JaMill and the courses they took in college
According to their merch site, Mandirigma Shop, Jayzam is currently taking Industrial Engineering at Technology Institute of the Philippines. Camille Trinidad, on the other hand, is a graduate of Divina Pastora College with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing Management.

They take their jobs as YouTubers seriously.
The couple's popularity pretty much grew overnight, which can be extremely overwhelming for anyone. But their humble beginnings is something they will never forget, and is one way for these content creators to ~stay grounded~.
“Sa amin, overwhelming ang nangyari kasi isang tulog ko, paggising namin sikat na kami… [so] may nag-advise sa amin: ‘Sikat na kayo. Marami nang nanunuod sa inyo. Be responsible.’
"So yun yung nasip namin na kailangan namin: Maging responsable ka sa kung among meron ka,” Jayzam Manabat said in an interview with Inquirer.

How did JaMill meet?
The couple met on Facebook after Jayzam became a fan of Camille's Musical.y posts and pictures. He would often like and comment on her posts, which eventually led to them talking and meeting in person.
Curious about how they took the leap? They also vlogged about the moment they became ~official~.
They've collaborated with some of the biggest stars on YouTube
In an interview, Camille has revealed that she also dreams of doing a collab with her idol, Solenn Heussaff, while Jayzam dreams of working with another Kapuso star: Michael V.

Aside from vlogging, JaMill's also into gaming and have even ventured into music.
In 2020, they released a track produced under Star POP called "Tayo Hanggang Dulo".
"The song talks about their personal journey as a couple.
Magkaibang mundo pinagtagpo
Tinadhana kahit na magkalayo
Kay layo ng pinagmulan
Pinaglapit ng pagmamahalan
Mahal kita, mahal mo rin ako
Habambuhay na ito, dasal ko sa kanya
Ikaw ang blessing ko sa buhay kong ito sabay tayo
Ngingiti sa umagang magkasama
Tayo hanggang dulo"
To make ~quality~ content, Jamill's rule is to stick to who they are and to not compare themsevles to others.
“Simple lang po. Hindi naman po namin kinukumpara iyong sarili namin.
"Basta lahat po ng nagsusumikap sa industriya, e, pare-parehas tayong magkita sa taas. Magtulungan tayo at hindi naman po kami nakikipag-kumpetisyon sa kung kanino man.
“Kung kinakailangan nila ang tulong namin, magbibigay kami,” they said an interview with PEP.ph.
