With millions of followers on YouTube and TikTok, the internet sensation shares the reality of living with Tourette’s syndrome. In fact, she is one of the most popular creators in the U.K. Today, she is gradually moving beyond her internet fame and taking a shot at writing. Does her courage lift your spirits? There is a lot more about her that you should know. Let’s begin!
Evie-Meg Field was born on July 22, 2000, in England. Unfortunately, not much is known about her early childhood or family. However, some sources suggest that her father’s name is Lain Field. She completed her primary education at New College Durham. After completing her primary education, she attended East Houghall College in Durham, England, and pursued a course in agriculture.
However, she had a troubled life since childhood as she suffered from tics and seizures. She also has Tourette’s syndrome, which is a nervous system disorder that involves uncontrollable unwanted sounds or repetitive movements, such as shrugging shoulders, repeatedly blinking the eyes, or outbursts of swearing (scientifically called “coprolalia”). Undeterred by these issues, she began sharing videos on TikTok. However, she did not get a lot of attention during her initial days on TikTok. Eventually, her videos, which were educational and highly informative, began drawing in an audience and one of her videos went viral. After that, she gained a massive following in a very short span of time. Then, she branched out on social media and joined Instagram and YouTube, and managed to create a solid community. She also collaborates with several brands and often uploads sponsored posts on her Instagram.
She decided to move beyond her social media and penned down an autobiographical account of living with Tourette’s. In October 2021, she released her book “My Nonidentical Twin.” The book delves into the challenges faced by someone with a disability as well as other health complications that she experiences.
