Instagram star Natalie Mariduena Wiki
Natalie ‘Mariduena’ Noel was born in Illinois, USA, on 1 December 1996 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds American nationality. She is a social media personality and a psychologist, but perhaps best known for being the sidekick of famous YouTuber David Dobrik.
Childhood and education
Natalie was raised as an only child in Illinois by her father who is the owner of his own small company, and her mother who is working as a psychotherapist.
She was very active growing up, and started playing soccer while attending elementary school – she played defensive midfielder for the school’s team, and won many matches with them. She went on to enroll at Vernon Hills High School where she first met David Dobrik, and the two became inseparable. They matriculated in 2014 and David moved to Los Angeles to work on his career as a YouTuber, while Natalie enrolled at Lake Forest College where she studied psychology – while there, she played women’s varsity soccer, and was a member of the Alpha Phi International Women’s Fraternity (she also served as their social chair).
Natalie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2018.
Not long before graduation, Natalie was contacted by David who wanted her to work for him on his YouTube videos, and although she said ‘no’ at first, she eventually decided to give it a try. She got to enjoy working with David on his YouTube channel, which is currently counting over 18 million subscribers, and Natalie can be seen featured in many videos found on the channel.
In one of the interviews she has given, Natalie explained that she likes working for Dobrik so much that she wouldn’t work for anyone else, no matter how much they would pay her.
Working for David has a lot of good sides. She is currently living in his mansion, and gets to attend wild parties and festivals with him as well as appear alongside him at a variety of award events. She has travelled with him all around the USA and David has described her as ‘the hardest working person on the team’ and to say thanks, he bought her Mercedes and Bronco cars for two birthdays.
Natalie has been working for David since October 2017, while she has also just recently started working as a Treasurer at Disposable.
David has also contributed to Natalie’s career as a social media personality, and has helped her gather over 4.1 million followers on her Instagram account, while she’s uploaded around 350 pictures onto the platform. She is also active on Twitter, where she has gathered around 600,000 followers, while she can also be found on Snapchat.
Love life and boyfriend
In 2019, Natalie broke up with her boyfriend Shawn Nelson whom she dated for several years. The man is a non-celebrity and what appears to be the reason behind the split was jealousy after she started spending too much time with David. There are also rumors circulating the internet that Natalie and David are romantically linked, because of the chemistry they show in their videos and because the lie detector test they took in September 2019 showed that the two had feelings for one another.
Even though they keep saying that they are only close friends, it is still widely believed that Natalie and David are dating.
There are also rumors circulating the internet that Natalie is currently in a relationship with the Instagram star Zane Hijazi, but this hasn’t been confirmed. As of August 2020, Natalie appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
