Parents and Sister
Eva Gutowski comes from a family of four consisting of her dad, John Gutowski, her mom (name not available at the moment) and a younger sister named Maya. Even though the YouTube star has a glamorous life now, it wasn’t always so. Her mom lost her job when she was just in the sixth grade and the family was unable to make ends meet. They had to move to a one-bedroom apartment and Eva and her sister used the living room as a bedroom. The family’s situation affected Gutowski’s self-confidence as well as her social life. Seeing how withdrawn she was, her dad gifted her a video camera to play around with. It was this camera that she used to make the videos that would eventually turn her into a YouTube star.
