Tameka Nicole Oglesby is Marcus’s big sister. As the YouTuber opened up in his interview, he was the smallest kid in the family, and his older sisters, including Tameka, pampered him.

The woman is single as of now. She lives in Charlotte, NC. She has warm relationships with her popular brother.

He has another older sister, too. Her name is not known to the wide audience.


Now he is a famous social media star and a bright woman with long multi-colored hair. He has more than 400k subscribers at his YouTube channel “Lynn Spirit” and about 660k followers on Instagram. Now it’s hard to believe that in his young years he was just an awkward bullied boy with a serious health disorder.

His real name is Marcus Lynn Oglesby. He was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. He is the youngest kid and the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Oglesby.

From the first days of his life, the boy was different from the others. He had a rare genetic disease -ectodermal dysplasia. This condition influences almost everything – the boy had no hair and no teeth, he was very slim and his lips were too big. Besides, his skin was very dry.

No need to say that Marcus was bullied. Life was not kind to him at first, and he even tried to commit suicide. But in 2013 he opened for himself a great way out – social networks.

Thus, the unhappy man Marcus Oglesby turned into the beautiful self-confident woman Lynn Spirit. He chose this nickname, not by chance – Lynn is Marcus’ middle name and “Spirit” means his spiritual inner world.

Now Marcus blesses the moment when he decided to start the channel on YouTube. “Social media helps people to express themselves and to be accepted”, he told in a rare interview. By the way, he started making money – his only source of wealth is the income from his social media accounts and selling off his merchandise goods. His merch is sold in the online store, named “Girl You See That Glitter”.

In spite of his incredible popularity, Marcus is still single. He dreams to meet a great person in the nearest future and he hopes, that person would have a chocolate skin color. The YouTuber doesn’t have kids and doesn’t plan to adopt them. But he considers his two nephews (his sister’s kids) and his sons.
