Very soon, her passion for sharing her feelings grew into a full-time career when she started a YouTube Channel called ‘LaToya Forever.’ The name of the channel would later become her nickname. Some of the first videos that she created were comedy skits and jokes with the intention of entertaining herself and her followers.

The success of her first book made her write her autobiography called, ‘LaToya's Life: Uncut Mishaps of a YouTube Star’ in 2016. The book details all the hurdles she had to overcome in her career. This second book cemented her place as a good author and boosted her brand image among her fans. In June 2016, LaToya Forever partnered with ‘Gone Viral TV’ to give a social media seminar on writing.

Behind the Curtains

Despite so much responsibility, her parents provided her with all the required facilities necessary to guarantee her professional growth.

She would often lament about this fact in her videos later on. LaToya Forever is married to Adam Ali and has two children: a daughter named Samia and a son named Zayn.
