“I am super aware that I’ve been given opportunities because of my parents and that I live a very blessed and fortunate and privileged life,” she said.

“But then there’s also a part of me that feels…it’s tricky. It’s hard to speak on because I know that to the average human, I have it easy,” she then said.

“There is a big misconception about me, I feel at least personally, where I get that comment of, ‘You don’t work hard.’ But I didn’t have to start my YouTube when I was 14. I did put in a lot of work. There’s all these rumors floating around about my grades — ‘She clearly didn’t work hard. She must have failed school.’ I don’t even think I’ve ever said this publicly, but in high school I had straight A’s and I worked really hard at school,” she clarified, adding that she “totally understands” why people would think that about her.

She also opened up about starting therapy at the start of the scandal.

“I started a few years ago when things went sideways in my family and with the college scandal. I just needed somebody to talk to. If you have the resource and you can, I would really recommend it.”

There are also reports about a new romance in her life.
