Life and career

Russett began broadcasting on YouTube during her early teens, when she created a music video as part of a contest to meet Justin Bieber, [8] which ended up in his movie Never Say Never.

She attended a private Catholic high school until her junior year, at which point she moved to California after signing a contract with Fullscreen and began attending an online school.[9] Russett left the program during her final year, as she felt that "everybody learns differently and I don’t learn by reading and writing a report. I need to be doing something to learn.”[9]

In 2013 Russett began designing her own clothing line, FLAWD Clothing.[10]

In 2014 worked as a radio DJ in Fort Wayne, Indiana​.[11]

She eventually began posting music videos of popular songs and conversations on her YouTube channel.[3]

Personal Life

Russett has one sister named Anna and one brother named Anthony. [12] She was in a relationship with fellow YouTube star Kian Lawley[13], but the couple broke up in mid-2014.
