Niki DeMartino Creates ‘The Truth About’ Series


“Loving yourself is the greatest revolution.”

Niki DeMartino came out with a video recently opening up about her eating disorder. It was well received, and she wanted to continue being honest and have conversations about self-worth struggles and perfectionism. She decided to make a series on her YouTube channel called “The Truth About.”

For the first episode, Niki DeMartino sat down with Sierra Furtado to have a raw conversation about self-worth and the reality of being a YouTube star. Sierra talked about her extreme weight loss and changes in appearance, due to her deep-rooted insecurities. She opens up about bottling up her emotions and not sharing her feelings with viewers and friends.

They both are from the same genre on YouTube, and they said that the “DIY-Saturation-Let’s make our lives look perfect” generation was a complete façade. At the end of the 20 minutes, the influencers differentiate “social media happy” and “real life happy,” both choosing the latter.

Major props to Niki for using her platform in such an inspirational and sincere way.
