Who Am I?

I make leftist videos bi/weekly from an intersectional, anti-capitalist perspective. Due to the limited amount of time we have to address climate change, my main focus will be on climate-related issues. But I will also be discussing lots of other topics too such as veganism, political ecology, politics, feminism, sexual violence and economic and social injustices.

Why I Started This Channel?

I had initially wanted to pursue a PHD and become a lecturer, but I became increasingly disillusioned with the marketisation of education, how academic circles can often become an echo chamber, and that University and academic articles are inaccessible to most people. I wanted to provide leftist content that was accessible to a larger audience.

I strongly feel that Youtube, with over one billion people viewing it every single day, could be used as a powerful tool for effecting change and challenging our current system. I became increasingly disillusioned with the mainstream content on Youtube: the proliferation of right-wing, fascist content; the fact that the vast majority of female role models on Youtube were beauty and lifestyle channels; the promotion of neoliberal solutions to social and political problems. I also felt that there needed to me more female voices discussing anti-capitalist politics and providing an alternative type of role model to young women that isn’t centred around appearance and lifestyle. We need more people teaching young girls that politics isn’t exclusively a male sphere.

So, if it’s not too ambitious a goal, I want to be part of a movement that brings about a cultural shift on Youtube. I want to help educate people and raise awareness about the problems with, and solutions to, capitalism, and the pitfalls of neoliberal, individualistic and managerial solutions to social and political problems. I would like to be part of a movement that helps inspire people to collectivise and organise to create change, challenge the status quo and help bring about a more equal and just society.

What your money goes towards?

All the money I receive from patreon will be spent on equipment to improve the quality of my videos. This will include video and audio editing software, a microphone, camera and lighting. And 5 per cent of your donation goes to patreon themselves.

At the moment I just film videos on my phone and use a cheap microphone, as that’s all I’m able to afford. I wanted to give myself a year to fully dedicate my time to Youtube. As a result, I’m only working most evenings as a waitress, to give me the time during the day and at weekends to research and create videos, so any contribution would go a long way and I would be so incredibly thankful for your support!

My dream would be to eventually transition to making content full time, from podcasts, interviews with experts in leftist fields, to video essays, political spoken word poetry and short documentary films.

Goals
$12 of $200 per month
With this I will finally be able to buy a proper microphone and begin to save for a camera so that I no longer have to film with my phone to drastically improve the quality of my videos!

My dream would be to eventually transition to making content full time, from podcasts, interviews with experts in leftist fields, to video essays, political spoken word poetry and short documentary films.
