He also films video blogs (vlogs) which he puts on ‘MilesJaiVlog’ and music-based videos to ‘MilesJaiProductions2’. He is loved by his fans/subscribers and friends for his charisma, adorable look, witty sense of humour, creativity and inspirational responses.
Miles’ parents were military officials and when they got together, they had his older brother, Jordan in 1991. Two years later when Miles was born, his family moved to an air force base in California where they stayed for 5 years. Still young, Miles and his family moved to Anchorage in Alaska, USA where Miles started his first year at school in Kindergarten. He was of a loud and troublesome character but loved to draw female characters and comic books. Staying in Anchorage for 6 years, his parents decided to move back to California at Vandenberg Air Force Base and Miles went to middle school. He was a victim of prejudice and hate which he had a low tolerance for though he eventually made friends. Not long after, his parents divorced and his father moved to his own apartment while Miles and his brother stayed with their mother.
A few months after, Miles and Jordan were given their first video cameras which they enjoyed making their own dramas with, from this it was obvious Miles had a passion for being on camera creating his own sketches. Later, YouTube was created which he decided to upload his videos on. His mother retired from the military and they moved out to Las Vegas, USA where he continued to attend middle school. Miles still enjoyed drawing so his art class was his most loved class at the school. In eighth grade, he moved to another school and was in the year book staff where he made some of his best friends that he still kept in contact with when he left.
Miles then attended Mojave High School in North Las Vegas where he once again faced bullying from his class mates and the common question was about whether or not he was a homosexual from which they were not given a direct answer from Miles who thought it wasn’t their business to know. Later, he listened to some music that told him to dress and do whatever made him happy which inspired him to go to school wearing what he did feel comfortable in: feminine clothing. Following from this he started experimenting with makeup and eventually saw it as part of his permanent look which allowed him to express himself in a way that made him feel confident and secure in who he was.
A YouTube opportunity later became available which was a gay collaboration channel called ‘Gays of the Week ’. Miles decided to make an audition video as the channel were looking for a new Friday and he was selected. After months of this positivity, Miles was given a 2 day suspension from school which made him get wrapped up in his own self-pity resulting in not graduating high school. His mother then kicked him out to his father in the town of Lompoc, California where he decided to occupy his time making YouTube videos which consisted of him doing things such as talking about his life and dyeing his hair.
Soon, he made his most-recognised video ‘Like Mah Status’ about how he hated the ‘LMS’ culture on the social-networking site, Facebook. This video gained an impressive ten million-plus hits which boosted his success as a YouTuber as he was able to make money and fly to places, buy wigs & hair extensions, see friends & family and go to popular conventions such as VidCon . At VidCon in 2012, he was able to meet YouTubers he had spent years watching (e.g. Jenna Marbles and Nicola Foti).
Since then, Miles Jai has left 'Gays of the Week' but continues to make YouTube videos and has since taken part in the filming of Second Class Citizens (2013) a documentary directed by YouTuber, producer and friend, Ryan James Yezak , as himself. He has also featured in Smosh's The Mythical Show, season 1, episode 4 on YouTube. A lot of people also see Miles as a role model in their own lives, as he seems to easily overcome the hate he receives for being a homosexual and cross-dresser. Associated with other big YouTube names like Tyler Oakley and Colleen Ballinger (also known as MirandaSings and PsychoSoprano ), Miles has since attended VidCon 2013 where he sponteneously featured on Tyler Oakley's panel and VidCon 2014 where he was part of the LGBT panel. Miles Jai is now (2015) looking to move to his own apartment in Los Angeles.
