Marzia opens up about her insecurities

The former YouTuber made the emotional upload on her Instagram, and detailed her struggles with insecurity about the right side of her face. In the post, she revealed that she started focusing on using angles to feel comfortable.

“My face is so asymmetrical I always found it embarrassing. When I started making videos, I found out my favourite angles and stuck with it. However, it is exhausting, silly and simply put, superficial,” she wrote.

Marzia then expressed that she actually felt embarrassed of her appearance and would hide one side of her face. “I was so insecure and ashamed that it made me hate how I looked, and wanted to hide it, so I pretty much banished the right side of my face from being on photos.”

However, she said after years of struggling with it, she’s finally ready to embrace her whole face. “So here I am trying to embrace the side of my face I was never fond of. It took me way too long to be comfortable to share this.”

Beauty is symmetry, and every time I looked in the mirror I didn't see it. My face is so asymetric I always found it embarrassing. When I started making videos, I found out my favourite angles and stuck with what I liked best ever since. However, it is exhausting, silly and simply put, superficial. Because of my crooked nose and mouth, I find myself looking completely different from one side of my face to the other. I was so insecure and ashamed that it made me hate how I looked, and wanted to hide it, so I pretty much banished the right side of my face from being on photos. I think after turning 27, and especially during this whole quarantine period, I have been doing a lot of self-reflection. So here I am trying to embrace the side of my face I was never fond of. It took me way too long to be comfortable to share this, which again feels so silly, and although I will most definitely go back to my default often, here is my attempt to being more comfortable in my own skin from now own. ?

Twitch streamer throws up after shouting too much

A Twitch streamer raising money for charity got a little bit too excited after a big donation came in, and literally threw up in the process.

Streamers often times use their platforms to help raise funds for causes they believe in. For WeThePeople1, this meant raising capital for the homeless in Boston.

While playing a game of Apex Legends, the streamer received a $200 donation, which put him over the $1000 mark in under an hour.

Pleased with himself, WeThePeople1 started shouting out, clearly hyped over how his viewers were contributing to the cause.

“You guys are nuts!” he screamed. “Listen, I want everyone to go f**king bonkers with the ‘gangs’ in chat right now! Everyone, go spam that sh*t.”

‘Gang’ is an emote exclusive to subscribers of WeThePeople1’s channel. Oftentimes streamers will ask their viewers to spam special emotes when their streams are popping off.

“I want you guys to spam that sh*t harder than ever! Harder than ever! Like you guys have never seen that ‘gang’ in your life and now you’re seeing it for the first time like it’s one thousand pounds of gold in front of you!” he blurted out. “Oh my God, you guys are the sh*t!”

Unfortunately for the streamer, those words weren’t the last things to come out of his mouth as puke blasted out and onto his hands.

“I just puked,” he said, holding up his arms in disgust while trying to get his headset off. “It’s all over my floor.”

After running off, the streamer returned a few moments later with some Febreze, but remained in high spirits. “This is some f***ing content, huh?” he laughed.

Eventually, however, he decided to just clean up later as he was going to need a lot of soap.

On the bright side, the streamer wasn’t deterred from keeping his broadcast going and has raised over $1100 at the time of this post.
