Her friend Shane Dawson convinced Shanna to start making videos in late summer 2012. She had an old channel where she placed things from her auditions. She appears in many of Shane Dawson's videos and he gave a shout-out to her channel one day, before she had made any videos, and within 48 hours she had over 50,000 subscribers, without a video.
