By Avery Stankus – Editor-in-chief

On Friday, May 1, Digital Star David Dobrik hosted a private Q&A over Zoom set up by Campus Activities Board. He and his assistant, Natalie Marideuna, repped Lasell gear while answering an abundance of questions sent in by students. 

Over 300 Lasell students joined in on the hour-long call to listen in on what he had to say. From sharing stories with celebrities to secrets about The Vlog Squad, Dobrik enthusiastically discussed that and everything in between. He also shared post-grad advice for the graduating seniors.

 “I [followed] what I loved doing. That’s what I did, I continued doing what I wanted to do. I was like I want to do something in the entertainment world and then it was luck and waiting for the right opportunity,” said Dobrik. “My dad would always say work hard…There wasn’t an opportunity for me to work hard until this opportunity presented itself: Vine. And I was like okay, this is my ticket to LA, this is where I start working hard. You just have to wait for the right opportunity.”
