KarinaOMG was born Karina Calor, on March 23, 2007, in Canada. After spending her early years in Canada, Karina shifted to Spain, with her family, in 2016. The reason behind the move was that Karina was allergic to cold weather.

Reportedly, in 2017, Karina was studying at Spain’s ‘Sotogrande International School.’
Social-Media Fame: From Karina to “KarinaOMG”
Karina began her social-media career on November 1, 2015, with the toy-review channel ‘FUNwithKARINA.’ It is believed that her parents had encouraged Karina and her brother to start their careers on ‘YouTube.’ Karina was just 7 years old when she created her first ‘YouTube’ video. Karina was also the first member of her family to upload a ‘YouTube’ video.
Soon, however, Karina shifted her focus from toy reviews to video games. She thus launched the ‘YouTube’ channel titled ‘GamerGirl,’ on April 23, 2016. The channel currently has 3.87 million subscribers and over a billion views. The channel mostly hosts content related to games such as ‘Roblox,’ ‘The Sims4,’ and ‘Minecraft.’
She played ‘Roblox’ minigames with “YouTuber” ‘EthanGamerTV’ for one of her videos. Some of her videos, such as ‘Going to Prison in an OBBY! Escape the Prison + Rob The Bank OBBY,’ have earned more than 20 million views.
Her initial toy review channel (created in 2015) now has a new name, ‘Karina Kurzawa.’ Karina reportedly renamed it in July 2018. The channel now showcases content related to makeup, fashion, travel, and product reviews. Over the years, it has earned over 1.06 million subscribers and has managed to garner more than 39 million views.
Along with her brother, Ronald, Karina manages another ‘YouTube’ channel, titled ‘SIS vs BRO.’ The channel was launched on March 3, 2016. It is primarily a competitive-challenge channel featuring Karina and her younger brother, Ronald, competing against each other for various challenges.
Their series of videos titled ‘Gummy vs Real’ were some of their most-watched videos in 2017. The video titled ‘NIGHTTIME ROUTINE!! SCHOOL DAY vs WEEKEND’ managed to garner 90 million views. Another video that became quite popular was ‘Blindfolded Slime Prank Challenge Gone Wrong.’ They also posted a few vlogs from their vacation to Thailand. The collaborative channel now has 4 billion views and more than 11 million subscribers. Ronald also has an individual gaming channel called ‘RonaldOMG’ and a separate self-titled channel.
Karina has also managed to earn around 395 thousand followers on ‘Instagram’ and 1,402 followers on ‘Twitter.’ She is followed by more than 7 thousand people on ‘Facebook.’
Family with a “YouTuber” Dad
Karina’s parents are of Polish descent. Karina’s father, Freddy Kurzawa, is a popular “YouTuber” himself. He is best known by his online pseudonym, “FreddyGoesBoom.” He joined ‘YouTube’ on May 15, 2016 and has already garnered more than 265 million views and more than a million subscribers. Freddy posts videos of himself playing video games. He mostly uploads videos related to ‘Minecraft’ and ‘Fortnite.’
Karina’s mother’s identity, however, remains unknown. Owing to the fact that her mother remains absent from her (and her brother’s) videos, her fans once started to speculate that her mother had probably passed away earlier.
She has a younger sister named Aria. Her younger brother, Ronald, is a popular social-media star and collaborates with her.
Her social-media career is managed by her parents.
