Jaiden Animations (born September 27, 1997) is an American artist, animator, and YouTuber.[2] The Jaiden Animations YouTube channel has amassed over 6.3 million subscribers and over 782 million video views as of June 2019.[3]

Career[edit]

Before starting her YouTube channel, Jaiden created animations for fellow YouTuber iHasCupquake[4][5] She registered her YouTube channel on February 16, 2014,[2] before uploading her first video later that year, in July.[6] Her video content consists of her sharing personal stories, utilizing a format that combines her animation and voiceover.[7] Her channel is signed under Channel Frederator, an animation-centric multi-channel network.[8][9] She is a part of the Animation Squad, a group of animators who collaborate on YouTube.[10] Jaiden's content style has been compared to fellow "Animation Squad" creator Dominic Panganiban (Domics).[11]

Jaiden attended the VidCon 2016 event, and is set to attend the VidCon US event in 2019.[12][13] She also attended VidCon Australia in 2018 as a featured creator.[14] In December 2017 and 2018, Jaiden appeared in the 2017 and 2018 installments of YouTube Rewind.[15] One of her tweets from 2017 giving advice on how to prevent liquids from spilling in luggage was covered by media outlets.[16][17][18]

In June 2018, Jaiden alongside David Brown released a song revolving around her Anorexia nervosa and self-image issues entitled "Empty".[19] In September, the Streamy Awards announced their nominations, which included Jaiden Animations for the "Animated" category; the storybooth channel ultimately won the award.[20][21] In October, Tubefilter noted her channel had accumulated over 4.6 million subscribers.[22] In December, Jaiden was again featured among other animators in YouTube's 2018 installment of their annual Rewind series.[23] While most-subcribed YouTuber PewDiePie himself was not featured in the video, Jaiden included PewDiePie-related references and memes in the video (corresponding with the PewDiePie vs T-Series rivalry); her portion of the video was particularly highlighted and praised by viewers, and also described by BBC News as a "popular animated sequence."[24]

On March 12, 2019, Jaiden was in MrBeast's $100,000 YouTuber Battle Royale video. She was on a team with TheOdd1sOut and Smosh's Anthony Padilla, and they won the first round.[25]

Personal life[edit]

Jaiden's parents grew up in Canada; her father is Caucasian and her mother is Japanese.[5] She currently lives in the United States.[5] Jaiden has discussed her struggles with bulimia and issues with her body image, and how that has affected her mental health.[4][26][27]
