Meghan Channing Camarena (born July 17, 1987), known professionally as Strawburry17, is a YouTuber, blogger, comedian, gamer, singer/songwriter and internet personality. Meghan started off making random videos and music videos with her younger brother David (dayviideo) in 2009. Her most viewed video is a music video to "Vanilla Twillight" by Owl City, with approximately 4,300,000 views.
After Meghan posted her music video of "I'm A Gummy Bear", large music labels such as Sony, Universal, Atlantic, and Warner approached her to help promote her music.
Meghan started her channel LifeBurry to post daily blogs in 2010. She previously worked for Teen.com alongside Joey Graceffa.
Meghan is known for calling her fans "Burries". Like many other YouTubers, Meghan is also well-known for her intro and outro. On her main channel, Strawburry17, she starts every video with a title screen that says the title of the video. On her vlogging channel, LifeBurry, she starts every video with "Good morning Burries, it's _____!" and she says the time of day. Normally, it is not morning. (E.g. "Good morning Burries, it's not morning!" On both channels, Meghan ends her videos by yelling "bye" and holding up a peace sign. However, she says it as "Bai!" Very often, David will ruin the outro by yelling "Bai!" in a higher pitch than Meghan.
Meghan also tweeted that she and YouTuber Jimmy Wong (Jimmy Wong), broke up after two years of being in an relationship. Meghan had updated everyone in her "Aholaaa!" vlog when she and Jimmy were in Hawaii together.

The Amazing Race 24
Although it have been speculated since mid October that Joey & Meghan would be racing for a second time, It was official announced on January 27, 2014 that they would indeed be racing again. In the first leg they started a t UCLA in Los Angeles, CA. in their first challenge they had to shearch through several of UCLA Bruin Marching Band members with a Chinese symbol on their Shako, which was displayed on the band conductors' Shako. Once they brought the correct band member with the correct symbol they were given tickets to their next destination which was them going to Guangzhou, China. In Guangzhou, teams went to its wedding boutique district on Jiangnan Avenue North, and searched for one of three boutiques that had their next clue. Each store had a limited number of clues, forcing teams to travel to the others if they ran out. Joey did the first Road Block of this season which was to dress in a special costume and while suspended 300 feet (91 m) in the air by wires from the stadium's towers, perform 5 aerial somersaults. Once complete, the wiremaster would award them their next clue. Joey & Meghan barley escaped elimination and came in 10th place for that leg.
At the start of the second leg, due to some teams receving time credit due to prouction difficulties, Joey and Meghan started the leg in 8th place instead of their oginial starting place which was 10th. When they left they were told that they had to go to the Chen Clan Academy, where they had to watch a demonstration of martial arts students. At the end the "master" would approch the teams and stamp their next clue on their forehead. Meghan did the roadblock for this leg which was to assemble a child's motorized car from a provided kit. Once the car was finished, the judge would give them their next clue. Once given their next clue, teams had to donate the car they just built to The Guangzhou Children's Activity Center, where they would recieve their next clue. In the detour Joey & Meghan had a choice to either play a game of jianzi (a game similar to hackeysack but you use a shuttlecock instead of a ball) and once the teammates succesfully volleyed the shuttlecock 10 combined times they would recieve their next clue. The second option was to get a traditional involving cupping therapy. Joey & Meghan chose to do the game of jianzi. At the end they came in 9th place, again barley escaping elimination
They were eliminated in leg 3 after having trouble trying to find a taxi.
