Collage and Assemblage
Casey Neistat is my hero and this collage shows
some of the things he has gone through throughout his life. Casey Neistat is a famous YouTube Star that makes vlogs about his everyday life. He is also sponsored by Samsung and owned a company and app called Beem, but he didn't get to this point very easily. Casey Neistat lived a harsh life when he was a child. His parents were always at work leaving him alone which led him to doing bad things. His parents then divorced (Broken Heart). He eventually left his mother's house at the age of 15. He lived with his girlfriend for a while and dropped out of high school. Later he moved to New York City where he then started doing his movies (Camera). He had also witnessed the 9/11 incident as it woke him up when the first plane hit the tower (9/11). Casey had the support of his brother who would give him 100$ a week to go visit his son in Connecticut three days a week. He and his brother worked together to produce an eight movie series called The Neistat Brothers. They sold this series to HBO for a total of 2 million dollars! He then started making videos and posting them on YouTube where his career started to build up. He then created a company and app called Beem (Beem Logo) which he then sold the company to CNN for a total of 25 million dollars. Today Casey lives happily with his wife and his baby daughter in New York City while his son Owen is now in college. Casey's story has motivated others to pursue their dreams and shows them that there is always a U-turn around from anything. Casey had come from being very poor and now is a rich guy who is sponsored by Samsung. His story gives me the confidence that I can dig myself out of any ditch if I work hard and believe in my own self.
