During an interview with The Chicago Tribune, she said that she always turn to Youtube while going to bed which helped her a lot. Then she mentioned that if she ever creates a YouTube channel, she would do ASMR.
"When I was a film major, I was always into YouTube; I loved the internet culture; I loved everything about ASMR. I was so familiar with the community and who was in it and the little nuances. I was like, 'If I’m going to start a YouTube channel, I think I would do ASMR.'"
"I didn’t think anyone would like what I had to offer, but I knew I wanted to take it seriously."
On 18th June 2016, Gibi created her YouTube channel under the username Gibi ASMR and started posting ASMR videos. Soon she became one of the most prominent ASMRtists.

Along with popularity, Gibi also received criticism. In 2018, Youtube removed ads from her post stating that her videos were not ad-friend due to the sexually suggestive content.

There are certainly arguments for adding sexuality into your ASMR; people add their flairs to whatever they do, whether it's to get more views or whether it's because that is what they genuinely like."
"But at its core, ASMR is not sexual. Like somebody drawing your picture and staring at your face is intimate, not sexual."

As an avid cosplayer, she also has a second channel where she posts gaming videos like ‘Overwatch,’ ‘Life is Strange,’ ‘The Sims 4’, ‘Dream Daddy,’ ‘Overcooked,’ ‘Neopets,’ ‘Old School Runescape,’ and ‘Pokemonz.’

Gibi was too nervous about approaching him and only watched him from afar. Interestingly, things took a turn after her friend organized a group dinner at a Naf Naf restaurant where Ben was also present. Her friend played the part of cupid and told Ben about Gibi’s crush on him.
While having a little chit-chat and dinner, Gibi realized she was allergic to sesame, due to which she had to sprint out to buy anti-allergy medicine, Benadryl. Ben got concerned about her, but after returning, Gibi and Ben quickly bonded over no time.

Soon, Gibi realized her feeling towards Ben and broke up with her boyfriend. It took some time for them to be together, but after they got together, they were inseparable.
The couple got engaged and later exchanged their wedding ring in October 2019.
