So, who is Bethany Mota?

The California native was home-schooled most of her life with older sister Brittney. She experimented with public school, but admitted she had issues with bullies, according to the biography page on her personal website.

Soon after, Mota found solace in the beauty community on YouTube. With a newfound love of makeup and fashion, she began creating videos featuring hair, makeup, fashion and DIY tutorials, and found she had quite a few fans.

Seven years later, Mota is a successful YouTube blogger with over 7 million subscribers. On top of that, she has launched her own clothing line in collaboration with the popular teen clothing company, Aeropastle. Latest to her collection are her own room décor and perfume lines, also through Aeropastle.

This year Mota took home the Choice Female Web Star at the Teen Choice Awards.

Bethany Mota is clearly making a name for herself, and her newest venture at DWTS might just make that huge impact she needs. Only time will tell if her dance moves are as swinging as her beauty tutorials.
