Rise to Stardom
At the age of 13, Gracie Piscopo took her first job at the cafe of an ice skating rink, but she did not like the job and was fired because she was too young for the job, even though on hindsight, she thinks she was fired because she used to steal and eat snacks from there. She began her Instagram journey in June 2013 because she liked to take pictures of herself and wanted to share them. However, she never consciously tried to become an Instagram star. Nevertheless, her fan base grew steadily and her Instagram profile helped her secure modeling contracts.
Gracie Piscopo already had a YouTube channel since July 2014, and eventually decided to share her travel vlogs, beauty and lifestyle videos with her fans, starting with the 'Bali Vlog' in October 2016. She began chronicling her pregnancy in 2018, which gave a whole new dimension to her as a social media influencer.

What Makes Gracie Piscopo Special
Gracie Piscopo is loved by her fans for her genuine, down-to-earth and lovable nature which is evident from her videos. She doesn't think too much of herself and keeps her expectations low. She is very spiritual and writes down three things she is grateful for every night. She used to think that she and her two sisters will grow up to be witches like she saw on the television show 'Charmed'. Not only witches, she believes in fairies, mermaids, aliens, and would easily believe any conspiracy theory thrown at her.
Gracie Piscopo is also a hopeless romantic who thinks love is the real magic in the world. She believes in the law of attraction and 'The Secret' is her favorite book. She faced severe bullying in high school and even suffered from depression, but feels that it shaped her to be the person she is now. She still cares too much about what people think about her, which she is trying to improve as being in the public eye attracts negativity.
