Rikki Poynter is a YouTuber, writer, streamer, and public speaker.
She started her YouTube career in July 2010 being a makeup vlogger until her shift to more educational and lifestyle content in late 2013.
She is known for her video, “Shit Hearing People Say,” which now has over 530,000 views, as well as her efforts for proper closed captioning on YouTube. In September 2016, she launched a closed captioning campaign called #NoMoreCRAPtions in hopes to get a large group of people promoting captions at the same time. The campaign is still ongoing today.
On YouTube, in writing, and at public speaking, Rikki covers a variety of topics including disability (deafness, chronic pain, and fatigue), mental health, child abuse, and more.
