She’s new to YouTube, but self-proclaimed introvert Nicole is already making waves. Launching her channel, Arch and Tori G, back in April as a way of documenting lasting memories for her family, Nicole quickly discovered that feeling awkward in front of the camera was just one of the challenges she was about to face.
