Tana Mongeau was born on June 24th, 1998 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Growing up in an extremely low-income family household, Mongeau began rebelling from parents around the age of fourteen, the same age she began to use marijuana and alcohol. Tana credits her discovery of Youtube at age of eleven for keeping her sane through her preteen years and essentially as she’s put it in her videos “saving her life”. Mongeau began watching some of the world famous Youtubers of today such as Shane Dawson and the Gabbie Show starring Gabbie Hanna and knew she wanted to be part of this world.
Mongeau knew she was destined for stardom from the moment she was born, her likable personality, quick wit and sense of humor made it easy for her to talk to anyone. Which was a big help when it came to the creation of her own Youtube channel. But before Tana became the “Story Time” queen we all know and love, her first social platform appearance was through Twitter. Mongeau launched her very first tweet in 2012 and it was history in the making from there.
It wasn’t long after Tana’s Twitter account became a popular success that she finally joined the Youtube world. In April of 2015 Tana launched her Youtube account and very first video ever. At first, the young girl wanted to make her channel about fashion and style advice. But she quickly realized she had much more to offer than that. Mongeau’s personality and unapologetic nature allowed her to earn over 2.3 Million subscribers in just a little over a year.
Tana’s fame really skyrocketed in 2017 when she began dating actress and social media personality Bella Thorne.
