Early Life and Career as a YouTuber


Ashly's path was lengthy and varied, spanning 19 occupations. His employment included positions as a frozen yogurt topping scooper, camp counselor, and office manager at his father's dental business. He also taught English in Daegu, South Korea, and traveled around Asia as part of his employment. During this time, Ashly started producing blogs and articles for 'BuzzFeed,' a New York-based online media company. His lifestyle essay for BuzzFeed, headlined 'I Wasn't Beautiful Enough To Live In South Korea,' went viral, underlining the country's obsession with women's looks.


This groundbreaking essay earned him an editorial fellowship at 'BuzzFeed,' motivating him to go to New York for a six-month internship in 2013. Following his internship, Ashly was promoted to video producer and development partner at 'BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.' In this job, he developed and edited website material as well as co-authored 'BuzzFeed Violet,' which featured the company's first scripted characters.


In December 2015, Ashly and his crew debuted their first stand-alone series, 'You Do You,' which swiftly topped 'iTunes TV,' outperforming popular shows like 'The Walking Dead' and 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians.' During his tenure at BuzzFeed, Ashly developed famous quizzes such as 'What City Should You Live In?' and 'What Career Should You Have?' He was also instrumental in bringing Toyota on board as a sponsor for 'BuzzFeed's inaugural scripted series.


Ashly once gave an inspiring lecture about reaching one's ideal profession at 'Colorado State University.' He frequently discussed the misconceptions that Asian women endure, as well as his own experiences with being evaluated based on his looks, complexion, and body type. As an outspoken member of the 'Asian Student Union,' has regularly aired his thoughts on how Asian women are portrayed in the media.


He campaigned for stereotype-free material that includes women of diverse skin tones, facial characteristics, and sexual orientations. Ashly announced his resignation from 'BuzzFeed' in February 2018, leaving a legacy of meaningful and inclusive media contributions.

Ashly once referred to Mallory Wang, former 'BuzzFeed Director of Insights,' as his long-lost sister.


Ashly's 'BuzzFeed Violet' persona was renowned for being forthright, but he startled fans by disclosing his homosexuality during a 'You Do You' episode.
