TikTok is taking the social media world by storm. And we’re excited to introduce a lot of amazing female creators on this app.
The short-form video platform’s heavy focus on entertainment can be credited for its success. The app has taken creativity, inspiration, and entertainment to the next level with videos, live streams, music, sounds created by users, filters, creative effects, and more. TikTok’s success is transforming the social media landscape by giving users a platform to freely express themselves in every way and the ability to shine as the singer, actress, comedian, dancer, artist, teacher, and whatever else they always dreamed to be.
TikTok Explained: Getting to Know the Fastest-growing Platform
Other social media platforms have noticed the app’s popularity and have tried to integrate similar entertaining features into their own app. Instagram, for example, created a video feature called Reels, that allows users to upload short videos with music and original sound. Many Instagram users use the feature to post their TikToks on their Instagram page. YouTube has also joined the bandwagon with YouTube Shorts, a feature that functions like TikTok, complete with full-screen videos, vertical scrolling, likes, and comments. There’s no denying TikTok’s influence over their tech competitors.
Who would’ve known that the dance-filled app adored by Gen Z would eventually be embraced by professionals, influencers, and brands?! We love learning the latest dance moves from young creatives, those funny TiktTok challenges, and scrolling down our “For You” page for laughs, but we can’t help but notice successful women on the app who’ve grown their TikTok influence through their talents, skills, and expertise. We’re always inspired by influential women who share their gifts with the world through their platforms, and we’re so happy to see them flourishing on TikTok as well. Scrolling through their TikTok feed, you can instantly feel how passionate they are about sharing their stories to the world.
Among the most popular TikTok creators are these amazing women who entertain, educate, and inspire their audience and whose positive impact can’t be denied:

Remember Bill Nye, “the science guy”? If there were to be a female version of him, it would have to be Sarah Habibi! Her fun bits of science facts and interesting experiments are worth watching every second. This female creator has a PhD in Molecular Biology and uses her passion for science and expertise to entertain and educate her audience. In many of her videos, she interestingly explains the science behind many things such as poison, shampoo, slime, and frog eggs! In her bio, she calls herself “your TikTok teacher” and prides herself on being an Arab creator. She currently has a following of 116.1K with over 3 million likes. Dr. Habibi definitely knows how to bring the fun to science and with her educational videos, we don’t feel guilty for binge-watching her TikTok videos (because we’re learning 😉 ).
This fabulous woman captured the world with her sweet, southern spirit and delicious vegan recipes. Actress, mom, and vegan, Tabitha offers the world so much value through her love for food and her contagious personality. On her account, she shares easy-to-make vegan dishes that will seriously make you reconsider your dietary choices. Tabitha lights up her followers’ day with fun cook-with-me live streams and captures hilarious moments with her family. Anyone who knows this female creator can recite her common phrases flavored with her southern twang: “Very good”, “Cause that’s your business” and her famous line at the end of every video, “Have the most amazing day. But even if you can’t have a good one, don’t you dare go messin’ up somebody else’s!”
Her TikTok success has landed her a collaboration with McCormick, where she created her own seasoning called Sunshine. Her audience showed immense support, causing Sunshine seasoning to sell out in 39 minutes! We don’t know if we love her personality or vegan dishes more, but we do know you won’t regret following her, so be sure to follow her on TikTok and try a recipe!
