But before the fame and the money, he was just a normal immigrant kid born to working-class parents who moved to America in 2002. David was born on 23 July 1996 in Kosice, Slovakia, and he was one of four children of his parents. He was only six when his parents decided to uproot their entire family and move to America.

Heeding to his parents’ wishes, David moved out instead of going to college, and Los Angeles was the place where he wanted to explore the next phase of his life and career.

By 2016, Vine went out, and most of the popular Vine celebrities started to jump ship and started creating content on YouTube. When most of the Vine stars used large sums of money for elaborate videos and shooting on sets, David was lost. He did not possess the kind of money others did and then entered Liza Koshy, who introduced him to vlogging.
It was efficient, cost-effective, and all he needed to do was do an interesting thing while filming. David loved vlogging, and it didn’t feel like a job for him, which is why his videos are so much fun. The vlogging channel took off, and David started The Vlog Squad with Liza and other his other Vine friends.
David Dobrik and his friends are always together in the videos on YouTube.
David’s signature four-minute twenty-second videos were a hit, and even more, people started to subscribe to his YouTube channel. By the end of 2017, he was the owner of two successful YouTube channels, a hit podcast and award recognition.
The vlogger’s star shone so bright, he was even asked to voice a character in the new Angry Birds sequel, and he also hosted the 2019 Teen Choice Awards with Lucy Hale.
Why David Dobrik, Cannot Leave USA?
David Dobrik is protected by DACA which is why if he leaves the US he cannot come back for ten years.
Looking at the lifestyle of David and how much money he makes, you would not be wrong in assuming he’s been to almost all the amazing vacation spots of the world, but the truth is he’s never been out of the USA since he first got there at the age of six.
David was on GQ’s going undercover segment on YouTube when he answered the question about why he is not able to venture outside of America. David is not a citizen of the United States, and he was brought into the country as a child, which means he is protected by the DACA act and this is exactly the reason why he technically can leave, but will not be allowed back into the country once he does.

David explained on the YouTube video, “I can’t leave because I’m protected by DACA and basically I can leave, I can go right now, but I can’t come back. I can’t re-enter the country for, like, another ten years if I leave the country. So I’m not a citizen. I don’t have a visa.”
The vlogger is not a citizen of the US, and there is an easy fix to the whole thing, he can get married to someone who is already a citizen of the US. Well, David did marry someone who is the citizen of the US, but it was for a prank, so, guess he blew he chance.
David joked about getting engaged to his assistant, Natalie, though, “The only thing I can do where I can leave the country and come back is if I get married. But Natalie and I are not engaged, so that’s not happening anytime soon, but who knows fingers crossed.”

Falling in Love with Liza Koshy

She was also the reason he started vlogging, and while the two were working together, they also fell in love with one another, and the two were dating by November 2015.
David gets into a lot of trouble and looks so comfortable with his friends, but when it comes to talking and flirting with girls, he is like a shy kid, which is why it was amazing to see the chemistry between Liza and David. “Never have I ever gotten so comfortable being around a person as quickly as I did with,” David gushed about his then-girlfriend during their first anniversary. “I probably sound so repetitive, talking about how lucky I am.”
