24 years ago a legend was born in Gothemburg, Sweden. His name was Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. As a kid he was interested in games and cartoons and played a lot at home. Year 2008 he graduated and went to Chalmers University to study IT but he wasn't enjoying what he was doing. Two years later he quit school and started a youtube channel. He uploaded gaming videos which weren't that successful to begin with. He didn't have that many people watching him and he wasn't any different from other accounts. What changed this was when he dared himself to play a horror game called Amnesia. In his first videos he was really scared of both playing and talking but It got better in each epidsode. To his comfort he made friends out of objects in the game which made his playing style unik. He gained audience as the time passed and later year 2010 he was the fastest growing channel on Youtube. He got really happy when he realised he could have this as his full time job. At 700 000 subscribers he could be seen on the news all around Sweden. The fact of him speaking english in his videos made him international as well.
He later met an Italian girl online called Marzia Bisognin. When he had enough money he went there to meet her. They got together and moved to Italy after living in a small apartment in Sweden.
His channel kept on growing and he started wondering when this was going to stop. It never did. 15th of August his channel was ranked as the most subscribed on Youtube with the number of around 12 million subscribers. By that he is now in Guinness book of world records and
with the power he now has he started a water charity project which his subscribers all together towards this donated over 450 000 dollars. He and his girlfriend later moved to Britain for better internet connection. He himself says he's living the dream with over 2.6 billion video views and 14.7 million subscribers or as he calls them, bros.
I am such a proud Swedish bro and I really want to thank you Felix for proving how your dreams can come true if you only believe in yourself. I adore you for being yourself and noone else. From my heart I want to say I love you Pewds, happy birthday!
