Both shared downright fascination with TikTok, as the world came into a halt because of the pandemic.

On the eve of Kalista’s 19th birthday, she decided to film their “girls’ night in” through TikTok. They were just being their usual selves, doing all the girly stuffs such as hair styling and make up tutorials, and boy — Worthy is a natural!

“When it comes to Worthy’s skills, they honestly just come to her naturally,” Kalista shared. “She is so smart and so attentive, so she just watched our momma and I doing our hair and makeup and wanted to do the same!”

Their now viral TikTok entry shows Worthy fixing her big sister’s shirt and adjusting her necklace, and doing some magic in her hair. All but simple tricks, yet it had created a deep, meaningful impact in the hearts of the whole TikTokverse!

“She’s just such a little perfectionist, she just wants to fix you up, and make sure everything’s OK and every little detail’s perfect,” Kalista happily shared.

With such a positive response from millions of viewers, Kalista and Worthy had truly taken TikTok by storm, encouraging them to create more content that can send good vibes to everyone.


“On a platform such as TikTok where every other swipe is hate or opposition, people get to pause on our page to breathe and experience the joy that is Worthy,” Kalista shared proudly.

Worthy is indeed a breath of fresh air in a hurting, cynical world!
