In an interview with NBC News, D'Amelio revealed that she did not expect to receive massive attention from the public and gain millions of followers on social media.
"It's kind of crazy to think about it. I never thought that this would happen. Like, everyone thinks, 'Oh, that's so cool,' but when it's actually happening - it's crazy to think about, 'Why do people want to follow me? What am I doing different than everyone?' It's just crazy," Charli shared.
With her sudden rise to fame, the TikTok star acknowledged how the platform helped her showcase her dancing skills, which she has been passionate about since she was 3 years old.
"TikTok is definitely a great place to show people that dancing is something that I do, and it's very fun for me," she furthered.
