Life Outside Of YouTube Edit

Early Life And Family Edit

Kayla was born on August 14, 1999 in Chicago, Illinois. She spent the first six years of her life in Chicago (where her grandparents still live), and then moved to Oviedo, Florida. Kayla visits Chicago for a week in the winter and summer every year. She is the oldest child of her family and has two younger siblings named Shanna and Brett. Her mother is called Karen but most of Kayla's viewers refer to her as Mommasimsie. Her dad hasn't made many appearances on her channel but he usually lurks in Kayla's streams saying nothing but "sup" to which the whole chat replies "sup" back to him. At a young age, Kayla played soccer for her local soccer team, although this did not last long. The family has three dogs called Mako, Bimini, and Captain and three cats called Snapper (also known as Snapcat), Lemon and Pogie. Kayla recently announced she is taking Snapcat with her to her new house. Shanna also has turtles, bunnies and birds.

Middle And High School Career Edit

Kayla often mentions how she didn't have a lot of friends in middle school as most of her friends dropped her around this time. She opened up a while ago about the fact that her father got multiple myeloma during this period. She said in a podcast that she got into playing The Sims 3 during this. She was in Kayla's own words "a real try hard" in high and middle school (this is the origin of the good noodle meme). She took multiple college credit classes in highschool and was on her school cheerleading team for a brief period of time.

College career Edit

Kayla graduated high school and started college in 2017 at a university in Florida. She recently completed her freshman year, majoring in history. Kayla changed her major, it was originally digital media major. During this year she lived in a dorm with her roommates. Kayla signed a renting contract for an apartment where she plans to live next semester with her friend Jill. A good while later, Kayla announced she is actually going to be living in a townhouse.

YouTube Origins Edit

In middle school, Kayla and her neighbor and friend started a YouTube channel where they played with Littlest Pet Shop toys. They stopped uploading on this channel when starting high school. A few years later Kayla started uploading The Sims 4 videos on this channel, such as the 100 baby challenge and the first episodes of her Steele family. When the channel hit 10,000 subscribers her old neighbor kicked Kayla out of the channel and deleted the videos that Kayla made. Kayla then started her current channel, lilsimsie, where she rapidly grew a big audience. Currently, the lilsimsie channel has 285k subscribers. The first video she uploaded was “I was hacked: story time” which is now unlisted. As of now, the first video on her channel is the first episode of her Get Together series.
