Social Media Speaker Justine Ezarik rose to fame in 2007 after uploading a seemingly simple video of her opening and reading through a 300-page iPhone bill from one of Apple’s first generation iPhones.

From there, Justine began sharing humorous videos of her failed cooking attempts, lifestyle tips, and updates on the latest technology. Her ability to connect with people through social media gave her an opportunity to take her career through endorsements and partnerships with today’s top brands.
