Janice and Sonia have fond memories of their childhood. When asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Their answers were a variation of teacher, painter and at one point in time even a shop-keeper.
In 2008 the duo discovered the world of YouTube. Fascinated by the concept of connecting with an unseen audience all over the world, they created their first account under the name “Jayesslee”.
The subscribers steadily increased over a year and in 2009 when the two saw a sudden boost in followers after their viral hit cover of Tamia’s “Officially Missing You” (currently over 12 million hits).
Janice and Sonia have made various radio/television appearances on popular programs such as “E! News Asia”, “Channel V” and the “MTV show”.
In 2013 Jayesslee made YouTube history by reaching 1 million subscribers and enjoyed a long period of being Australia’s number one most subscribed channel.
