Growing up with cars-
Her father started drag racing at a young age and at a very young age, Becky used to accompany her father to his drag races.
Prior to drag racing, her father used to race bangers and stock cars.
Becky grew up in the Santa Pod Raceway in England watching drag races.
She also grew up watching American Graffiti and Christine and thanks to all these, she fell in love with cars at a young age.
Becky along with her father used to visit several race tracks to watch motor racing.
Also, car racing has been her family sport and it has been a generational thing and so, she and her brother developed a passion for it.
From go-karting to Junior Dragster-
At 8, Becky started go-karting and her father was very supportive of her.
She loved go-karting and also won a few novice trophies in go-karting (Check go-karts).
Unfortunately, Becky suffered a bad accident while go-karting and got injured.
So, she quit go-karting and at 11, she moved to Junior Dragster.
Later, Becky got involved with modified cars and started racing a dragster in the Santa Pod Raceway.
Much like her father, she too started modifying cars.
Becky intended to move from junior racing to senior racing but as senior track racing was very expensive, her father suggested she take a break from racing and complete her graduation.
So, she joined Oxford Brookes University to study for a three-year business and economics degree.
Later, Becky planned to move to America to do commercial property leasing but as she couldn’t get the visa, she moved to London at 23 and secured a job in a PR agency.
Even though she took a break from racing, her love for cars didn’t die.
At 18, Becky worked at a streetwear shop.
After graduating, she moved to London and secured a job in fashion PR.
Even though Becky hated her job at the PR agency, she loved the creativity that involved in doing brand activations.
While working here, she observed that while the circulation of publications was decreasing, the role of influencers was increasing and they were earning handsomely.
And Becky observed that there weren’t many female influencers in the automotive space.
At 18, Becky alias Queen B started posting photos of her visiting car shows onto her Instagram account.
Later, she started posting the photos of her Volkswagen Golf Mk4.
During that time, Becky was working in a streetwear shop and observed that people in the shop were shooting beautiful images and this motivated her to shoot pictures of herself and her car and post it on Instagram.
Starting her YouTube channel-
At 21, in 2014, Becky purchased her first classic car, a 1983 BMW E21 and she started posting this car on Instagram and during that time, she was growing organically on Instagram and this growth motivated her to start a YouTube channel.
