Welcome to Tube Chum’s Channel Spotlight, where our team of YouTube fanatics shine a light on some of the video-sharing website’s rising stars. Today, we’re taking a closer look at relationship and beauty guru, Theodora Lee.
Meet Theodora Lee
Offering up videos covering a wide range of topics from the fun and energetic How To Survive School to the inspiring I feel Pretty, Theodora Lee is fast making a name for herself on YouTube and for good reason.
Whilst Theodora may be related to popular YouTuber Caspar Lee, this talented entertainer has plenty of ideas of her own, offering advice to younger viewers on taboo subjects that many other uploader’s would shy away from.
“I’m the queen of awkward topics!”
Theodora told Tube Chum: “I’m the queen of awkward topics. I make coming-of-age, chatty videos that aim to help young adults through the trials and tribulations of teenage-hood and beyond!”
Our Favourite Video
Picking out Theodora’s ‘best’ upload was tough, but we’ve gone for the eye-opening SEXUAL ASSAULT – My Experience.
The topic of this video is particularly sensitive, but Theodora manages to cover the issue in an informative, insightful and passionate manner, offering viewers advice on how to keep themselves safe.
Speaking out to her audience, Theodora admitted: “I’ve been in situations in my life before where I’ve also gone down that road where I’ve been infatuated with someone and that person has used that kind of naive infatuation to make me do things”.
Whilst Theodora has posted her fair share of fun challenge videos and Q&As, this upload is a breath of fresh air that really highlights another, more sensitive side to the YouTuber. It makes for powerful viewing and that’s why we’ve chosen to feature it.
We caught up with Theodora to ask her about why she first started uploading to YouTube and her plans for the future of her channel.
Speaking about her past videos, the YouTuber told Tube Chum that she’s proud of all of her past uploads, yet one in particular stands out.
“The reaction to I Feel Pretty was unbelievable”.
Theodora’s I Feel Pretty video is different to the rest, the YouTuber told Tube Chum, explaining: “I’m most proud of I Feel Pretty, which had the original title I Feel Ugly. It dealt with self-esteem issues and I wanted it to get a certain amount of likes for me to change the title – and it did!”
“The reaction was unbelievable and I think it helped some people to feel more comfortable in their own skin”.
Inspiring: Theodora’s I Feel Pretty video has over 50,000 views.
Looking ahead, Theodora added: “[I’m planning] more thorough subjects geared to create discussion, regular Q&As and maybe some reflections of where I’m at currently in my life”.

Block: Gosh! That’s not easy to name. Let’s just say any channel that’s offensive.
