The ever-growing social giant which plays a crucial role in uplifting communities from across the world, launched the T-Talks series across the MENA region today. The series will feature stories of courage and determination from a unique cohort of curators and inspiring individuals.
The campaign’s first episode celebrates the grit and determination of Tina Chagoury and Sian Moss, breast cancer survivors who beat all odds and overcame the illness with the support of family and friends. Through this first episode, TikTok reiterates the recently passed Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While narrating her story, Tina Chagoury explained how TikTok is one of those platforms that reaches a massive young audience. “Breast Cancer Awareness shouldn’t be limited to just one month, detection is critical all year round. TikTok is where our voices need to be heard”.
