Why do you think TikTok is the right platform for your content or why do you continue to create and share on TikTok?
I continue because I think there are many more conversations and laughs that I can share with my followers.
What is your favorite TikTok you have made to date and why?
I don’t think I have a certain favorite — I really do enjoy all of my content because it’s authentic to me.
What does progress look like to you?
To me, I think that progress is the action of rededicating yourself everyday to the betterment of society, and making sacrifices so the spaces around you feel more comfortable in the society you’re living in.
How does the Black TikTok community uplift you?
The kind of content I make is kind of a mix between comedy and social issue awareness. Throughout my journey on TikTok I think the Black community has uplifted me a lot. Whenever I post a video they’re always there to have a conversation with me about their experience. It’s just a great place.
Any advice for new creators?
Don’t get lost in the trends, continue to be yourself.
What does being a Trailblazer mean to you?
I think it means that we have the opportunity to use our voices.
Who are some Black creators that everyone should be following/watching?
I think that one of the creators that everyone should be following is @anania00. I love him so much.
