Background Guide coming soon.
Welcome to the Hype House!
My name is Kaavya Thanigaivelan, and I am excited be your Chair for Tik Tok House! In this new age of media, Tik Tok has become a major platform catering to curious minds, young and old, around the world. Especially as consumers of this content, we seldom consider the inner workings of how certain content came to be or the influential powers behind creators' platforms. In this committee, you all will have the chance to step up to the role of popular creators and experience the competition and complexities of being an influencer!
About myself––I'm a junior at UC Berkeley studying Molecular and Cellular Biology and Public Policy. I love staying active through lifting, dance, and hiking, and my newest endeavor has been learning to cook! Since I'm originally from Nashville, I'm also always looking for opportunities to go out and explore the west coast. I look forward to meeting you all soon!Sincerely,
Chair, TikTok House
Ali HasanCrisis Director
I am very excited and honored to be your crisis director for TikTok House! I am a senior from central Indiana studying Political Science and Rhetoric. Outside of Model UN, you can catch me trying to expand my music taste, procrastinating studying for the LSAT, and (of course) wasting too much time on TikTok.
TikTok has cemented its place as one of the most important platforms of new media in the past couple years. It has been the driving force behind nearly all recent trends, been a medium for political action, and a frightening tool for disinformation and harassment. You, delegates, are at the helm of this platform as some of its biggest, most loved, and most hated creators. Season one of our show has just wrapped up, and now the burden is on you to maintain your brand. I look forward to seeing what you have in store...Best,
Crisis Director, TikTok House
