Eugenia Cooney was born on 27 July 1994, in Connecticut, USA, and is an actress and model, best known for earning popularity initially through her self-titled YouTube channel, on which she produced various video blogs of her life. She’s accumulated millions of subscribers which has helped her to get more opportunities thanks to this exposure.
The Net Worth of Eugenia Cooney
How rich is Eugenia Cooney? As of early-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is now over $200,000, earned through success in her numerous endeavors, including collaborating with other YouTube personalities. She also studies acting, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Eugenia began her channel in 2011, initially intending it as a way to showcase some of her life through video blogs or vlogs; she also wanted to showcase her “Emo” lifestyle. Eventually, her endeavors proved successful, and her popularity on the website steadily increased. She also began drawing inspiration from other popular YouTubers, and decided to do live broadcasts of her channel.
The content of her channel varies from time to time, as she posts lifestyle, makeup, fashion and beauty videos as well. She also does challenge videos, and even took part in the viral ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during its popularity. In 2012, she became the winner of the New Face of Big Drop NYC, which started her career as a model. Her exposure has also led her to some acting appearances, with one of her first roles being in an episode of the series “Degrassi: New Class” in which she had a cameo, as her character was based heavily on her real life personality.
Controversy and Health
Despite the number of fans she’s attracted and great reviews on her YouTube channel, she has also been surrounded with a lot of controversy. Many of her supporters state that she is kind and optimistic, though she states that she is a boring person, but likes to go to concerts as well as listen to music. The huge negative attention she’s had is because people speculate that she is suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, or Anorexia which is an eating disorder characterized by low weight and fear of gaining weight, a disorder which causes the patient to restrict food intake.
However, Cooney has never admitted to having any problems with her body, or other health issues, despite being slim. She never talks about it and this in itself has been the basis of many criticisms. She says that she posts videos mainly to entertain, and does not want to negatively affect people. Many critics argue that the fact that her channel exists is a subtle promotion of the disorder, and people have petitioned against her. However, many of her fans are genuinely concerned about her health, and she has more supporters than detractors.
Eugenia grew up with her parents and a younger brother. She initially went to school in Connecticut, but later moved to New York City to take on acting classes. She lived with her mother in New York for a few years before moving into her own apartment. After her appearance in “Degrassi”, she started taking in more acting opportunities, and in 2017 she became a part of the first season of the series “Alex and the Single Girls”, which stars Katelynn Dubow and Alessandra DeMartino. She also took a part in the short film entitled “New Car for Christmas”, which was directed by Matthew Dunn and stars her alongside Max Cutler. Another of her recent projects is the film “Superheroes Use Tinder”, which also stars Alessandra DeMartino, Tahnee Harrison and Kurt Tocci.
Cooney continues to stay active on YouTube by posting videos on the website once a week, mainly various lifestyle and beauty related videos. She’s also active on the social media websites Instagram and Twitter, on which she posts regularly. Her Instagram page mainly has her posting various photos of her in different outfits and attires, but she also posts some photo shoots, recent endeavors, and photos with friends as well as family.
Her Twitter account on the other hand promotes some of her recent YouTube videos, and also updates fans about some of her daily endeavors. Recently she’s been in Disneyland, and has also done live broadcasting. She also communicates with her fans through the website.
Many online publications have covered Eugenia’s health condition, and calls it a public struggle with anorexia. Many claim that she is actually broadcasting her slow descent to death, as starving yourself is essentially damaging her body. She states on her social media that some people just post negative stuff about her on her social media pages, but she is not affected by it.
Finally, there aren’t even any rumours regarding Eugenia’s romantic associations.
