Tess Marie Mata’s life ended in the Uvalde shooting, at age 10 she was one of the victims at Robb Elementary SchoolHowever, now his family will seek to make his dream come true, to be a star on TikTok.
As a tribute, Her family wants to make her little girl’s dream come true, one day to star in a viral video on the social network of short videos of Chinese origin. Unfortunately, the bullets took his life and he was never able to fulfill it.
Tess Mata was a 10-year-old fourth-grade girl who loved TikTok dance videos, Ariana Grande, the Houston Astros, and curling her hair, which is why her family wants to immortalize her as she would like.
The author of this campaign is his uncle, Robert Hillwho told CNN that she dreamed of one of her dance videos going viral on the social network TikTok, but had put off because users of the network must be at least 13 years old to create an account,
Hill said Tess recorded the videos and saved them to her mother, Veronica’s, account. “She had over 150 draft videos. We were checking them out and chatting about how she always dreamed of one of her dances going viral.”
Thus, albeit posthumously, Robert wants to fulfill the little girl’s dream. For this reason, he posted on TikTok a video of Tess Marie dancing to the song No Idea by Don Toliver, which has been used in different challenges on TikTok and has recently become one of the favorites of tiktokers.
“Can we honor your wish and make it viral?” the uncle asked. The video was posted on Veronica’s account last week, accompanied by the following message: “My sweet little girl. She was taken from us for a senseless act in a mass shooting. I never allowed Tess to post the videos of her because she was so small. But today I want to commemorate her by honoring her wish to become famous on TikTok. #uvaldestrong”.
Hill shared and reposted the video, to help him get more attention from his followers. As of Monday afternoon, the video posted on Hill’s account had more than 90,000 views, 33,000 likes and 2,000 comments.
Tess will be buried June 13 at Hillcrest Cemetery in Uvalde, according to Rushing-Estes-Knowles Funeral Home.
