My real life and my TikTok life are completely separate. I feel like it doesn’t affect it in any way though. I don’t know, I don’t think about it too much, it doesn’t really matter to me. My followers mean a lot to me, but in reality it just doesn’t get to my head.

To not take it too seriously and to not let numbers and stuff go to your head because it can really affect you, and to just have fun.
