Mills was born in the Philippines and raised in the Ottawa, Ontario area. She began making home videos when she was eight years old. In high school, she was inspired to become a YouTuber by watching the YouTube videos of Grace Helbig and Casey Neistat. At the beginning of 2017, she had about 15,000 subscribers on YouTube. Her channel gained subscribers very quickly after her coming-of-age videos went viral later that year. In particular, her November 2017 coming out video, in which she came out as bisexual, pushed her over the million-subscriber mark. She signed with Fullscreen in June 2017, and they produced her first ever tour in the spring of 2018. By the end of 2017, her channel had over 915,000 subscribers, and she surpassed 1 million subscribers in February 2018. That May, she suffered a mental breakdown and posted a video announcing that she would take a break from making new videos. She returned to YouTube a month later. She signed with United Talent Agency in December 2018.
