Charli D’Amelio has come a long way in her short career. Already in January 2020 she got a contract from the Hollywood agency UTA. On March 25, 2020, she finally became the absolute leader on TikTok in terms of follower numbers: 41.4 million followers made her the most successful TikTok influencer worldwide.

Famous people often say clever sayings and although Charli D’Amelio is still very young at 16, she already has some famous quotes. Once she said:
- “Sometimes you just have to switch sides and move on.”
This shows that she is a person who does not think long about the past but is always moving forward. She can fully rely on the support of her parents and the judgment of her parents means a lot to her, as the following quote shows: “My parents have always made sure that I don’t post anything that I don’t want to see on the Internet. Because you never know what’s going to happen.” One or the other Internet user could also take this to heart.
Despite Charli D’Amelio’s success and probably her life’s sorrows, the 16-year-old is working towards her high school graduation like a normal teenager. Her parents in particular make sure that she has a life alongside TikTok, and that includes a normal school leaving certificate.

It’s hard to believe, but the slim American loves donuts. She could eat the round sweets every day, as she says herself. This passion also got her a deal with the fast food chain Dunkin’ Donuts and since then she has been enjoying the sweet treats even more often.
