What has largely remained unknown are the details of her family background and the kind of upbringing she had. However, reports have it that her parents aren’t originally from Canada.

Azzyland Began Her YouTube Career In May 2015 When She Was 24 Years Old
Most of Azzyland’s outputs as a content creator are relatable and this is because they are drawn from her experiences in real life. For instance, her impressive gaming videos can be attributed to the fact that she has been gaming since she was a kid. She grew up watching her father play games with his brother. They taught her how to play and by the time she was seven years old, she was already good at games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Creating and sharing videos online wasn’t something Azra planned to do for a living. She intended to become a doctor. After she graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a double degree in Chemistry and Biology, she was going to further her education and become a doctor as her parents desired. But then, she had a thing for cosplay and had been gaining significant attention as a cosplayer.
She cosplayed in many popular conventions and after one of her performances, she was invited for an interview on a YouTube show hosted by McCrudden. At the end of the day, he hired her as a co-host of a popular show titled Before They Were Famous, which also aired on YouTube. While at the job, she created her channel on the 8th of May 2015, posted her first video on the 27th of that same month, and the rest is history.

Azra Bajrami was initially inconsistent with uploading videos on her channel but when she resolved to take it seriously, she took aggressive measures to grow her channel, apart from gaming and cosplaying videos, she took part in all kinds of social media challenges, created DIY videos, commentaries, and what have you.
In addition to the above, she took to daring the YouTube community to gain more subscribers. For instance, she recorded significant growth when she promised to set a twerking record. Azra bragged that she would pull off a “twerkathon”, twerk for 24 hours non-stop.
She kept her promise and made a twerking video that lasted for 23 hours, 28 minutes. Even though it was claimed that the video was wound back to the beginning repeatedly, it gained Azra millions of views and hundreds of subscribers.
Another significant growth moment in her career was when she vowed to share her nudes if she reach one million subscribers. On the 26th of May 2017 when she was 26 years old, Azzyland reached the one million subscribers milestone and she kept her promise; albeit she has a skin-colored dress on.
While it is hard to argue that the promise of going nude didn’t help her quickly attain the feat, Azra’s entertaining content facilitated her fast growth as a YouTuber and continues to sustain her.
