Today’s transformation story is going to knock your socks off! In a little over two years, today’s guest has unleashed his superpower and inspired countless others to do the same. His name is Simba Van Gerpen and this is The YES Effect Show!
Simba is best known for his presence on TikTok, where he has over 3.4 million followers. He cosplays the Marvel character Deadpool in a unique, kid-friendly way, performing dances and skits. Armed with his Hello Kitty backpack and a pair of Crocs, he uses his incredible gift of physicality to entertain and inspire. He’s also a tireless advocate for others who want to break into the world of cosplay. He knows that it’s not how much you spend on your costume, but how you use it, that really matters.
However, just three years ago, Simba self-identified as shy and awkward around people, and he had no following at all on social media. When fires destroyed his hometown of Santa Rosa, his friends asked them to join them and cosplay to lift up kids’ spirits, and something truly clicked. He discovered what he wanted to do 24/7, then used this guiding light to build a life and career he truly loves.
