YouTube stars will interview Obama at the White House next week

Just a few days after President Barack Obama gives his penultimate State of the Union address he’ll be taking to the web to answer questions from a trio of big-time YouTube stars. Bethany Mota, GloZell, and Hank Green will sit down with the President in the White House to ask him questions about the issues that matter most to their audience — mainly tech-savvy millenials. While the three will certainly have their own questions, a good portion of the queries will come directly from you, the American people. You can submit questions via the usual social channels using the #YouTubeAsksObama hashtag.

If you’re over 25, you might not be very familiar with the three lucky YouTubers getting a chance to sit down with the leader of the free world. Bethany Mota is a 19-year-old fashion vlogger with eight million passionate followers who have led her to being one of personalities frequently featured on those YouTube commercials you keep seeing. GloZell on the other hand is a comedian who describes herself as the “queen of YouTube.” And lastly is Hank Green, one of the Vlog Brothers and host of several Crash Course lessons on science.

The State of the Union begins Tuesday, January 20th at 9 PM ET. And the trio of YouTubers will follow up with an interview on Thursday January 22nd.
