Azra “Azzy” Bajami is a Canadian YouTube influencer, singer, and gamer popularly called AzzyLand. In 2019, she made the women proud for being the only female member of the top 10 most-viewed YouTubers worldwide.
Before her social media popularity, Azzy was a renowned cosplayer. Azzy made all her intricate costumes by hand, leading her to be discovered by the mainstream media and invited to showcase her work on national TV. Her cosplay grabbed the attention of many people and scored her an appearance on a popular YouTube channel.
During one interview, she received an offer to co-host a celebrity biography YouTube channel. She accepted the offer and later realized her love for creating YouTube content. Hence, she launched her own channel and uploaded content on the side.
However, as a cosplayer, medical student, and YouTube host, Azzy only had little time for her own channel. It wasn’t until she stopped medical school to focus on her YouTube career did her channel took off. AzzyLand posts various YouTube content, from fashion hauls to reaction videos, challenges, vlogs, and more.
Aside from being YouTube and cosplay smart, Azzy has always been intellectually brilliant, completing a double Honors degree in the Bachelor of Science majoring in both Chemistry and Biology. She aimed to help other people, so she worked on becoming a medical doctor.
Unfortunately, she had a hard time coping with the job’s demands and nature, being an empath who is unable to detach herself from others’ pain.
While she did not become a doctor, Azzy feels fulfilled in helping others in a different manner. This was not what her parents wanted her to do, but they eventually accepted her job as a content creator.
AzzyLand’s rise to fame amassed her 13.3M subscribers on YouTube, 4.6M followers on TikTok, 2M on Instagram, and 188.6K on Twitter.

Extra Life Partnership
