Bella roberts, 2019 vlogstar challenge winner

This is crazy, I’ve never won anything like this before. I hope this brings me towards my journey of becoming a film director and I want to thank you all and everyone I met through doing this. Something only needs to be as hard as you think it should be.

My hopes for everyone that took part is to feel their passion can come to life, to have the confidence and the resilience to go out into the world with the experience they’ve had doing this. This is something they can call their own and no one can take it from them.
