HK: What if your fame doesn’t last? YD:

HK Magazine - - UPFRONT -

I rose to pop­u­lar­ity faster than ex­pected, so I do worry about run­ning out of ideas. I’ve had peo­ple ac­cuse me of copy­ing YouTu­bers like Mi­randa Sings. I did bor­row their style of pre­sen­ta­tion, but the con­tent is all mine. It’s like danc­ing: Ev­ery­one starts out by copy­ing their in­struc­tors. Some­times you just need to em­u­late other peo­ple’s style to find your own. At some point, view­ers might get sick of Miss Turkey, so I try to stick to what peo­ple like about Miss Turkey: She tells it like it is. But even if Miss Turkey lasts only six months, I hope Yanki can ben­e­fit from the at­ten­tion. I’ve al­ways wanted to be­come a celebrity. Now, I’m liv­ing the dream. Peo­ple come up to me for pho­tos and au­to­graphs, call­ing me “Miss Turkey” or, even bet­ter, “Yanki.” Even older gen­er­a­tions know who I am: I was at a herbal tea shop and an aun­tie there gave me a free tea egg be­cause she rec­og­nized me. As a kid I wanted to be a singer but didn’t know how to get into the in­dus­try and was afraid to take part in com­pe­ti­tions. Be­ing a dancer, and now a YouTu­ber, has opened up more op­por­tu­ni­ties, in­clud­ing singing.
