    When GloZell's around, you're never sure what to expect!

    Check her out here:

    But on this episode of Pretty Unfiltered, the YouTube sensation and comedian shows off her softer side.

    GloZell is beloved by her legions of fans for her crazy humor and her outspoken attitude, but instead of an insane challenge — we saved that for her channel — the new author and soon-to-be mommy discussed what it was like being different from her peers.

    Specifically, what it was like being the only black child in her class.

    "I had to define beauty on my own terms," GloZell said.

    "My first day of kindergarten, I was like, 'Something's wrong with this kid, he has no color.' And as the other kids come in I'm like, 'Wait a minute, I'm the one that's different,'" she said.

    "You can go through a part where you don't like yourself because you want to be like everybody else, but when you realize that doesn't work anyway, you might as well enjoy what you got and make it work for you!" Check out everything else GloZell had to say about empowerment, finding confidence in herself, and shaping her own standard of beauty, and check out our collaboration about sunburn remedies on her channel.

    (It gets pre-tty messy!) And if you'd like to meet GloZell, you can — she's going on tour to promote her new book, Is You Okay? (HarperCollins).
