Why We Love Dixie D'Amelio
She is relatable
Unlike most internet celebs of today’s age and time, Dixie has built a brand out of appearing ordinary. She is simple, polite, and humble. Moreover, she has had a rather regular upbringing and lifestyle that fuels the American dream — the belief that one can climb up the socioeconomic ladder by working hard. These attributes separate her from the usual larger-than-life celebrities and make us admire her all the more!
She works very hard
The common perception of internet fame is that it is easy to achieve, but this idea could not be farther from the truth. In “The D’Amelio show,” it was evident that she had to sacrifice much of her ‘normal’ teenage life to excel in her career. Moreover, she has to face online hate daily, which can be tough on anyone, especially a public figure.
She condemns cyberbullying
It is common knowledge that cancel culture is on the rise. Consequently, just as most celebrities, Dixie often becomes an easy target for online bullies who hide behind anonymity and leave mean and hateful comments. Therefore, she strongly condemns cyberbullying and is now working with UNICEF to create awareness around the same.
