The Wealth of Reina Scully
How rich is Reina Scully? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $700,000, earned largely through a successful career on YouTube. Her online fame has led her to numerous opportunities, and her other lines of work have also contributed to the rise of her wealth. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her net worth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and The X-Files
Very little is known about Reina’s family and her childhood. Despite her online fame, she has not shared many details about her life outside of YouTube. While she was born in Japan, she only spent three years there before her family decided to move to the United States.
Growing up in the US, she quickly became accustomed to the culture of the country being exposed there at a young age. She gained a strong interest and love for the television show “The X-Files”, which revolves around two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents as they investigate unsolved cases involving the paranormal called X-Files. The show develops the characters as the seasons progresses, and became a big hit, gaining a huge number of positive reviews. It is considered a cult series, with both lead actors gaining multiple awards in the process. Reina’s favorite character in the show is agent Dana Scully, played by Gillian Anderson. She would later adopt the last name Scully for her own online name.
YouTube and SourceFed
In 2010, Scully began her foray into the online world when she created her Twitter account, leading her to eventually create an account on YouTube the following year. She started her account as a means to progress her passion for her origin Japan, as well as to showcase some of her interests including gaming and anime. Owned by Google, YouTube is considered as one of the most popular websites in the world; it allows users to create and/or upload their own video content which they can then share with others.
Other users can rate, view, comment on videos, and subscribe to channels they like. Over the years, the website has become one of the main sources of video content including music videos, documentaries, movie trailers, video blogs (vlogs), and live streams. As she continued to build her presence on YouTube, she was then invited to work for the channel SourceFed, which she accepted, which is focused on popular culture, technology, and news. It was created in 2012 as a part of the YouTube $100 million original channel initiative, and gained numerous awards during its run before it was eventually cancelled in 2017, leading to many of its shows ending.
Reina was responsible for helping SourceFed win a 2014 Streamy Award for News and Current Events. While working with the company, she continued to manage her own channel, and then refocused all of her efforts there when SourceFed closed down. She did videos on teaching her viewers how to speak Japanese, and also showcased some of her translating work. She did playthroughs of video games too, and also reviewed anime content.
Her online fame has led her to collaborate with other popular YouTube personalities, such as The Anime Man and Steven Suptic, and she appeared in the podcast entitled “Boys Only Club”. Some of her most popular videos include her reaction videos to what happened at SourceFed and why she left. She also gained a lot of notice when she reacted against YouTuber Logan Paul’s disrespectful actions while in Japan. Other popular videos she has are related to the Japanese culture. She has done videos on what it like to voice anime and has also given a tour of a modern Japanese home, and she does translation work outside of YouTube.
