  • Jaiden defines herself as shy and awkward, which makes the audience connect and relate to her

Jaiden Animations (@JaidenAnimation) is a channel that has used the YouTube platform to tell stories and experiences, but not in a way any other YouTuber would tell their tales.
The channel, which Jaiden started as a young teenager in 2014, explores a variety of topics, from her experiences traveling overseas to personal stories about sports, childhood and school.
With her hilarious animations and her sidekick, a pet bird called Ari, the 22-year-old has attracted 8.04 million subscribers.
Her videos are usually tell stories but some of the videos also convey messages such as the truth about toxic relationships, body positivity and other things, including anxiety and depression.
Jaiden defines herself as shy and awkward, which makes the audience connect and relate to her. She is also friends with other YouTube animators such as Odd1sout and TonyvToons. She has uploaded collabs with these YouTubers. Her animation style is witty, and nothing feels overdone.
One of my favorite videos from this channel is the one where she tells the tale of her trip to Japan — the animation is worth watching.
