Darren is currently in his sophomore year of high school. Before doing Youtube, Darren was still convinced he should not go to college. But, he did consider going to a trade school or focusing on sports. But, Youtube has changed everything for him and says he is going to continue to focus here.
He is even thinking about dropping out of high school next year as he thinks that high school is draining him and if he could focus all his attention on Youtube, he could progress a lot faster.
IShowSpeed Net Worth and Career
Darren’s friend inspired him to be doing Youtube. The irony is that his friend quit but he has stuck to it and progressed leaps and bounds. He originally started doing Youtube because of the lockdown since he had nothing else to do. The date he made his first video was April 21st, 2020 and he hasn’t stopped since.
Before, focusing most of his attention on Youtube, he was involved in a job related to a Nursing Home where he would deliver food to the elderly. But, since he started to make videos consistently and saw the growth that they had, Darren has been dedicated to Youtube.
The reason he has gotten so many subscribers on different platforms in such a short amount of time is that he was different in the sense that he was among the few who were making quality streams about NBA2k20 and NBA2k21. Darren even mentioned some tips for new content creators mentioning how it is very important to be both different and know what you’re strength is at.

Just like any teenager, he has had a hard time making his family understand what he is doing and the value that he is creating. When he hit 100k subscribers on Youtube and told his mother, his mother’s reaction wasn’t anything exciting which did piss him off.
He made a recent video where he mentioned how his girlfriend cheated on him which broke his heart completely and was even crying in the video. This was especially because he liked this girl, who is from Ohio, and was supporting her in all her endeavors.
