Who am i?

I am a 28 year old IT student (bachelor student with average marks) in Europe. I am a beginner programmer with acceptable English and java skills. I want to start a programming channel in English! oh, boy...

What are my goals?
My short term goal is to upload 1-2 videos a month. In those short videos i will talk about algorithms and interview questions. I am actually bad at those topics, but i hope to improve my English and programming skills while making the videos. You can only learn and understand something, if you teach it to other people (Feynman technique).
Having a tech YouTube channel might give me a chance to get an internship and a full time position after graduation.

My long term goal is to build an online audience and if there is a need for an online course in a programming language that my be trending in the future, then i will do it.

But first, i want to grow my channel and get 50 Subscribers before December 2020!

Current Situation:
I already started my YouTube Channel back in May 2019 and uploaded three Videos so far. Then i stopped thanks to my excuses.

My thoughts
I feel like, i am thinking too much about growing a YouTube channel and getting subscribers, instead of asking myself, if i am providing value. I don't think the first videos are going to help anyone. But i would rather fail and pivot instead of never trying it! I am open to input, ideas and constructive criticism. Thank you for reading!

I bet you can always help someone. Maybe you should define first who you are going help. And then figure out which kind of videos/techniques would be useful for them. Then you'll have a more clear path to follow along with the motivation you need.
