Eva Gutowski is a social media star and an uprising singer who shot to fame with her YouTube channel MyLifeAsEva. She chronicles her everyday life and produces comedy content on her account.

Let's learn more about Gutowski, starting with her full name, parents, siblings, and career as she continues to broaden the spectrum of her success with her singing abilities.

Gutowski's Parents and Ethnicity

The YouTuber was born Eva Marisol Gutowski on July 29, 1994, in Brea, California. Her parents are John and Ericka. A Leo by birth, she stands tall at the height of 5 feet and six inches. 

Gutowski grew up with her grandmother, who dropped her off at school every day.

In an interview with Hot 97 in 2017, the 26-year-old shared that her YouTube series titled 'Me and My Grandma' was based on her real chemistry with her grandmother. 

She also gave insights on her heritage and revealed that her ethnicity was an amalgam of Puerto Rican, Polish, and African ancestry. She got her beautiful African roots from her mother.  

As for her siblings, Gutowski has a younger sister named Maya, who is also into content creation. 

Her Family's Role In Her Career

Saying that her family supported her career choice would still be an understatement, for it was her parents, especially her father, who encouraged her to vlog in the first place. 

Gutowski was a freshman student majoring in broadcast journalism. She had to make videos and reports as part of her assignments. Her father advised her to practice speaking on camera, following which she thought to post videos on YouTube. 

Meanwhile, she blogged and had over a thousand readers in a week. But as soon as she posted videos on YouTube, she realized that the audience on the social media platform resonated with her high school spirit more.

So she stopped blogging and maintained consistency in her channel. At first, she provided comedy-related content and then vlogged on beauty tutorials, only to realize that beauty contents weren't her niche. 

She soon turned back to comedy sketches and made content related to her life. Her mother, her sister, and even her friends have helped her create unique content

A Look at Her Budding Career

Gutowski took the first step in her social media career on November 26, 2012. That day, she posted her first YouTube video, 'HUGE Black Friday Haul!'

Fast forward to 2021, she has over 11m subscribers and over one billion views on her channel. Her Instagram presence is also robust, with 7.5m followers. Her IG account gives glimpses of her trip to various countries like Japan, Switzerland, Maldives, Hawaii, and India.

Besides vlogging, Gutowski is also pursuing a musical career. She released her first music video, 'HAWAII,' on June 4, 2021.

As she mentioned in her interview with E! Online, music production is her passion, and she distributes equal time between creating content and learning the ins and outs of production. 

At 26, she has already won Teen Choice Awards and been included in Billboards' social media star list. The internet sensation has also published a book titled My Life as Eva: The Struggle is Real.
