2. Her Massachusetts Accent

She often refers to herself as a "Mass-hole," in part to her thick Massachusetts accent. Mikayla's voice is honestly angelic to our ears, and the second we watch a video of hers, we already know we're going to swipe away with a huge smile on our faces. She just has that effect! Not to mention the funny way certain words come off. Nars sounds more like "Nahhs," and we love it.
