So many businesses nowadays worry about staying relevant – you can be hot one day and forgotten the next. People in their twenties seem like an especially fickle demographic. They’re always in pursuit of novelty, always chasing the newest trend.
Fortunately, some people understand that fashionable twenty-something crowd. These people don’t follow the trends. They set the trends. People like 26-year-old Eva Marisol Gutowski, who goes by mylifeaseva online. She’s not just a beautiful young thing. She’s not just a triple threat. She’s an actress/singer/author/TV producer/clothing designer – is that a quintuple threat? And she’s not done yet.
Mylifeaseva has a massive audience – 30.3 million followers total on her Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook pages – who hang on her every word. Established in 2011, her YouTube channel has over 1.4 billion views. She covers relatable and funny content, showing off her thrift store hauls and self-care routines. Her “How to Survive High School” comedy series has over 100 million views all by itself. She also loves to cook her own vegan meals, and talks about her life as a bisexual woman and other LGBTQ+ issues.
But she’s not afraid to cover serious subjects, too. She discusses the time she was sexually assaulted, and how she was best friends with a compulsive liar for years. These experiences have only made her stronger, more determined to reach out and help others who might be suffering through the same thing.
Eva Gutowski grew up in Orange County, California, right next to the beach. She always knew she wanted to reach out to others, and that’s what she did in 2015 with “How to Survive High School.” Eva has had main roles in many shows since then, including Me and My Grandma with Rhea Perlman of Cheers fame. Eva also writes, sings, and produces her own music under the name Marisol. Her latest is the song “Hawaii.”
And if that’s not enough, she’s also the author of the book My Life as Eva: The Struggle is Real. Her web store, It’s All Wild, showcases her clothing line Happy Genius. Her pieces focus on sustainability and feature her unique blend of cutting-edge fashion and vintage charm.
Given that Eva Gutowski is such a hard-working – and gorgeous – young woman, living such a fast-paced lifestyle… Her personal life can be a bit tumultuous at times. But that just feeds her creativity. (Witness her web series “How to Survive a Breakup.”) One of her exes even tried to use her for her fame! But she took it philosophically. “Don’t ship everything you see in a photo. Let’s laugh at how stupid I was for putting up with all of that for so long,” she wrote.
Her latest relationship with Norwegian photographer Olav Stubberud doesn’t have those problems, though. They have been dating since 2020 and seem very happy. He doesn’t need to use her for fame – he’s the official photographer for the world-famous snowboarding crew RK1. Olav’s photos were first published when he was 13 years old. Now he regularly works with top athletes in the snowboarding circuit, as well as celebrities such as Snoop Dogg and Steve-O.
So what’s coming up next for Mylifeaseva? She doesn’t know for sure – but one thing is certain. She’ll use it to help herself grow as a person. She’ll use it to help others.
And it’s going to be a wild ride.
