Early Life and Career Beginnings
Early on, Simmi didn’t have a clear direction in terms of her career. After completing her education, she started by trying out various jobs to see what worked for her.

However, this was not enough for her, and she started looking for opportunities once more. One of her last jobs before embarking on her YouTube journey was at CVS Pharmacy, where she worked as a pharmacy technician.
Transition to Acting and YouTube

Just for her family and friends’ entertainment, she created a short comedy sketch segment on her Facebook page, which surprisingly got a lot of positive attention.

Her channel called TheSimszter started sometime in 2015, and she began by posting short comedy sketch videos she created.
Rise to Fame

One of her most popular series is her Reality videos, in which she tackles expectations vs. reality in a comedic manner, especially “Expectations vs. Reality: Skinny Jeans”.
Many in her audience are also interested in her lifestyle as an Indian-American living in the US.
Her interactions with her mother and the comedic videos they create have become some of her biggest hits.

She also started doing videos about her life as a brown woman in the US.
