Having a family member who is a celebrity can change your whole life.
In 2020, my sister began posting makeup tutorials and dances on TikTok.
It was all for fun since we were stuck at home during the lockdown. This is when the app really took off, and many people found new careers. My sister had been working as a waitress before the pandemic. She was laid off in April 2020 and stuck at home. So, for fun, she started doing the videos and I helped with shooting content. Slowly, her channel took off, and by 2021, she had almost 500000 followers. Brand deals came along, and money flowed from her job. However, the other side of fame was we started feeling unsafe in our home, and chose to relocate. Our parents wanted us to find a safe place to stay, so we looked at this private beach community. The house we purchased was amazing, in a private gated community, but it needed a new heat pump. When we moved in, we thought the heat pump was in good condition. However, after a week of using it, we realized it was faulty. Mom contacted a HVAC business for assistance and they sent over an HVAC tech to take a look. He confirmed we needed a new heat pump, so we went with the best unit. Once we purchased the heat pump, the HVAC tech came back to install it in our new beach house. It’s amazing to think that something that my sister started to do as a hobby had changed all our lives.
