Wengie was born in China and moved to Australia when she was four. She cried when she say her parents because she didn’t remember them. She was a total tomboy growing up and loved cartoons like the Transformers and the Ninja Turtles. She went to school for accounting and found a job, but did not love it so she resigned. She was at a standstill in life, but soon got a job as a social media consultant. Soon after she started a blog and a Youtube channel to help her blog. It became successful, so decided to pursue it fully.
