Ingrid Nilsen Talks YouTube Success, Fashion Inspirations and Rap Obsession – Watch the Video!

Ingrid Nilsen held a special Q&A and fan meet-and-greet last week in New York City, and CelebSecrets4U was on-site to give you the scoop on what went down!

On March 24th, Story and AwesomenessTV hosted a special event featuring YouTube sensation Ingrid Nilsen. Story is a boutique in New York City that changes from week to week. What makes this retail store so different is the fact that it has a point of view like a magazine, changes like a gallery, and sells things like a store. When we arrived, Story was decorated to Ingrid Nilsen’s liking which included coffee, pillows, warm colors, and of course donuts!

At the event, fans and aspiring beauty gurus listened to Ingrid’s “story” with an interesting Q&A hosted by Story founder Rachel Shechtman. Ingrid spoke about her early YouTube beginnings, living in New York and Los Angeles, and her overall style. After Ingrid’s story, fans asked the 26-year-old for tips on how to start their own YouTube channels and style advice. When the Q&A session ended, Ingrid met every fan that came out, and even took some epic selfies on their phones!

Right before the meet-and-greet, CelebSecrets4U sat down with Ingrid to get the deets on one of our favorite YouTubers. In our interview, Ingrid talks about meeting her fans, having over 3 million subscribers on YouTube, and her fashion inspirations. She even told us she’s obsessed with rap music and loves to sing along to it ALL the time!

Check out our interview and photos from the event below.
