YouTube Shooting
YouTube Shooting
Two days ago an attacker entered my office and shot at my coworkers. I was away at a team event and can't imagine how terrifying it must be for my friends who were on site.

Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.

Even though I wasn't there, watching my work chats unfold as it happened left me shocked and scared. People I know saw the body. They saw blood. They saw people being shot. I didn't want to see anyone die. It feels so close and real to me.

I'm still processing my feelings. Some part of me feels guilty I wasn't there when it happened.

A silver lining out of this is that YouTube is more united than ever. Healing together. Supporting each other. I feel so much love for my YouTube family and so thankful they're all alive.

I'm headed to Singapore in a month. Going to see if I can create a few more merch for Doujima 2018 (5-6 May, Suntec City).

Take care, stay safe. ❤
