Oftentimes, people assume that life’s greatest hindrances are one’s humble beginnings. Although this belief may be valid to some extent, considering factors like one’s resources and connections, it is not always the case. As some established authorities have attested in their journeys to success, greatness can come even in the most unlikely things. It can be born out of individuals rooted in a line of successful ascendants, or it can rise from driven go-getters who only hold passion, dedication, and ambition in their arsenal that ultimately catapults them towards the summits of success. Ultimately, it is not the circumstances that make one’s success story, but the will to climb the pinnacles that carve a path to greatness.
No matter how bumpy the road may be, Yung Hassi, an emerging personality across the digital space, says that success is within arm’s reach for those who persevere and believe in themselves. As someone who has had his fair share of ups and downs, the rising go-getter proves worthy of his stellar reputation by demonstrating the power of passion, persistence, and hard work. Today, this power player rises through the ranks, becoming an inspiration to many aspirants across the world.
In an interview, Yung Hassi revealed that he was no stranger to hardships, failures, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. As a matter of fact, he was pegged as an unpopular high school kid with no promising future ahead of him. “Whenever I went to school, the other kids made fun of me and called me names,” he shared. “Whenever I got a job, my boss would end up firing me after a short amount of time. It just seemed like I could not do anything right.”
Because of these tough challenges, Yung Hassi looked for an escape. And just like any ordinary teenager, he turned to social media. He became an avid fan of comical internet memes, which inspired him to produce his own content through social media pages he created on Twitter and Instagram.
In 2016, after a year of creating and sharing meme content on social media, Yung Hassi became viral and amassed nearly five million followers on Twitter and Instagram. He began running ads and garnered 15 million followers. This milestone has led him to earn more than six figures in just a year while catching the attention of notable personalities like Logan Paul, Snoop Dogg, Ray J. Hassi, and Lil Yachty.
“It is hard to believe that only four years ago, I was a broke teenager with no job. That is the power of social media,” he said.
Today, Yung Hassi no longer depends on his social media pages to earn a living and promote his clients’ work. Instead, he has become one of the social media’s must-watch content creators, proving that one’s humble beginnings do not hinder anyone from attaining success in the future. As he continues to climb the industry’s summits, he hopes to inspire others to chase their dreams, no matter how difficult the road may seem.
