Rise to Fame

Her Cosplay got Azzy a lot of attention worldwide and landed her an appearance on a popular YouTube channel. At this interview she got offered a full time job as the co host of “Before They Were Famous”, a popular celebrity biography channel.

Not having enough time between studying to become a doctor, traveling the world for her cosplay and hosting on “Before They Were Famous”, Azzy would post irregularly on her own channel.

This blunder outraged FaZe Jevs fans and in turn Azzy received her fair share of backlash from the video. She then in turn posted an apology video on her personal channel, to which Faze Jev reacted to.
His reaction was so positive that this propelled Azzy into YouTube fame and jumpstarted her YouTube career. After this moment, Azzy began to post regularly on the platform and made YouTube her full time job.
