Thrift hauls, Y2K fashion, and now living alone diaries—these are the things content creator Ashley Garcia is widely known for. ICYDK, the 23-year-old vlogger has been a staple on YouTube's local fashion and beauty scenes. She's also one of Candy's resident style icons! But before Ashley had even found her footing on YT or gained a sizable social media presence, she was like any other creative with dreams larger than life.

In this exclusive Candy Firsts episode with Ashley, she fondly looks back on her milestones: her first viral YouTube video, first designer purchase, first-ever Candy feature, among others. She also shares an anecdote of her first date with Sean Roxas, her long-time beau. While it's no secret that Ashley always loved creating videos before the word "vlogger" even became a mainstream term, there's virtually no info on why she made the most out of thrifting-related content like thrift hauls and thrift flips at the beginning of her YouTube career. Luckily, we got an answer from our favorite ukay-ukay queen herself.

Find out what Ashley said and get to know more about her through our Candy Firsts video below:
