Get the year off to a good start with a bunch of the best (and maybe new to you!) motivational YouTubers! We asked you for your favourites, and here’s who you picked:
Taz Alam (aka ClickForTaz) first created her YouTube channel as a space to share her spoken word poetry. After quickly gaining popularity, Taz now has over 1.4 million subscribers and her content ranges from lifestyle and travel vlogs to comedy, challenges and poetry - plus the occasional NCS vlog.
Seán William McLoughlin, aka, jacksepticeye is an Irish YouTuber, video game commentator, vlogger, voice actor and founder of clothing company CLOAK. With over 26 million subscribers, jacksepticeye is the 113th most subscribed channel on YouTube, and also the most subscribed channel in Ireland! He has also become well known for his charity streams raising millions of dollars for charities such as The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Save The Children, Red Nose Day, and, in April 2020, raised over $650,000 in 12 hours for COVID-19 relief funds.

Brent Rivera first gained popularity on the gone, but not forgotten Vine, and now has 15 million subscribers on YouTube. His uploads mainly involve silly pranks and challenge videos, with other YouTubers, friends and members of his family - his sister Lexi is also a YouTuber and TikTok star. Brent is also a popular actor, starring in Alexander IRL, and, in 2016, he teamed up with Hollister on their anti-bullying campaign - something close to his heart as he has experienced bullying on his online platforms.
