In under ten minutes, Wengie reveals all, gulp! According to fans, it’s long overdue, so she conquers the intimidation factor of smearing her whole life on a white board to be broadcast at
Wengie Draw My Life begins with a manipulative toddler who only eats ice cream and plays with clouds, who has Grandpa right where she wants him.
Displaced from China where she’s been living with Nanny and Grands, she arrives in Melbourne, a kid who doesn’t even know her own parents. In fact, she runs screaming when they first meet. Thankfully Grandfather turns the manipulation on her with a pack of Smarties.
She talks about shyness growing up, and how she never talked. She says her not talking was all her teachers could talk about at their parent-teacher conferences year after year.
Even harder to believe, she calls herself a tom boy. She makes her own toys, and is obsessed with robots, anime, Transformers, and Ninja Turtles.
Because her dad tries so hard to socialize her when she is little she develops a complex and over-compensates to make friends in high school. She mentions a crush on a boy she meets in the process.
Dreaming of becoming a fashion designer, she lands an accounting scholarship. That doesn’t work out because it excludes her creativity.
She walks away from four years as a poorly performing accountant to relish nearly overnight success as a social media consultant. Then, she branches out to publish her own fashion and beauty blog.
It gets her noticed in Singapore. She flies over to demonstrate her look. Then, she launches her youtube channel.
Between work, her blog, and the videos she posts, she loses manageability in her home and social life. She confesses the truth of winding up on national TV because her hoarding has become a concern to everyone, but the show cleans up her apartment and gives her a fresh start.
After that, she attributes her ability to continue with all the work that she does to the fans, now over a million, who she calls family, along with her husband, Matt.
