Erika Diane, born on December 12, 2005, is a well-known YouTuber and content creator. “Well-known” may be putting it mildly — she’s more of an online sensation. Since she launched her YouTube Channel, “ErikaDiane,” in 2019, Diane’s become a household name and teen role model in the United States. She loves making lifestyle videos and content to uplift and entertain other teenagers like her. The videos are fun and conversational, like a friend chatting with you. On some days, she puts out videos about beauty products. On others, she discusses her mental health or adorably rants about cramming for an exam. If she’s feeling cheeky, Diane will make content out of the mean comments or messages people send her. She achieves all this while still attending school, church, and hanging out with her friends.

Before Erika Diane found YouTube, her preferred platform was Instagram. She launched her Insta account in 2018, which became insanely popular. The page is a visual diary of her everyday life and features some of her modeling content. She was inspired to launch her YouTube channel after following her favorite content creators — including Marla Catherine, Sydney Serena, Taylor Layman, and Alivia D’ Andrea. With her mother’s encouragement and support, Diane launched her YouTube Channel in 2019.
Her popularity skyrocketed during the pandemic in 2020. Her videos spoke about the challenges of online schooling. She addressed themes such as how to stay motivated, eat well, manage stress, and work out. Could we point out for added emphasis that Diane’s still a teenager? Since then, Diane has amassed a massive fan following on YouTube — 767,000 subscribers, to be precise. What strikes viewers the most is her maturity and confidence, especially for someone so young. Some of her most popular videos feature the everyday things — how she wakes up at 5 am every day, what she eats, or pulling an all-nighter for school. The rising YouTube star shoots her videos own using the Canon 80D and the Canon G7x Mark II. She makes final edits on Final Cut Pro X.
It took her only three years to go from contemplating a YouTube Channel to becoming a successful influencer. Her Instagram account just is as successful. Since her smashing debut online as a content creator, Diane also endorses several businesses and products through her social channels.
