From making videos to pass the time to taking my followers through the different stages of my life, it’s been a blessing to connect and share those moments with an amazing community. To be a part of the inaugural ‘In The Mix’ from TikTok is an honor — being in the middle of it, bringing behind the scenes from these massive artists, creators, and fans, is going to be incredible." — Josh “BRU” Brubaker
