A 15-year-old Norwalk girl is on her way to social media stardom after acquiring more than five million followers on the video app TikTok.

Described by Urban Dictionary as “every guy’s TikTok crush,” Charli D’Amelio has garnered those followers on the platform since June.

Most of the teen’s short TikTok clips consist of her dancing and/or lip-syncing in her Norwalk bedroom. While she is an accomplished stage dancer, the dancing in her clips is simple, lighthearted and unchoreographed.

She has posted more than 300 clips to date, many of which have at least 35 million views.

Alessandro Bogliari, an expert on the platform, estimates that D’Amelio could make between $2,056 and $3,427 per post as her popularity grows.

Most recently, D’Amelio and her family hosted a meet and greet at the teen’s hometown dance studio, charging $100 per ticket for the “VIP experience.”

The event’s profits were donated to the Abilis Foundation, a charity that provides assistance to adults and children with developmental disabilities and their families in lower Fairfield County.

D’Amelio also stated in an interview that while she is currently pursuing internet fame, her ultimate goal is to be a professional dancer, as she has a decade of competitive dance experience.
