Q1: Where did you come up with the name “WebbzyJR?”
A1: The name Webbzy originates from my last name Webb. The JR portion has a double meaning. The first of the two more obvious: Junior. I grew up the baby of the family out of all my first cousins and siblings. The second and actual reason I chose JR is for my mother. I lost my mother to lung cancer in 2017. She taught me how much love I am capable of giving to people, how to be positive when things get crazy, how to be unapologetically myself. Her initials were JR, so this is a homage to her.
Q2: How long have you been streaming for?

That is something that I never expected and it is so special to me.
Q5: What has been the biggest challenge in your streaming career so far?

Q6: What has been your favorite on screen memory so far?

A14: My all time favorite movie is Interstellar. I LOVE space. It helps provide me clarity in life. Interstellar is a reflection on the value of life in general. It highlights how small we are, how little we know. It almost makes the things that people get caught up in seem not worth the energy. Life is so wonderful and we are lucky to be here. This movie only further solidifies that for me.
