Wengie was born on January 9th, 1986 in China. Her grandfather would take her out to get ice cream every Sunday. Her parents moved to Australia to start a better life and Wengie was raised by her grandparents and nannies. When she turned 4 she moved to Australia, but did not recognize her parents and was crying. Her brother was born and they loved each other. He cheered her on so she would finish her homework. She later pursued a career in blogging about fashion and beauty. She also started a Youtube channel to supplement her blog and so that fans could see her tutorials in a video.
