17 TikTok Creators That've Taught Me More Than I Ever Learned In School

TBH, sometimes I learn more from 10 minutes on TikTok than I did in an entire high school class.

Hey, y'all! I'm Angelica, your friendly neighborhood Gen Z'er! If I'm being honest here, I've spend a pretty big chunk of my time in quarantine (okay, and before that too but shhhh) scrolling endlessly through TikTok.

I've come across tons of super talented and creative humans on this wonderful app that, tbh, have probably taught me more in 60 seconds than I learned in a whole semester of some classes.

Well, I decided to share some of the very best TikTokers that've graced my FYP and taught me a thing or two I didn't know before. Here are some of these super talented creators:

1. This is Tabitha, who teaches her followers how to make easy, delicious vegan dishes and is everyone's honorary TikTok Mom™️:
