Jennifer Recio Lebedev’s Personal Reflections on Her 15-Year YouTube Journey Will Be Displayed at the L.A. Times Festival of Books 2023

Jennifer Lebedev may not stream games or play music covers, but for many ESL students, she’s their YouTube celebrity as the host of ‘English with Jennifer.’ She recently published a book describing her journey to earning over one million subscribers. The book is set to be exhibited by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, where she hopes it will inspire the next generation of content creators.

“I found it hard to put down. A book I would advise to all content creators - online and offline - and all those who use creativity in their job.”

The 2023 L.A. Times Festival of Books – which will take place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles – is expected to feature many famous content creators alongside their publications. However, not all of them are musicians, hobbyists, or gamers. There are also many well-known educators, such as Jennifer Lebedev, author of “Being a YouTuber: One Creator’s Bumpy Road to 1M Subscribers.

Known as ‘English with Jennifer’ on YouTube, Lebedev is popular among her subscribers for lessons that are encouraging, helpful, and calming. Her videos are characterized by her gentle, well-spoken style, and she has been producing them since 2007. She now has over a million subscribers, which earned her the famed Golden Play Button from YouTube.

Of course, the journey has not been smooth, as her recent book “Being a YouTuber” attests. In it, she shares something that falls between a memoir of her own creator journey and a guide for anyone who dreams of getting their own Golden Play Button someday.

In a world where celebrity creators are more likely to be musicians, gamers, chefs, or business coaches, , Lebedev’s book shows there is a path to success even for educators such as herself. What’s important is understanding one’s purpose and having the passion to make an ongoing contribution.

Admittedly, Ms. Lebedev didn’t know that YouTube would become the foundation of her online career when she started. She certainly didn’t have a lot of the tools many aspiring content creators have access to today.

What she did have is a desire to teach and the skill to do it, which led to videos that people liked. This, in turn, connected her to a community of like-minded content creators for education. Like many of them, she struggled to juggle her personal life with the need to produce content and gain the much-desired views, likes, and new subscribers. Over time, she learned to set her boundaries, striking the right balance and achieving her vision of a successful online teacher. The main message of her book is for each creator to define success on their own terms. In fact, her story conveys a lesson that anyone and everyone can embrace: we are each capable of inspiring and being inspired.

Visitors to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will find “Being a YouTuber: One Creator’s Bumpy Road to 1M Subscribers” by Jennifer Recio Lebedev displayed at the ReadersMagnet exhibit at booth #225. The book is available on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
