Catherine Wayne’s Bio
Catherine Wayne, the internet celebrity who became known for her highly energetic and outgoing character, Boxxy, was born on April 28, 1992, in California.

She first began uploading videos on YouTube in January 2008 under the name boxxybabee. Thereafter, she posted other videos, including two shoutout videos for her friends on Gaia Online. These videos were liked so much that they were re-uploaded to i-am-bored.com, an online social media site, and on 4chan.
In 2009, Catherine made another video depicting her Boxxy character talking on several subjects and topics. The existence of these videos created haters who went out of their way to ensure its destruction. Various hacking incidents occurred after which there was a DoS attack on 4chan itself, invariably leading to the closing of the site for a while. Her attackers refocused their assault to YouTube by hacking her YouTube channel, going on to upload several remixes and parody videos all over the web.

Her alias changed from Boxxy to ANewHopeee on November 25, 2010, after posting a clip from the popular movie, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The edited video clip was a means of soliciting for her fans to help her recover her boxxybabee account which was hacked. Afterward, Boxxy Items went on sale on eBay towards the end of 2010.
