A difficult childhood is not always everything. Instead, it could set in motion a series of events that lead to success. Maaleak Wilbur had structured his life journey like this, and while it is not exactly the best thing he has experienced, he remains grateful that he somehow succeeded in his journey.
20-year-old Maaleak Wilbur is a social media marketing (SMM) professional who has built a successful brand for himself on social media and helped internet celebrities and influencers build their brands. He’s also an astute public speaker and influencer who uses his platform as a source of inspiration for young people. He has built multiple sources of income ranging from social media to entrepreneurship and investing.
Looking back on his journey so far, Maaleak remembers his childhood, which brought him to a foster family at the tender age of 4. In the system, he lived in four nursing homes, a few group houses and the witness protection program. The concept of family was alien to him as a young boy, and he spent most of his early years learning how to do things on his own. From his eighth to twelfth birthday, he was heavily involved in gaming, where he built a solid fan base and 30,000 YouTube subscribers. However, his unstable life situation made him give up all of this and lost his channel to hackers in 2012.
In 2013 he renamed himself and started over through Facebook live sessions. Teenagers attracted him because of his personality. He started making relationship advice videos and thousands of people found his content relatable, which is reflected in his following. His followers on Facebook rose to hundreds of thousands. Shortly thereafter, he switched to Instagram and Snapchat, where he gained a total of more than 120,000 followers. Unfortunately it crumbled again when he was brought into witness protection (WITSEC) because he could not maintain a public profile with his true identity.
Maaleak Wilbur got his groove back when he turned 18 and returned to social media for the path he is today. From social media, he came to investing in the forex market for passive income. He graduated from high school with honors and focused on his social media business and other passive sources of income. Maaleak’s difficult circumstances never deterred him. He’s made waves on various social media platforms, particularly TikTok, where he’s got thousands of views and likes. One of his TikTok viral videos is his “How to Know If a Boy Likes You” video, which has garnered over 40,000 likes and 17,000 comments.
With a dominant presence on social media, Maaleak has quickly established a connection with children, teenagers, young adults, and others looking to expand their social media presence through its relatable relationships and educational content. “I actually care about my supporters, and while I’ve been the underdog in this story, I still got my way and I’m still strong. I want the same for as many people as possible, ”he said. Maaleak hopes to become influential enough to inspire the new generation and show them that they can achieve whatever they set out to do. As he continues to grow, he plans to become a public speaker in a few years and document his life story in a book to inspire millions of young people around the world.
