Who is ASMRrequests?

Ally Maque was born on 9 July 1990, in the United States of America, and is a YouTube personality, best known for her channel which is focused on delivering autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos of various kinds. Under her adopted professional name, she has been active on the website since 2012, which is one of the most well-known channels featuring these types of videos.

The Riches of ASMRrequests

How rich is ASMRrequests? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $400,000, earned through a successful career on YouTube. Her online fame has led her to numerous opportunities, as she also has other projects apart from her channel. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and ASMR

Very little is known about ASMRrequests’ life before her rise to fame online, as she’s revealed little about her family, childhood, and education. Sometime during her adulthood, she became highly interested in ASMR, and how to be able to deliver the same type of response. ASMR is characterized by a static or tingling sensation felt on the skin, which usually begins on the scalp and moves down to the upper spine. The sensation has been compared to auditory-tactile synesthesia.

ASMRrequests

One of the reasons why ASMR has become popular is due to the subjective feeling of low grade euphoria. The tingling sensation can possibly emit a combination of positive feelings due to the stimuli. ASMR usually happens through auditory or visual cues though there have been instances when it can be triggered through deliberate attention control. Her interest in the field eventually led her to discover the platform YouTube, which can be used to trigger ASMR through auditory or visual cues done through video form.

YouTube Channel

YouTube is one of the most popular video platforms in the world and is one of the largest sources of video content. Videos such as live streams, movie trailers, educational videos, video clips, documentaries, music videos, and many more can be viewed in the website. It has helped increase the fame and income of numerous content creators thanks to its popularity as well as through the Google AdSense program which monetizes videos based on the number of viewers and interactions the video has. As of 2017, over 400 hours of content are uploaded to the website each minute.

ASMRrequests launched her channel in 2012 with the video entitled “Personal Story Time – How I Developed ASMR”, which gave some background to her channel and her interests. She then produced various types of ASMR content which involves soft speaking, light auditory cues such as tapping or scratching, and many more. She also started to earn fame thanks to the involvement of role playing sessions in the videos, in which she often portrayed a different character; she has played an esthetician, a travel agent, a make-up artist, and many more. Some of her most popular videos have attracted over two million views.

Recent Endeavors and Other Projects

ASMRrequests’ channel has grown to have over 500,000 subscribers, and she uploads on a semi regular basis, often numerous videos within a month. She is known to take breaks from her channel from time to time, but returns to making videos after a month or so. Aside from ASMR, she also focuses on other interests apart from her channel. She is a self-proclaimed virtual reality enthusiast, and even started her own VR video show called “VirtuAlly”, which covers highlights in the world of VR.

According to her, some of her favorite VR experiences include the demo of popular Ghibli studios animations, which include “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Spirited Away”. She also enjoyed the first person game called “Windlands VR”. As a part of her virtual reality endeavors, she launched the company called PixelWhipt to create a network of content creators focused on virtual reality content. However, in 2016 her endeavors in the virtual reality realm stopped, and her website is no longer active. Many have stated that the project was unsuccessful due to virtual reality still being in the early stages of development, and as such there aren’t a lot of options yet in the genre.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, not much is known in terms of any of ASMRrequests’ romantic relationships. She has not talked about this aspect of her life, nor has she been seen publicly with a husband or boyfriend. She prefers to keep this topic away from the spotlight, and reveals very little at all outside of her YouTube work.

Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, she is highly active online through the use of social media networks. She has accounts on major websites such as Instagram, including her asmrrequests account which has over 14,000 followers. She also has a personal Instagram account, which contains a few personal photos and promotions of her live streams on Periscope, however, this account hasn’t been active for several years. She also has a Facebook page, but it hasn’t been active since 2017, but previously posted videos to promote recent and upcoming YouTube videos from that time period. She’s recently putting more efforts towards YouTube, and is usually absent from the channel due to sickness. A lot of her followers are very supportive of her, and want her to prioritize getting healthy over providing speedy content.
