How did you get started creating on TikTok, and what was the first TikTok video you shared/published?
I first downloaded TikTok because some of my friends told me about it and I saw a lot of people sharing funny videos. I made a couple videos myself, but I mostly stuck to watching. I found myself spending too much time on the app to not be creating, so I figured I'd give it another chance. I had the perfect idea and I just rolled with it.
Why do you think TikTok is the right platform for your content or why do you continue to create and share on TikTok?
The process behind what I do is nowhere near as interesting as the delivery. The development behind the video is a strenuous process, but when it's all condensed into a one minute video it's fast-paced and exciting.
What is your favorite TikTok you have made to date and why?
My sapnap pt 2 video – it was really fun to make and the energy and everything was in sync. I also really enjoyed the video on pahari, it was very highly anticipated.
What lights a fire in you?
Something that lights a fire in me is seeing people appreciate the time I put in crafting my videos. Knowing that I've left a positive impact on someone else's life really motivates me to continue creating more interesting and innovative content.
Any advice for new creators?
Maximize the effort you put into a video. If it feels bland, put a little more time into it. Secondly, if your video blows up randomly, you need to analyze what elements of that video caused it to go viral.
What does being a Trailblazer mean to you?
Being a trailblazer means I'm a selected representative of my community through my content. I show my people that there are ways to make STEM exciting, and I think it motivates people to explore other career paths they might’ve never thought about.
