Zoe Sugg aka Zoella has just used her platform to provide invaluable information to millions of young women and we applaud her for it.
What’s up? It’s Erin Robinson here with Clevver News and you know that women’s health and the importance of regularly seeing your doctor is something close to my heart.
So obviously, I was excited to see that Zoe Sugg, who’s better known as Zoella on the Internet, post a video of herself getting a live pap smear test with an additional Q&A with the nurse.
She has over 4.8 million subscribers on her channel and decided to use her platform for this really good cause.
Zoe wrote in the description of the video that quote, “I wanted to do something to help encourage more women to book and attend their cervical screenings.”
Which is truly so commendable.
Cervical screenings check for things like cervical cancer, which is much more treatable if caught early from a smear test.
Zoe shared a 43-minute video on Youtube and a shorted 13 minute version on her IGTV where she breaks down all the most asked questions, common anxieties and misconceptions about having a pap smear test, and shares her own experience of having one on camera too.
She timed the actual test and it only too 48 seconds!
Zoe explains that she thought filming her experience might help other women feel reassured before attending their first test and help them understand what actually happens during one.
And it’s really not scary at all!
And in the Q&A with Nurse Jenny, Zoe runs through some of the most asked questions that she received from her followers on Instagram.
Jenny answers them all and explains what actually happens during a pap smear test.
Then Zoe brings the conversation to her office and has an honest chat with her female co-workers about the importance of getting a smear test.
I love that Zoe is doing this because she has such an impressionable audience on YouTube and as she mentioned in the beginning of her vlog, this isn’t usually something anyone learns about in school, but it’s so important.
And the commenters on the video agree.
Fans are literally flooding the comment section with praise for Zoe.
One person wrote quote, “I applaud you Zoe for doing this! I think every girl needs to know exactly what happens during a pap smear.”
And another said quote, “The biggest well done to Zoe Sugg for using her platform for important topics such as this, amazing and thank you.”
And there are hundreds and hundreds more just like that.
But not only is Zoe using her platform to educate her fans, she is actually donating all the money she makes from this video.
She wrote in the description quote, “I will also be donating the money raised from Adsense on this video to Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust!” and she included the link to make an individual donation.
But I want to know what you think.
