Asian American Teen Makes $5,000 Selling Slime to Save for College

A 13-year-old girl from Virginia has been entertaining a legion of followers with slime-making, a relatively young social media trend among creatives, hobbyists and those looking for ASMR triggers.

Kaitlinh Nguyen, who calls herself a “slimer,” has made at least $5,000 by selling homemade slimes on Etsy and her own online shop, Sherbete.

“The money from Etsy my parents want me to save for college, but I kind of just want to spend it on a stand mixer to mix my slime so it’s a lot faster,” she told 60 Second Docs.

“A lot of people like my slime. They say it’s different and really out there,” she said. “I don’t know why people are buying it but I guess it’s really addicting to poke and make sounds.”
