Videos by other creators on the trip are what Shawtysin says alerted her to the fact that she had one of the smallest, if not the smallest, room out of the group. When addressing the confusion, she said, “I want to express how thankful I am to be invited on such a big brand trip and be acknowledged as a creator. Coming from a South Asian community, a lot of the times we’re just looked over.”
Shawtysin went on to acknowledge that expressing disappointment over room size may seem like a “first world problem,” but that her issue is deeper.
“This may not make sense to most of you, but just please hear me out,” she said. “I’m a Brown, minority creator… and a lot of the times I get the short end of the stick. Whether it’s getting paid less for the same advertisement or not getting paid at all.”
