1) FULL NAME:
I don’t give out my full name. Never have, even from the beginning! I’m Josh. 🙂
2)WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I’m 50% Ukrainian and 50% French Canadian.
3)WHEN DID YOU START YOUTUBE AND WHY?
I dropped out of college! It was a big risk but I saw so many YouTubers like Louis becoming successful and thought I could do that too! I only had $3,000 and thought if I was going to make any good videos I better start now! So I dropped out of college because it will always be there if I wanted to go back. It was an amazing experience and it just got better and better. Building up and up! I’ve grown SO fast – I gained a MILLION subscribers in a year! I took the chance and thank fully it worked out for me because I really didn’t want to go to college. I really felt that I shouldn’t be sitting behind the desk 9 – 5 as I’m so high energy and hyper that it just wouldn’t suit me!
I started making Breakdance videos in 2010 when I was 17 on another account which no one knows about 😉 which is pretty cool! I stopped 2 years later and started to focus on high school more as I wasn’t doing so well. I then started my Channel in 2014!
4)HOW AND WHEN DID YOU MEET LOUIS?
It all started before I started YouTube where I would watch Louis A LOT. That gave me the inspiration to do what I’m doing now. As I got bigger and bigger on YouTube I guess he noticed me? So I was lying in bed one day and he tweeted me; I couldn’t believe it! I thought it was a fake account but it turned out it was him! I replied saying ‘Dude oh my god, I watch you all day!’ and we figured out that we were in Tokyo at the same time and so we met there. We did this crazy adventure at night where we scaled rooftops! This was April 20th 2016….
From there we kept talking and chilled together at VidCon; thats where I became a part of LTA 🙂
5)WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST PASSION IN LIFE?
ummm, I thought it was traveling the world but then I have breakdancing too. It’s BOTH! I’d have to say both. I literally think of both everyday equally.
6)WHAT’S BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE ADVENTURE?
Oh man. My favourite Adventure so far that I won’t forget is when I went to Japan and I went to an abandoned theme park called Nara Dreamland. I went alone! I left at 4 in the morning and walked there by 5:30am! I took a crazy risk…! I documented it and it was amazing. It’s an exact replica of Disney Land. I went into the Castle all by myself! I even walked ON the roller coaster tracks at the top and took a picture…insane!!
7)WHAT’S BEEN YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?
I ended up spelling my own name wrong and I wrote it in dust! I put ‘exploring’ but I spelt it wrong. It went ONLINE and I only realised it was wrong when I started getting comments. I ended up taking it down lol!
8)WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS TIME?
I’m 23 now and would love to continue doing YouTube; But my life switches so much! I could see myself becoming a film maker in 10 years. I don’t know! Either sticking with the travel YouTube life or progressing into more of an actor/film maker!
9)WHAT’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT WE MIGHT NOT KNOW?
uhhhhhhh. I pretty much share everything in my vlogs so this is a tricky question. Umm. Oh I had my appendix taken out when I was 8!
10)WHAT DOES ‘LIVE THE ADVENTURE’ MEAN TO YOU?
I think Live the Adventure is a positive group that just wants get people out there and maybe step away from technology, to see how life was suppose to be lived naturally! Seeing nature, creating memories with friends and meaningful moments in life! I think that is what Live the Adventure means; creating meaningful moments that you’ll remember. The true stuff that we just don’t get if we’re just sitting in our houses everyday being lazy.
