I recently sat down with Malvina and Mila Borgelt (ages 7 and 5, respectively) to ask them all about their YouTube channels: Malvina Reviews and Milania Reviews. The sisters have been attending Stagelight Performing Arts since 2014! During this interview, I learned that Mila’s full name was Milania (how cute), and I was so impressed by both girls’ demeanor and thoughtful responses to my questions. Check out their channels and subscribe after you read this super sweet interview:
Stagelight Performing Arts (SPA): Malvina and Milania, tell me a little about your YouTube channels.
Malvina: We basically call our channels “Malvina Reviews” and “Milania Reviews.” The first time I wanted to do a YouTube was when I wanted to review a Shopkins.
SPA: Shopkins was your first review? How did you already know about reviews or what they were?
Malvina: When I was little, I used to watch channels of kids reviewing [toys]. So my dad got an idea. He said, “Let’s create a new channel.” Later on, my sister wanted to create her own channel since I had a channel.
Mila: My first one was a big park review. It was a blue park, and it was really tall.
Malvina: It’s basically a space ship park.
SPA: So, does Malvina only review toys and Mila only review parks?
Malvina: Not all the time. We both review parks and toys.
SPA: Who comes up with the ideas? Who decides what you’re going to review?
Mila: Both of us. Sometimes I come up with stuff, and sometimes Malvi comes up with stuff.
Malvina: Like, whenever we get a toy for Christmas, we won’t open it up. We want to put it on YouTube and review it.
SPA: That’s a lot of self-control! That’s amazing. What is your favorite part about having a YouTube channel?
Malvina: Well, my favorite part about having a YouTube channel is sharing the things I do on it and telling about it. It’s just great that I can actually express myself to everybosy on YouTube that would watch.
Mila: Because you just get to review stuff you like, review toys and go to parks to review.
Malvina: It’s pretty much just a fun thing, because if we go to a park and review it, it’s fun because we get to enjoy the fun after it.
SPA: How do you feel about yourself after you’re all done filming and you see yourself in your episode?
Malvina: I feel proud that I have been speaking the whole time, and messed up just a few times.
Mila: I feel like I did a great job, and I just want to do it again.
SPA: What episode has been your favorite ever to do?
Malvina: I don’t have a favorite episode, but there is an episode that we may do… it’s a chocolate egg surprise, and I think it’ll be my number one favorite that I’ve reviewed in my life.
SPA: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Malvina: I want to be a veterinarian because I want to visit animals and see the cats.
Mila: A veterinarian.
Thank you, Malvina and Mila, for sitting down and chatting with me about your YouTube channel! I can’t wait to watch your continued success and growth as Stagelighters. #weliveonstage
