During the pandemic, Rany Mom, a Cambodian influencer, went from zero to almost a million followers on TikTok.
In a recent interview, he shared his story about how he started using the app and how it helped him spread positivity and the good news of Jesus.
At the beginning of the pandemic, Rany didn’t like TikTok and discouraged his niece from using it. However, when the lockdown forced him to stay indoors, he tried it. He began by sharing messages of encouragement, and his first video received 20,000 views, which motivated him to continue creating positive content.
Despite hearing about the negativity on the app, Rany saw an opportunity to bring light to the platform and interact with people in a way that showcased God’s love for them. He received comments from people inspired and encouraged by his videos; some even shared that his videos helped them through difficult times.
Rany’s followers are primarily from Cambodia, with a few from Thailand and the United States. His one-minute message videos provide encouragement and good insights to inspire people, especially during dark times.
What’s remarkable about Rany’s story is his willingness to use a social media platform that he initially disliked to spread positivity and faith to others. It’s a testament to the fact that there’s an opportunity for growth and making a positive impact in every challenge.
Rany’s story shows that you can make a difference by spreading positivity and kindness no matter where you are. It’s a powerful reminder that even in difficult times, we can find hope and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
