Kalamazoo Woman Gains 14k Tiktok Followers Sharing Simple Hacks
Today for #TiktokTuesday we're talking about Ms. Kierna Brown in Kalamazoo. Also known as @HeftyHelga on Tiktok.
Her profile description reads "Queer Michigan Trash" and as of this morning she has 14.5 thousand followers and about 19 thousand likes on her videos. That is impressive, yes, however I always love coming across locals doing what they can to help others.

Kierna is also, very clearly, passionate about civil rights, black lives matter, and the like. She's not just on the app ranting about why she's right, though. She provides educational resources and links so those who watch can further educate themselves.
Calling yourself "Michigan Trash" may seem like a self-dig to the outside world, but Kierna has been very open about her self love journey:
And is very quick to shut down any fat-shamers:
