What Happened When Young People Were Asked To Confess Their Deepest Fears

Last year, YouTuber Jack Harries asked his viewers what they feared. This week, those fears finally came to light.

After receiving more than 2,500 submissions from people in 20 countries, Jack compiled the submissions in a video. Common fears such as spiders and heights make up the beginning before the participants open up about more serious issues like depression, anxiety and loneliness.

This isn’t the first time Jack has chosen to use his YouTube fame as a platform to discuss important topics. In a video about mental health, he discusses how being vocal about mental illness can help end the stigma surrounding it.

Similarly, his new video ends with the participants explaining the importance of owning up to their fears. One young girl pointed out what the world would be like without them.

“If we didn’t have struggles, we’d all be pretty boring people.”
