Pansino mentioned that she was a shy and awkward kid and that her friends thought she was a nerd. In an interview with Huffington Post, she further clarified, “I never called myself that, but it’s what other people called me. The things I enjoyed growing up were considered nerdy at the time. I loved reading, science, video games, math and took AP calculus in high school.” Pansino also revealed that the best way she could learn as a kid was through visual content as she has Dyslexia, which also made it more challenging for her to finish her books.
Even after leaving Seattle and moving to LA, Pansino kept in close contact with her family and often featured her father and sister on her channel (her mother appeared in a video as well). In December 2019, her father passed away after fighting Leukaemia for 6 years. Naturally, it took quite a toll on Pansino as indicated by her heartbreaking post on Instagram.
