Kelly started out her Youtube channel in 2018, which means she managed to juggle both vlogging and college well!

Kelly is known as the "Peanut Butter Queen."

Kelly's love for peanut butter is a well-known fact among her avid watchers. A simple skim through her channel would tell you as much; whether it's fried chicken, popcorn, cereal, or toast that she's eating, you can trust her to have her go-to peanut butter jar on the side where she can always reach for a spoonful or two to complement whatever she's having!

Kelly is an aspiring actress.

One of Kelly's lifelong dreams is to become an actress. Before dabbling into the world of Youtube, Kelly did theater where she further developed her knack for acting. Realizing that she could combine two of the things she loves — eating and acting — Kelly finally decided to start vlogging. This is how her Youtube channel KellyChews came to be.

At the rate Kelly Chews is going, we would not be surprised to see more of her pretty and gorgeous face on our tv screens soon!
