The Young YouTubers of BBES
By Raul Gregory, Student Life Editor
Surfing, trap music, and video games are some of the specialities of the young YouTubers of BBES. In this article, find out about three of our up and coming YouTubers, and get their links.
First check out “DEVIN WIGGINS,” the channel made by eighth grader — you guessed it — Devin Wiggins. It focuses on trap music, which is a hip hop music sub-genre that originated during the 1990s in the South. Devin, who takes his music career very seriously, loves the art form, and has always enjoyed music. He has been making and singing songs ever since he was a little boy. His music varies from a calm, slow tune to a fast-paced, heart-racing beat. His YouTube channel, which currently has 10 subscribers, consists of 34 videos that I really suggest you go check out. His songs are all original and were made using the Soundtrap app. Devin has always said that if you keep trying, all of that work will pay off. All in all, Devin’s YouTube channel is really great if you want to listen to a diverse collection of songs. I really would suggest you go check it out here.

Next up we have Kenny Stewart who also focuses on his passion. Instead of music, Kenny’s main focus is surfing. His YouTube channel, “K and H films” offers playlists and various videos of him really “shredding it.” Kenny, who is determined to become one of the pros, says his videos are for people who are interested in surfing, action sports, and beach activities in general. You’ll get to see some amazing recordings of different beaches, including the ones here in Bradley Beach. Here is the link.

Finally, eighth grader Aidan Carlucci created a YouTube channel two years ago: “Intent Burrito47.” The gaming channel, with eight subscribers, features Aidan playing video games including “Fallout 4,” a post-apocalyptic role playing game, and “Dead Rising 4,” a zombie game that takes place during Christmas. His inspiration comes from his older cousin Nick Cavano, who has played video games with Aidan for years.
He enjoys playing video games and he claims that they help him unwind when he is stressed. Other than playing video games, Aidan loves music and is really good at playing the guitar. His advice for up and coming BBES YouTubers: “Nothing is difficult unless you make it difficult.” Here is a link to his channel.
