If you’re an avid Youtube watcher ™, you watch Shameless Maya. She’s the woman that shaved her head on video, whose youtube channel is a one-stop-shop for hair, tech, and lifestyle, and the woman who is encouraging people far and wide to shamelessly promote themselves 365 days a year.
In honor of her birthday and her 5 years of Youtube, Shameless Maya hosted a huge Anniversary party in Los Angeles! Shameless Maya’s Anniversary took part in a 3-story loft in Santa Monica. How LA of her. There was a lobby on the ground level, a dance floor on the second, a photobooth, bathroom, and Shameless Shop with ridiculously long lines on the third, and lastly, a rooftop! The energy was incredible and the DJs were AH-Mazing. They had the perfect soundtrack to accompany the event.
Personally, Maya is part of what inspired me to create this very blog. As you know, I’m on my own personal journey of living fearlessly and a lot of her story resonated with me. At the party’s panel discussion, hosted by Hey Fran Hey of The Friendzone, Maya talked about what led her to start her Youtube channel. She discussed an idea I’ve had many a time: by not putting yourself out there or being *shameless*, you can be holding yourself back . How will people know how awesome you and your work is if they don’t even know who you are? Be shameless! The event was fun, but it also gave me some confidence to go harder!
Check out her recap below (I’m in there chilling by the dance floor of course):
