step outside of yourself to help others, that will give you the most meaning. True fulfillment comes from being part of something that’s bigger than yourself.”
These magical words resonated with me and aligns with what we at Jezuba wish to accomplish. We're an organization dedicated to not only making a social and economical impact, but also to empowering young individuals to give back to their community. Jezuba is raising funds to help mercy villages in Burma, similar to how Bubzbeauty launched multiple campaigns to raise funds for Pencils of Promise (a non-profit organization that builds schools and provide education for young children in underserved communities). With the help of the Bubzbeauty community, Bubzbeauty has helped build two schools in Laos and three in Ghana with the profits made from the sale of sweaters, t-shirts, and lip kits. Jezuba looks to Bubzbeauty as a source of inspiration with the profits made from our lovely selection of artisans’ goods and greeting cards.
I can go on all day about how much I love Bubzbeauty, but she is something to see for yourself. I hope you find inspiration from Bubzbeauty the way I did, and support us at Jezuba on our journey to making the world a kinder place.
Content Strategy Intern, Jezuba
