The iconic YouTuber and all-around hero turns 28 years old today
It feels like just yesterday that Tyler was sitting his dorm room and uploading his first video….
And now our fave YouTuber is 28 [we’re not crying; you are!] One of the best things about Tyler is that no matter how famous he’s become, he continues to stay true to himself. “Since the beginning I have always tried to just be me,” he says. “YouTube has always been a diary for me. I’m here to share what I do, share my life, and if people want to watch, more power to them.”
