JiDion’s Rise To Stardom
JiDion grew up in Houston, Texas, and was not loved by others as much as he is now.
During his school days, he struggled to make friends and found himself trying to align with different groups.
JiDion was not invited to parties and would find himself watching anime, reading books, and making funny videos. His main goal was to make somebody laugh with his videos.
With his funny videos, he had already started gaining popularity among the netizens. He rose to stardom on YouTube after he started streaming videos of him playing Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto.
Later, he started to do reaction and commentary videos to viral internet content. His videos on YouTube are all aimed at giving happiness to the viewers and putting on a smile.
His journey to stardom was not smooth; at some point, he even thought of quitting YouTube. He was not generating as much revenue to make his living, and he started working at Lowe’s.
After encountering his fans at his workplace, he felt defeated as some of his fans assumed he was working on his videos.
JiDion quit his job at Lowa’s and started serving at Uber Eats. Working for Uber, he got more time to himself and was able to prepare content and perfect his craft.
He started putting more effort into his content, and the rest is history; he has established himself as one of the biggest personalities on the internet.
