Fall River’s Amiah Rondon may be the next Charli D’Amelio thanks to her growing TikTok page, and the best part is that she is using positivity and acceptance to gain her following.
Amiah, 13, has been dealing with hearing loss since the age of six, and after teaching herself American Sign Language (ASL), she decided to use her TikTok platform to bring awareness to ASL and be a model of positivity and kindness for other teenagers.
Amiah decided to do what everyone else did during the pandemic, and that was committing to TikTok.
“She wanted to reach out to people and make connections with them,” said her mom, Amanda Rothwell. Rothwell administrates Amiah’s page and is amazed at how successful her daughter’s page has become in under two years.
“People just love her and her positivity,” Rothwell said.
During the pandemic, Amiah was simply being herself on TikTok, creating content that really resonated with other 13-year-olds. When she decided to open up about her hearing loss journey, that’s when things really took off.
