Who was Addison Rae before TikTok?

Addison Rae’s career got an assist from a very, very famous friend.

With fans making fun of the He’s All That trailer and judging Addison Rae’s singing ability, the life of a TikTok star doesn’t always seem to be the most fun. After joining the world of TikTok in 2019, Addison Rae has become so famous that everyone knows who she is, and with her latest acting role, she’s getting even more buzzworthy.

Just like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have a high net worth, Addison Rae has made a lot of money since becoming part of TikTok in June 2019. She has become super famous ever since, but what was she like before fame? Let’s take a look at who Addison Rae was.

Big Dreams

Addison Rae is friends with Kourtney Kardashian, which definitely proves that the now 20-year-old has made it big.

Addison was a cheerleader when she was in high school, according to Tvovermind.com. In June of 2018, Addison went to the Universal Cheerleaders Association All-American camp.

Addison had broadcast journalism aspirations, according to The List. Addison said, “My focus for college was broadcasting and TV commercial work. Because of TikTok and moving to Los Angeles, I have been able to do the things I have always dreamed of such as being on ESPN and working with brands.”

It looks like TikTok has totally and completely changed Addison Rae’s life and as she explained, she is going after her big dreams.

According to The List, Addison also has a dance background. She started dancing when she was six years old and has a lot of experience with movement. She was also part of Shreveport Dance Academy. 

According to Insider.com, Addison had 1 million TikTok followers in October of 2019, and Addison realized that staying at college wasn’t the right decision. Addison said, “I remember that’s when it changed for me. I knew I wanted to take it more seriously and expand it to other platforms. I uploaded a video to YouTube and got really active on Instagram” and she said goodbye to Louisiana State University.

Addison shared with Interview Magazine that while she didn’t predict the amount of fame and attention that she has had in the past few years, she did want to be in “entertainment.” Addison explained to the publication, “I’ve always been interested in entertainment, and I love speaking and movies and posting and things like that. I always knew that I was going to do something in the realm of entertainment or acting, but I didn’t necessarily know that it would come at this speed. I was in college last year studying journalism, and then this all started happening last December.”
