The Beginning of @ Tabithabrown on TikTok
In 2004, Tabitha Brown and husband Chance Brown, moved to Los Angeles in hopes of achieving her dreams of becoming an actress. While navigating the tough entertainment scene in the city, Tabitha Brown was in a number of notable films like Outrighteous, All Between Us, Helpless, and many more. It was not until late 2017 until Tabitha Brown got the recognition that she deserved. While stopping at Whole Foods on her break from Uber driving, Brown posted a video reviewing a sandwich that took the internet by storm. All around the country, people were posting their reaction video online for all to see.
Becoming an Influencer
In a turn of events, Brown found herself as a Brand Ambassador for Whole Foods just a week later, traveling around the country to talk about her turning to an all-vegan diet. A vegan diet, popular in today’s society, means cutting out all animal products from your food choices, and using ingredients that are more sustainable to both plants and animals. She used her growing Facebook platform to post her motivational videos along with numerous cooking tips on how to adapt your cooking to a vegan lifestyle.

For example, her video, which has over 16 million views, on how to make vegan bacon (don’t knock it till you try it!) intrigued viewers as she cut up strips of carrots and generally seasoned and baked them until crispy. She showed the viewers how crispy and bacon-like this vegetable can really be, and she can because that’s her business! For those who don’t know, Ms. @ TabithaBrown has a slew of catchphrases that her viewers love. So much so she turned it into merch!
