Hi Tommy, You don't need a particular degree to achieve Youtube fame but you have to have an expertise that are interesting to many people. Did you know Adele got her start on Youtube? If you want to sing on youtube then focus on your music skills. If you want to do funny science experiments on youtube, then take science courses at school. Ask yourself, "what do I most like to watch on youtube and what do I need to be able to do this?" It sounds like you might want to be a performer? Maybe join the school choir or try out for a play?

I'll be seeing you on youtube!

Greetings Tommy! In addition to focusing on your particular topic for your YouTube channel, as Ms. Fein mentioned, you may also want to look into some video production/editing courses along with some basic web design skills. Having the ability to edit/produce your content and design your website is a huge asset, especially when you are getting started.

Once you are established you can hire other people to do that work, but understanding the process of creating content, and how to utilize your social media, website, etc. to promote that content is very important. Fortunately, colleges are offering courses in social media, online marketing, and other related fields now. Just stay focused and pursue your passion. You will be great!
