This is Fei from FeisWorld Media. I know it's a Sunday afternoon for those of you on the east, on the east coast of America. Um, but I'm here to introduce you guys to what, who I consider a really interesting character now, Justin Awad from TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, uh, your work was introduced to me, Justin, through one of your connections and I've really enjoyed it, it over the past few weeks.

So welcome to

Justin Awad

the show. Thank you so much for having me. This is,

Fei Wu

So I know that this is like your second or maybe your third interview now, and you haven't really had a chance to share your personal story, your journey so far. So tell us, like, you know, what, why are you interested in now creating different types of content and then doing this type of collaborations?

Justin Awad

Yeah, I've, I've, uh, I love social media and I love entertaining people and making people smile and laugh and stuff, and. If we go back all the way to the beginning, it's not like in my head I was like, oh, I want to go do interviews. It was like, oh, like I wanna have fun with my friends and make my friends laugh and stuff.

So it all started from that. And, uh, always meeting new people, like that's the best part about it. And seeing them smile and laugh and that's the whole purpose of social media to me. It's. to bring joy, you know?

Fei Wu

Mm-hmm. . I love it. So you mentioned that you're making your friends laugh Oh, actually, before we even get to the origin of your, at the beginning of your creative work.

Yeah. Um, could you maybe tell us about, you know, kind of maybe the first occurrence of realizing that social media maybe interesting, maybe workable for you?

Justin Awad

The first instance? That's a good question. Um, well, when are the first ? Yeah, I think, I think that would go back to like the origin, cause it was during Covid when everybody was locked down and I couldn't see my friends and you know, like it wasn't a good time like mentally or emotionally for anybody.

But we all had phones, we all had like Xboxes computers and all that stuff. So that was a way to really connect with people, like close friends and even people that were, weren't friends. So the initial. Spark of like, oh, like I can do social media. Started by making and wanting to make my friends laugh and wanting to see my watch, my mom scroll through all my videos and just stuff like that.
