Who is Ashley Matheson?
Canadian social media star, YouTuber and singer Ashley Matheson – aka Smashedely – was born under the zodiac sign Leo on 24 July 2001, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She’s quite popular for her self-titled YouTube channel, which she launched back on 13 March 2014 and which is today subscribed to by more than 20,000 people, while all of Ashley’s 235 videos combined have been watched nearly a million times; she mostly uploads videos which feature her playing video games, taking on some of the most popular internet challenges, and talking about her everyday life.
Education and early life
Ashley was raised in Ottawa alongside her sister Hannah Matheson, by their mother Deanna and father Ron Matheson; not many details have been disclosed about Ashley’s family because she respects their privacy, but it’s believed that her father’s an architect and her mother a nurse.
Ashley studied at Sacred Heart Catholic High School and struggled with her mental health as a teenager because she was bullied at school; she found comfort in painting and books, and occasionally volunteered at the school’s library. Ashley was into a number of other activities during her teenage years, as she loved to play video games with her cousins, including “Defense of the Ancients” (DOTA), “Apex Legends” and “Fortnite: Battle Royale”.
She matriculated in 2019 and then enrolled at Algonquin College, from which she’s graduated just recently in June 2023; Ashley was passionate about a couple of activities during her time at Algonquin as she was a member of the college’s drama club, took dance lessons and learned to play the guitar.
As she’d already built a fanbase for herself on the internet, Ashley chose to pursue a career on social media networks rather than to work in her field of study (which remains undisclosed); she’s also today working as a model and is signed to a number of agencies, including Montage Models, Elite Model Management Toronto and Models International Management.
