"This is the place to talk about things that are important and that matter. It doesn't mean that there isn't also silly content, that there are ways for me to express myself personally, but there will also be deep conversations, anti-racist rhetoric, inclusive content,” Larson said.

Larson also revealed she is an introvert and suffers from social anxiety, adding Captain Marvel helped her to speak out amd tell her story.

"For me, my baseline has been, I'm an introvert with asthma. Like, that's been my story for myself...I'm introverted, I'm scared, I have social anxiety. And though, in particular, playing Captain Marvel, that like kind of wiped clean those titles I had for myself and made me go, 'Woah, I'm not really that anymore.'"

The video titled So I made a decision..., featured short interview clips with a number of YouTube stars including Sean Evans, Swoozie, Lilly Singh, Connor Franta, and Michelle Khare, teaching the Oscar-winning actor to use the platform.

The 30-year-old actor said she is feeling “nervous” about joining YouTube.

"I think that we're on a train here and we're going," she added.
