Real name Zoe Sugg, Zoella also has her own autobiography titled Girl Online and a range of beauty products. However, the incredibly beautiful and popular 25-year-old millionaire recently made public that she suffers from crippling anxiety and severe panic attacks.
Zoella is simply one of millions that suffer from anxiety around the world and use various platforms to share their experiences online. “A lot of young people look at me and think, ‘She has the perfect life: she’s got the boyfriend, the house, the dog, the book, the successful YouTube channel,'” says Zoella. “Not everything is perfect. Sometimes I have days where I don’t want to leave my bed or I’ll have multiple panic attacks.” Despite this, Zoella was named an ambassador for British mental health charity, Mind – helping to raise awareness of anxiety among young people and help those who suffer from the mental health issues.
