Here's What It Actually Takes to Be a Nickelodeon Star, According to Nickelodeon Stars

Growing up in the '90s, I always wanted to be a Nickelodeon star. Real kids like me were making people laugh on All That and trying to win both Toys "R" Us Geoffrey Dollars and Nintendo 64s on Figure It Out — and I wanted to be a part of it. Alas, that dream died like Nickelodeon Studios in Florida.

Corey Fogelmanis Is Stepping into a New Era of His Career, Post Girl Meets World

Fans of Corey Fogelmanis grew up watching him as the adorkable Farkle Minkus on Girl Meets World, the spin-off of Boy Meets World. But since the Disney Channel series ended two years ago, Corey expanded his acting chops. And he's damn good at it. In May 2019, Corey starred alongside Oscar winner Octavia Spencer in the horror film Ma, a project that was a major contrast from the fun Disney show that turned him into a household name.

About

Stacey Grant

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."

While I can't sum up my life better than Holden Caulfield can, I will tell you I'm currently the Snapchat Editor for Seventeen's Discover channel, overseeing our design and animation team. I also write articles for the company's website and help with video shoots.

I've been an entertainment writer and reporter for MTV News, Seventeen, BuzzFeed, TV Guide, POPSUGAR, HTZ Apps, and Lone Star Film Society. I also regularly wrote for MTV's Snapchat Discover channel.

Moreover, I've interviewed myriad of celebs via in-person, phone, and email, and have maintained numerous connections with both talent and publicists. I've also had training with different content management systems, social media, GIF making, and Photoshop.

I'm the author of "Hey Arnold! Guide to Relationships" from DK Publishing, in a partnership with Nickelodeon. The humor book was published October 2018, and I signed copies of it at New York Comic Con.

If you can handle more fun facts, I worked at Time Inc. as a digital media intern, coordinating with several of the brands to produce content for the company's then-partnership with the app Trivia Crack.
