The originator of our recent “Why I Love YouNow” campaign, Donovan “The Prince” Santiago, decided to write a few words on what YouNow means to him. Check out his video and his story below:
My name is Donovan Santiago I am 20 from Brooklyn, New York. I am a film major in college and I want to be an Actor, Film Director and a Writer. I first discovered Younow.com on Realitywanted.com. I looked in the contest section and I saw Younow.com, a site that would hold contests each week and anyone could enter – all you needed to do was go live and entertain the audience.
I thought “Why not,” I went live… and I have been hooked ever since! From entering “Reality School” (now called Robert Galinsky’s Reality Game Show), and winning six times to doing comedy and singing random songs to talking about serious topics. I like that I am able to do a variety of different things on YouNow. I love that I can talk about a variety of different topics.
Another thing I love about younow is the many different people on the website. From MsSassy Neighbor to Tahj to Just Bob, I love the different faces and they all bring something different and unique to the table. Since coming to YouNow in early October I have developed a fan base that keeps on growing and I’ve been given the support of many users. I will keep expanding my fan base and keep on broadcasting for a very long time.
Once I find a site a I like, like Facebook, YouTube and Wikipedia I keep using them. Younow.com is one of those sites that I will keep on using for a long time. I tell people if they get voted off just keep coming back show them why you are above the haters! I also like to promote being open minded and respecting everyone on YouNow. I feel like we can have a better site if everyone is open minded and gives everyone a chance to broadcast. I recently started the “Why I Love YouNow” campaign with a Youtube video on my account.

I plan to keep expanding The I Love Younow.com campaign until it gets big. I also want to do The End of Year Younow Awards, A Younow NYC Meetup and I have many other ideas I want to do. Younow has become a part of my life and I wear my Younow t-shirt with pride because I Love Younow.com! Here’s to the future!
