Ryan Trahan is an American YouTuber who rose to the spotlight after his 30-Day challenge. In the challenge, the Youtuber crossed America, from Los Angeles to North Carolina, with just a penny in his pocket. Moreover, the journey was to offer the penny to the YouTube giant, MrBeast.

Animal Crossing fan puts his creativity to work

Animal Crossing content creator Raven, better known by her internet alias froggycrossing, took on a challenge inspired by Trahan’s. So, she would build a village from scratch in 30 days. But like Ryan with just a penny in his pocket, Raven also had strict rules for her challenge.

The first rule was that she couldn’t use Nintendo Switch Online and the game’s DLCs. She would have to finish the village within 30 days in real-time. Moreover, she needs to get ten villagers on her island with their own yards. Also, she has to upgrade each building completely. Raven also has to set up five additional builds. The only advantage she would have is access to time travel.

So far, Raven has completed six days of the challenge, and she’s showcasing some great progress. She started the challenge by setting up plots for her in-game character and two starter villagers. She then cleaned up the island and sold them to Tom Nook to bag some bells, the in-game currency.

Then she got herself equipment to catch bugs and insects. In her early gameplay, Raven is trying to get as many money shells as she can and clean up the island. Although in this journey, the biggest dilemma for Raven was getting her favorite villager and getting three stars.
