“Kween Yasmin” slowly became an internet celebrity just by being herself: intense, clueless, silly, hilarious. To date, there are over 100,000 on YouTube, nearly 150,000 on TikTok, and over 300,000 on Facebook “Yasminnatics”.

She is now a talent of Viva Artist Agency.

If you’re wondering who she is and why does she have this huge legion of fans, that makes the two of us (a hundred thousand, probably). Her videos include makeup transformations, dance numbers, song covers, personal confessions, and more. One of his most popular videos is the action-packed martial arts demo, an Acting 101 and his “Lalaking Manloloko”, his cover of the song by ex-battalion Hayaan mo Sila. Whatever she offers, the clueless, chaotic yet inspiring energy of Kween Yasmin is everything and more.

Behind his comedy videos that have entertained Filipinos online are stories that will make anyone their age cry. This content creator and social media personality was said to have been a sophomore before, but she decided to drop out of school because she was being bullied for not being too pretty and good enough . She confessed to how someone pushed her down the school stairs and how the students laughed at her, threw things at her, insulted her and even physically injured her. This relentless bullying caused her emotional and mental distress, so she decided to drop out of college even though she was doing extremely well in her studies. If she gets the chance, she still wants to finish college, but in the meantime, supporting her family is her current priority.

This internet royalty has taken over the virtual space since 2018, and its bullies have turned into online bashers, with some even cursing it and threatening to harm it. Even when posting about how tired and hurt she is with negative comments directed at her, she continues to kill people with kindness, wishing them blessings and relentlessly giving off good vibes.

Her funny pictures, OOTDs and dance moves aside, Yasmin will be remembered for one of the most hysterical moments in the online community – she went viral for not being able to join her own virtual date! Also labeled as the “versatile kween,” Yasmin scheduled a virtual meet and greet for a weekend, but was left out. As she posted on her Facebook: “Guys, sorry, gawa ako again Zoom Link to meet and greet later. Kasi po yung hindi host po makapasok pati po ako. Haha.

The Kween is currently busy with more song covers, jaw-dropping photo ops (where she dons a colorful pambahay outfit, complete with an umbrella, boots, baskets) of her choice. which she rightly calls “campy mode”. Well, she did a great job.

She lives her own truth, loves her own skin and continues to inspire girls her age who, like her, are not celebrities but dream of influencing people with only laughter and good vibes.
