Mai Pham is a Canadian YouTube star famous for her beauty and travel videos on her YouTube channel ‘maiphammy’. Besides travel, lifestyle and makeup vlogs, she also posts about beauty transformation, daily life, high school, volleyball and room clean-up videos. Though she started her YouTube channel at a very young age, she did not begin regularly posting on it until just three years ago. She started off with videos about volleyball and her life at high school. Her school shopping hauls, fashion, make-up, GRWM (Get Ready With Me) and room clean-up videos started gaining traction amongst viewers. Soon, she gained a lot of subscribers and became a famous beauty and lifestyle vlogger. She loves to travel and has been independently travelling to various countries across the world since she was 15 years old. She moved out of her parents’ home at an early age to follow her passion of travelling and vlogging about it. Even though she is not yet an adult, she already makes a lot of money from her social media posts. She has thousands of subscribers to her YouTube channel and is very active on Instagram too. She continues to travel, vlog and build her social media career.
Mai Pham started her YouTube channel ‘maiphammy’ in December 2010 when she was very young. But she did not post any videos on the channel until she was in high school. The first ever video that she posted on her channel was in August 2015 called ‘What's in my Volleyball Bag! 2015’. Thereafter, most of her vlogs were related to volleyball, like volleyball Q&As, what to wear to a volleyball tryout, volleyball tournament, etc. Needless to say, she was an active volleyball player and took it very seriously at that point of time.
From mid-2016, she started posting videos about school supply hauls, clothes shopping trips, GRWM, along with volleyball-related videos. In August 2016, she posted a unique video showcasing her singing talent, where she did a cover of the song ‘Habits Of My Heart’ by the singer, James Young. In late 2017, she moved on to providing more unique content to her viewers in the form of creative videos like cleaning up her room at odd hours, beauty and makeup videos, etc. As she gained popularity, she started doing videos about life in high school, beauty routines, clothing hauls, and such other topics.
She visited Europe as part of her high school trip and shared the details of it with her subscribers in a four-part video. Soon after, she moved to Edmonton, began to focus on being a YouTuber and started posting transformation and ‘glow-up’ videos where she would buy new clothes, get her hair, nails, eyelashes and makeup done. The most popular video on her YouTube channel is ‘spending $1000 to be an instagram baddie | transformation challenge’. The beauty and lifestyle vlogger’s YouTube channel crossed the 200,000 subscribers mark in October 2018. She has 619,000 subscribers on YouTube so far.
After leaving high school, Mai Pham began to travel a lot and at the age of 16, she has so far visited Toronto, California, New York, Hawaii, Bali, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Lisbon, Milan, Rome, etc. She has been a very independent person from a very young age. When she was about 9 - 11 years old, her father took her to Asia for the first time, where she handled all their flight bookings. This gave her and her parents the confidence to let her travel alone all over the world.
She is very active on Instagram too, with over 231,000 followers. She also attends beauty and lifestyle conferences like BeautyCon. At one point of time, she also had her own apparel and merchandise line. She makes most of her income from YouTube, affiliations and paid sponsorships from fashion brands.
