CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – A Virginia teen gains popularity online, attracting over a million eyes to his TikTok page.
Tamarius Washington’s TikTok account exploded overnight.
He grew up in Charlottesville, where his love of personal finance was born.
Since graduating, he took the information he learned to TikTok, where he gained more than 34,000 followers tuned into financial advice.
Washington says he spent hours researching to gather tips for others to become financially literate.
“If you break down the numbers, you think 1.7 million people saw my face, saw my video. That’s just crazy to think about, coming from a small town like Charlottesville… that doesn’t happen often,” he said.
He says to help people better, he does research on YouTube, listens to finance podcasts, and reads a lot of books on financial education.
