His fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including collaborative work and sponsorships. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Weston was raised by his parents whom he describes as very supportive, and one of the reasons for his success. He had a happy childhood and was raised alongside a sister in North Carolina. At a young age he became very interested in music, and he started learning to play the drums at the age of eight; he practiced daily and also learned how to sing. His music interests did not stop there as he also endeavored to learn other musical instruments.
He was also inclined to do sports, discovering his talent in swimming, and became involved in competitive swimming, and enjoyed freestyle competitions. In this type of competitions, swimmers only have a few restrictions when it comes to the stroke they use for the race. While any stroke can be used, the competition has been popular for the use of the front crawl which is the fastest swimming stroke and the most commonly used in these types of competitions. Distances for freestyle swimming races range from 50 meters to 1500 meters.
While he was busy with various activities at a young age, Koury also became interested in starting a presence online, and began doing so by broadcasting through the website YouNow. The service allows users to stream their own live video content, or view others streaming, leading them to interact with one another. The website handles over 150,000 broadcasts a day, with many of its users being under the age of 24, usually performing or just chatting with the audience. During the peak of its popularity, it competed with websites such as Meerkat and Periscope, however, in recent months, it has slowly lost popularity due to the rise of websites such as Twitch and Live.
After a few months of consistently broadcasting on YouNow, he had the opportunity to collaborate with other online personalities in an official Meet & Greet event held in Texas. This allowed him to meet with fans, increasing his fame even further, and also led him to various connections, and soon he was collaborating with other online talents. With more possibilities coming his way, he started to look for other avenues to showcase his capabilities.
Instagram and YouTube
Weston created his own Instagram account, and began by posting comedic content which continued to raise his popularity. Coupled with his streams, he was starting to gain more and more exposure, leading to more income. The website is a photo and video sharing service owned by Facebook, which allows its users to share their media with the public or pre-approved followers. One of the reasons for its popularity is due to its easy-to-use features, allowing users to organize and edit their photos through the use of tags or filters respectively.
He also started his own YouTube channel, and became known for his comedic videos as well as videos which showcased his musical prowess; his channel would gain over 450,000 subscribers thanks to consistent uploads. YouTube is a video sharing website and is one of the main sources of video content online. Numerous types of videos can be seen on the website including trailers, short films, music videos, video clips, video blogs (vlogs), live streams, and many more. Content creators can earn income through the Google AdSense program which simply put, gives income based on the number of ads viewed, interactions, and views of a video.
