Sophia grew up in a happy family with her parents and younger sister. She has always been proud of her Korean roots and embraced them throughout her life. After high school, she applied and got accepted to California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

She created her YouTube channel in 2009 and started posting makeup tutorials. Her first-ever video is called Rave Makeup Tutorial, and it got a lot of views. Sophia loved creating different eyeshadow looks, and for some time, she stuck with the same theme as other beauty channels. She filmed tutorials, makeup routines and hauls. But after some time, she got bored and realized that she craved more creative videos that would show who she really was.

Korea’s beauty culture is heavily reliant on skincare of all kinds. They are known for their facials that last over an hour and make long-lasting changes to one’s skin. Sophia was raised in a Korean household, so she learned as much as she could from her family members about her skin. She found out what skin type she has and how to take care of it so it stays clear and young-looking for a long time. ASMR videos got really popular in 2018, and Sophia wanted to try to film some by herself. So she invited fellow YouTubers Weylie and Jenn Im and offered to perform a facial on their faces. They agreed, and Sophia uploaded two ASMR facial videos, which got her over 5 million views.

Sophia's aesthetic YouTube content

Sophia is a sensitive human being who tries to enjoy the little things in life. In the middle of her YouTube career, she started to change the theme of her videos. She began to share stories from her life and offer advice to her audience. In every video, she made sure to set up the right mood, so her audience could experience her emotions with her. She became very good at filming aesthetic videos with shots of the sunrise, her dark silhouette in a light room and calming music in the background.

Personal live of Sophia Chang

Sophia shared some personal stories with her fans and opened up about certain events that changed her life. In 2020 one of her Instagram posts went viral, but for the worst reason. She filmed herself while being out with her sister when some unknown man came to them and started insulting them. He was saying racist stuff and then pretended to not understand them. This caused a lot of influencers to reach out to Sophia and support her when she proceeded to release information about this man.

Sophia was in a loving relationship that unfortunately ended in 2021. Since then, she has been living alone and sharing her experience with her fans. She talked about it as being lonely and quiet but also as an opportunity to grow as a person. She is currently focusing on healing and finding the person she is by herself. She continues posting on YouTube, and her fans love her for her honesty.
