From starting out small to growing an extremely supportive fan base, a prospective career in modelling to how she uses the platform she’s been given, TikTok star Mishka Silva tells all.
From wanting to fit in to some advice that you may have needed to hear today, stick to the end to discover Mishka and what she stands for.
Life Before Fame
Mishka is just another high schooler, except she’s not. She is 15 years old and was born in Texas, but is currently living her best life in Los Angeles. She started gaining momentum on TikTok, and now, even hangs out with other social media influencers like Cynthia Parker, Mads Lewis, Indiana, Riley Lewis and many others, as seen on her vibrant Instagram feed.
She was encouraged by her father to experiment with social media. She tells us “I started social media when I was 12 and my dad really pushed me to do it and I honestly wasn’t really into it at the time.” She eventually learned that she was on the right path and now she’s still discovering new things about herself.
“I was more worried about fitting in with the people at school rather than doing what was best for me, but of course with the support and motivation from my mom and dad I was able to just go with the flow and see what I felt was best for me and this year at the age of 15 I have started figuring out who I am and what I want to do in life and how I want to get there, but I still have a lot to learn!”
Using Her Platform

She says that “my honest answer is, I would get education for the whole world, give homeless people a shelter, and pay for any troubles in the world and use the left over money to buy my family a really nice house and lastly, buy myself my dream wardrobe.”
She displays her passion for all things fashion and beauty and also uses social media as her creative outlet. “I try to use my platform to spread positivity and good vibes only and always giving confident energy to inspire people to not care what anyone thinks and just love yourself! I also love to showcase beauty on my platform and show my outfits or how I do my makeup or just doing things I love like singing and art and beauty of course.”

When asked about about how she deals with hate on social media, her response was “personally, I’m a really strong person and I’m able to just ignore the negative things people say about me and I try to focus more on all the supportive and nice comments people leave for me!”
When asked about the message she wishes to spread on her social media platforms, she was quick to convey the message about body positivity and that everyone is unique and special in their own way.
“I really want to spread the message to not be afraid of showing people who you are. Everyone is unique and so so so beautiful in their own way and it’s super important to not compare yourself to other people you see online because, you are you and no one else gets to be you!
You have one body for the rest of your life so you might as well love it instead of spending your time hating it! It’s easier said than done and I know that from experience but as soon as I stopped comparing myself to other people I started to love myself and who I am as a person!”
A Message on Self-Love and Fan Support
What advice would you give to somebody who struggles to love the self the way they are? “When you stop comparing yourself to other people and doing things you love and wearing whatever make you feel beautiful regardless of what people think , it’s when everything flips around and you realise how beautiful you really are!”
