Dancing in the Rain

Reentering blogosphere with a happy song and a feel-good story about the impact of YouTube.

Bethany Mota was a victim of cyberbullying as a younger teen (she's 18 now!). Instead of moping, she turned to YouTube to find her voice. Bethany is now a social media star with nearly 7.5 million subscribers to her channel, and dances with talented dance pro, Derek Hough, on Dancing with the Stars. Last night, she shared these stories in her Most Memorable Year of Her Life dance. To the tune of Colbie Caillat's Try, Bethany shows how social media can sometimes be abused, but she chose to flip the negativity into something positive. She thrived.

Here's the other happy song I was talking about!
