February 7, 1987
LaToya Howard, better known as ‘LaToya Forever,’ is a revered name in the YouTube community. Her infectious smiles, picture-perfect profile, and entertaining content have endeared her to fans worldwide. Howard was born in Ontario, Canada, on February 7, 1987, to Nigel Wilson and Debbie Howard. Both her parents are from Trinidad and Tobago, so Howard is an Aquarius of Trinidadian descent. Howard was born into a big family. She has seven younger siblings. When Howard was in middle school, her family migrated to the United States for her mother’s education. However, due to the constant inter-state migration, Howard couldn’t maintain or nurture childhood and pubescent friendships. So she resorted to video creation as an outlet. Eventually, she began posting these videos too.
In 2010, at 23 years, she started her YouTube channel ‘LaToya Forever.’ She mainly posted comedic skits to entertain herself and others on the internet. One of her most popular videos was about her experience with her Caribbean heritage. These videos were dubbed “Shit Caribbean Moms Say,” and they mirrored her experience with her mother and other Caribbean mothers. When she became pregnant with her first child, Samia, Howard started a video blog titled “LaToya’s Life.” It was visual documentation of her life. In 2012 she was hired to host “Vibe TV” at the AMAs, and by 2015 with under 500,000 subscribers on her YouTube, Howard was a YouTube Correspondent for the “YouTube FanFest Live” event of May 2015.
Howard has a fascinating career. Asides from a YouTube account of almost 1.5 million subscribers, she has appeared on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Season 13,” produced an e-book, and written her autobiography titled “LaToya’s Life: Uncut Mishaps of a YouTube star.” As a successful woman, Howard shares her life with her three children.
