She's in photos with Kim and Kanye, she poses holding awards with Taylor Swift, she has a prom photo with Jaden Smith, she's all smiles with Miley Cyrus, and the list goes on and on. So who exactly is this girl, and why is she close to so many A-list celebrities? The answer is not what you might expect.

Dara Phung is just your typical 17 year old, except she's seen hanging out with the most popular celebrities around. Name a celebrity, and you can find him or her posing with Dara in a photo. You can see for yourself on her Instagram accounts. The proof is in the pudding — the photos with Drake, Kylie Jenner and Taylor Swift are all there. So what's the deal? Who is she and what exactly is going on?

Well, it seems that all Dara is doing is having some fun, and by fun, I mean photo editing fun. Every single photo she has with the superstars are doctored, all done as a hobby. “I use my phone for all my editing. I don’t use my computer at all and I actually don’t use Photoshop either. I use a combination of apps like PicsArt, Enlight and Instagram to edit my photos," she said. Apparently, it takes her all but ten minutes to hang out with the Kardashians. She has two Instagram accounts, one for the editing and one for shots from her daily life. It looks like she makes music, too, so she definitely likes being creative. In reference to all the attention her celebrity photos have been getting, Dara responded with, "Tbh, my real life is more glamorous!" 

Seems like Dara knows how to have fun.
