50 Questions: All you ever need to know about Lauren Curtis
50 Questions is a regular series on Husskie where we feature a quick-fire interview with top influencers.
Not one of Lauren Curtis’ 3.5 million subscribers on YouTube or 3.7 million followers across Instagram and Facebook? Well, let me tell you something that’s made pretty obvious by those numbers – this girl is killing it. After hitting play on her YouTube channel in late 2011 – where she would upload short films made on her iPhone 4, Lauren (or Loz, as she’s commonly known) has gone on to become one of Australia’s biggest YouTube successes.
So who better to headline Husskie’s very first “50 Questions” series – a regular feature found on the site where we shoot off a collection of questions to top influencers.
