Creating one hit video is tough enough, but churning them out every couple of days is incredibly impressive.

YouTube star 18-year-old Katie Betzing of Romeo has been growing a big following, making fun videos since she was just 15 years old.

"Growing up, I've always wanted to make little videos and I was like, 'I should put these on YouTube,'" said Betzing. 

From makeup tutorials to Instagram hacks, her videos have accumulated more than 5 million views combined. Her page has more than 300,000 subscribers and continues to climb. She says initially it was hard to reach 50,000, but once she did, her popularity shot up. 

"It was 50,000-- then about two weeks later, it was 100,000," said Betzing. 

Betzing is now chasing her dream to the West Coast and planning collaborations with other YouTubers.
