Tiktok influencers

TikTok has taken the world by storm, and if you’re anything like the millions of people over the age of 22, joining the platform known for dancing videos most popular among Gen Zers was intimidating. After fighting the idea of joining for a long time, millions joined the platform as anonymous users. Many were not posting but found themselves spending what seemed like an endless amount of time on the app, scrolling through 30 and 60-second videos for hours.

On the platform, you can find several Latinx influencers who have a deep understanding of our culture and create content so relatable that it feels like they’re extended primos. Below are a few favorites you should follow!

Fernanda Cortes | @fernandacortesx

We love a proud Latina and Fernanda Cortes showcases her cultura proudly! Giving us the chisme on all the iconic celebrities we grew up watching and listening to (yes, think Ivy Queen and Jenny Rivera), she highlights the stories of badass Latinas and brings the party to Tik Tok with her playlists and takes on current pop culture. Did we mention she’s a huge Bad Bunny fan? Give her a follow, you won’t regret it.


Okay this one made me feel old 👵🏻 #spanishmusic #tiktoklatino #latina #latino #latinmusic

Vanessa Pena | @vanessafpena

Vanessa’s authenticity has gained her a huge following and it’s no surprise since she takes her followers on a behind the scenes journey of her life. She talks about everything from mental health and gender identity to her day-to-day struggles and wins. She shares her life all while using comedy to help us relate to her and the issues that we all know too well. Vanessa does it with such authenticity that it allows us to feel as though we are not alone and in many ways, she feels like the cool cousin we are always looking forward to hanging out with.

Vanessa Sirias | @vanessacsirias

We all love good drama and with Vanessa Sirias bringing that to Tik Tok with her skits, we’re here to stay. Mimicking the problematic Karen and her racist tendencies, her comedic relief gives us something to laugh about when it seems like there’s a new racist white woman making the news every day. Vanessa is a must follow as we continue to condemn racism but need a good laugh to keep our spirits up to keep up the fight!

Jackie | @gordacorajuda

Jackie is the amiga who is always keeping it real and teaching us things that make us a better person. She highlights racism in the Latinx community and how we can do better. The way in which she explains social justice issues helps us not only learn and understand, but also grasp concepts that we can share with our familia and friends when they start talking nonsense.

I grew up being told, “you can’t do that because you’re a girl” or “your brother can because he’s a boy” and I hated hearing that. It’s been something that has tormented me my entire life.
