Career: This is how Pewdiepie became successful
pewdiepie (civil Felix rvid Ulf Kjellberg) was born on October 24, 1989 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He has been a passionate gamer since childhood. He was interested in art from a young age.
After graduating from high school, he began studying industrial economics. Shortly after the start of the semester, however, Felix realized that it wasn’t the right thing for him and dropped out. From that point on, he decided to only focus on things that make him happy. He started recording and posting gameplay videos of himself for YouTube.
Because he initially did not earn any money with it, he worked part-time at a hot dog stand and also sold digital Photoshop assets to make ends meet. Pewdiepie still often talks about the fact that back then there was a very difficult time was for him. However, considering his current success, this was probably 100% the right decision on his part.
After just six months on YouTube, in July 2012, he reached 500,000 subscriberswho are interested in the fictional character “Pewdiepie”. A milestone that is no longer conceivable in this short period of time.
Since then, Felix has only climbed steeply. In 2017, he received a massive shitstorm that got coverage around the world over an anti-Semitic statement in one of his videos (Note: Felix himself is Jewish). He is currently one of the most successful Youtubers of all time and only recently crossed the magic line of 100,000,000 subscribers on Youtube. (real-time statistics)
