Wengie starts the video by explaining that she is going to try to draw her life on the whiteboard. She begins by telling her birthday of January 9th, 1986. She draws herself as a baby, and says that she was told she was impossible to feed, and would take a spoonful of rice and suck on it for hours. She then draws her parents as she is saying that they were worried she would be malnourished. Her parents left for Australia, and she was raised by a nanny until she was four. When she went to Australia, she hadn’t seen her parents for a while, so she didn’t remember who they were, and she was scared of them, but her grandfather was there to help her get comfortable with them. She says that her parents were poor, and she had many DIY toys. She learns that she’s a introvert, and through high school tries to break out of her shell. The internet came out while she was in high school, and she would chat, and ended up making her own website. Her mother became pregnant with a little boy while Wengie was still in high school, so she was happy to be getting a little brother. She goes on to say that she always thought she would be a designer, and she ended up getting a scholarship. She developed a very strong work ethic and moved out at 24. She ended up becoming a social media consultant, and that quickly grew. She had to be available 24 hours a day, and eventually started her own blog. On February 11, 2013 she officially launched her blog on YouTube. She says she had no social life, and ended up on national TV as a hoarder and had to have people come in and clean out her place. she lost an important relationship but learned from it, and is now engaged to a man named Max, and has become very successful.
