For any TikTok newbies, what is it that attracted you to the platform and what is it that you love most about it?
"Honestly when I first started tiktok it was still a joke and everyone was just posting random stuff and making fun of each other, I obviously felt the need to hop on it and my videos suckeddd. It started on a break from schoolI, I literally used to do nothing and post like 11 awful videos everyday. After that phase tiktok started to get super popular and I just carried on. I’ve always been a big social media kid but this was the first time I started to gain a proper following, which was weird but the best."
What has been your favourite dance or trend recently?
"At the moment I'm obsessed with people who are switching up their appearance, doing funky hairstyles and makeup stuff. I’ve got really into making those videos lately. The dancers are super cool as well, but that's defo not my journey, I look super possessed when I dance ._."
TikTok is famous for sending sounds / songs viral on there, which 5 tracks do you recommend we add to our playlist?

Finally, which is your favourite TikTok you've created so far and why?
"There was a recent one that blew up for me, it got 8 million views super quick and it was insane. Basically just me painting a blue clown thing on my face, I’m not sure why that's the one that's doing well but a few really big tiktokers commented so i guess people like it.'" WATCH HERE
