In this “Drawn my life” video by Wengie, she accounts her life from a small child to the ultra-popular Youtube vlogger she has transformed into today.
Wengie was born in China on January 9th, 1986. Her parents relocated to Melbourne Australia when she was very young. Her grandparents raised her in China until she was 4 years old. She then flew to Melbourne to start life in Australia with her parents. Wengie remembers not recognizing her parents after 4 years and wanting to fly back to China with her grandfather.
She learned that her parents were very poor and saved as much money as they could. Once they landed better job, they relocated to Sydney. Wengie recalls being extremely shy in school and found it difficult to make friends. By the time she got to highschool, she focused on growing her social life.
Her mother gave birth to her younger brother Jim during her last year of high school.
Wengie’s parents encouraged her to go to college for accounting and to apply for a scholarship. Wengie did just that. However, once she landed an accounting job after school, her boss expressed how poor her work performance was. Wengie stated that her heart was never in the job and that she could not artistically express herself. She made the bold decision to quit her job and accounting career.
She eventually got hired on with a company as a social media consultant and absolutely loved it. It inspired her to launch her own blog for fashion and beauty. She officially launched her own Youtube channel on February 11th, 2015 and quickly gained over a million followers. She dedicated so much of her time to growing her social media following, she had little time for anything else.
Her home eventually transformed into a Youtube studio and she was even featured on a a hoarding show in national television.
Wengie states that her followers and fan base give her the motivation to keep going. She got engaged to her boyfriend in 2015. Wengie continues to post videos and content of what she loves the most and her followers continue to grow.
