YouTube, Interview, JustDestiny, Commentary Channels

My Interview With YouTuber JustDestiny

I’d like to introduce to a YouTuber who needs no introduction, JustDestiny. At over 1 Million subscribers and 11.8K followers on Twitter, the man has built up a steady platform online. You can only imagine my excitement when he agreed to an interview with me!

I got to know someone who is more than a person who cracks one hilarious joke after another, I got to know someone who is smart, kind and has a good head on his shoulders. I have no doubt that whatever he chooses to do in life, he will accomplish it.

Without further delay, here is our interview. Take it away JustDestiny!

1. I believe you started off as a commentary channel who played games while talking about trending topics (similar to other channels like Scarce). Are you still a gamer? And if so, what are your favorite games and are there any upcoming releases you’re looking forward to?
Yes, I started out as a commentary channel utilizing gameplay as background footage. Am I still a gamer? Yes, I would say so myself even though I don’t play nearly as much as I used to.
My favorite past released games are
• The Last of Us
• The God of War franchise
• Destiny (Where my name originated from)
• GTA5
• Super Mario Sunshine (2002)
• Pac Man World (2004)
The highly anticipated games I am waiting for are Control, The Last of Us 2, Death Stranding, Cyberpunk 2077, Nioh 2 and Beyond Good & Evil 2.
2. You said on your Instagram Q&A that you’re 20 and that you don’t see YouTube as a career. How long do you see yourself doing YouTube or is it kind of up in the air right now since you’re still pretty young?
I see YouTube as an outlet for creative production. For me, it’s not a legitimate job since it’s so unpredictable. As of right now, I’m using YouTube as an outlet for other opportunities for myself.
3. I know you started out as a gaming channel, transferred to top ten videos, and now do commentary videos according to your Instagram Q&A Part 2. Can you remind us why you decided to switch over to commentary videos? I know it has to do with you wanting to be a voice actor.
I started out as Gaming channel initially, yes. I never did Top 10 videos but, people thought I did because of my former name “Top10Destiny”. Also, I started doing commentary videos for a few reasons. Gaming videos weren’t working out and I was getting nowhere.
Also, I started doing commentary videos because at the time there was this whole Twitch Cam girl trend where Cam girls were starting to become “Twitch Streamers” back in 2015 and I wanted to talk about it. I deleted a lot of these old videos and I wish I didn’t but,
that was one of the reasons that sparked my journey into commentary videos.
4. I want to get to know you a little more. Are there any shows you’re currently streaming? I know you mentioned Black Mirror and Altered Careon. Are there any others? Also, is there any particular music that you like to listen to?
 As of right now, there aren’t really any shows I’m watching. I usually just watch YouTube videos.
5. You said in your Instagram Q&A Part 2 that you’ve been through a lot and that a lot of people have tried to hold you back in your life. I can relate. Thank you for sharing that. Do you plan on talking about that more on your channel or is that too difficult of a subject?
I’m glad I was able to share a personal side of me to the channel and, I’m glad you could relate. And, no. I don’t plan on sharing any more of that type of stuff with the JustDestiny channel.
But, I am starting a podcast very soon called “BeyondDestiny” and stuff like that could potentially be brought in the midst of conversations.
6. How do you feel about some of these people you’ve commented on going viral and even becoming celebrities, such as Danielle Bregoli and Woah Vicky? (I use the word celebrity loosely with Woah Vicky, though!)
I feel like they are smart individuals who exploited the internet to launch their way into internet fame.
Obviously, the certain tactics they’ve done to get to their positions are a bit outlandish and could be extreme at times but, it certainly did work for them.
And, I feel like, in this day and age with the internet and the millions of people seeking out new content every day, it’s easy to capitalize off of that demand.
People are always looking for some new form of entertainment and will succumb to whatever craziness they may see on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram etc.
Thus creating this, in my opinion, a unique form of narcism and numbness from the person consuming the content and the person producing the content.
Content creators are now pushing the boundaries of the morals to feed the hungry beast. The hungry beast being the people who consume this content, whatever that content may be.
7. Do you think you will pursue being a voice actor in the future? You have the talent to do so. 
Thank you for the compliment and yes, I will pursue being a voice actor very soon. I will do many things that I can utilize my voice for such as singing, podcast, commercials etc.
8. Looking ahead, you said you wanted to branch into different content, but didn’t want to lose your audience. That’s understandable. Can you give us any insight into what type of content you’d like to do and how do you think you’ll introduce us to it? I can say as a fan I’m open to any new content you want to share.
I would like to do some form of documentary-type videos, Interviews, exploring and going into details about certain topics like I did in my most recent videos with the Musically kids.
I just honestly want to take the channel to a new level. I want to gain some respect from other content creators for the content that I produce. I want to become a recognizable name in the YouTube community like Shane Dawson, KEEMSTAR, Adam22, Tana Mongeau etc. and I can see that goal coming true very soon.
Thank you very much JustDestiny! I can’t wait to see what you have in store in the future and am very proud of what you have accomplished so far.
