Did you know that one of the most popular people on YouTube doesn't have a book yet? It's true! I guess making videos for over 18 million subscribers keeps you kind of busy. But soon, Ryan Higa (whose Twitter bio reads: that asian on youtube) will be making the leap from screen to page with his unconventional, irreverent, yet heartfelt memoir inspired by his Draw My Life video, which has been viewed over 27 million times.
Ryan's fans (aka higaholics) (aka lamps) will flock to his first book and won't be disappointed. And people who've never heard of him will find his story of overcoming bullying inspiring.
Ryan Higa is a YouTube celebrity, actor, comedian, and producer. He got started on YouTube while uploading videos as a teenager growing up in Hawaii back in 2006, and he's been doing it ever since. Ryan has over 19 million subscribers to his nigahiga channel, and has held the coveted 'Most Subscribed to Channel on YouTube' spot multiple times. His "Draw My Life" video, which inspired the idea for his book, has had over 30 million views since being posted three years ago. While he no longer lives in Hawaii, Ryan continues to produce weekly videos from his home in Las Vegas, NV.
