Chamberlain grew up in a working class family near San Francisco, California. As a young kid, Chamberlain had an infectiously outgoing personality, something she realized she wanted to use in her career one day.

Chamberlain started making videos with friends and learning how to edit them. With an artist and photographer for a dad, Chamberlain had help along the way.

In 2017, she suddenly had a viral video. The video in question was a “haul,” which is a clip of somebody showing off items from a shopping spree. She went to a dollar store and shared with fans several things she bought. Since “haul” videos were extremely trendy at the time on YouTube, Chamberlain ended up getting a lot of attention.

Afterwards, Chamberlain and her parents realized that she had a lot of potential as a YouTuber. She dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles to work on YouTube full time.

Emma Chamberlain recently landed the cover of Cosmopolitan

Chamberlain also recently achieved something big for an 18-year-old: She landed the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine.

In her cover story, Cosmopolitan noted that Chamberlain has a very relaxed-yet-cool demeanor, which she uses to connect with her viewers.

“Being her funny, awkward, easily excitable self was her lane,” the magazine wrote. “So she stayed in it, leaning in to harmless mockery of vegan pizza, her own zits, and more faux iterations of YouTube staples (makeup tutorials but terrible; pumpkin-spice product reviews but with choking)… Emma is, in other words, fully in on the joke—the joke being herself: someone who built her capital ‘B’ Brand by parodying the very thing she is.”
