This 11-Year-Old Latina Has Thousands Of Followers On TikTok And The Most Hilarious Sense Of Humor About Latinidad

Of the new class of TikTok talent that has cropped up since the app’s boom in popularity, no one is as relatable or as hilarious as adorable superstar-in-the-making Oliva Olivarez. Daughter of one of the reigning queens of TikTok, Ashlay Soto, Olivarez started out as a co-star in her mom’s viral short movies and quickly upgraded to scene-stealer. The videos were so popular because they riffed on the old “mother knows best” adage and playfully acted out the consequences of what would happen if alternate-reality Olivia rebelled against her Mom’s good (if strict) intentions.

Now, this little Latina upstart of Mexican descent has her own TikTok account that boasts over 1 million followers–not a shabby number for a girl who isn’t even 12-years-old yet! Needless to say, Olivia has an incredibly bright future ahead of her and we can’t wait to see more of it. In honor of Olivarez 12th birthday coming up on July 29th, we’ve compiled a list of Olivia’s top TikTok videos that illustrate precisely why she’s the reigning Princess of TikTok. 

Here is a round-up of Olivia Olivarez’s top Tik Toks!

1. Olivia Stealing the Spotlight

One of Soto/Olivarez family’s best videos because of how candid it is, Ashlay is getting really into her performance when Olivia pops in and does a sassy hair flip, completely stealing her mom’s spotlight.

2. The “No Boys Ever” Video

Ashlay makes it no secret that she’s not a fan of the idea of her daughter growing up and dating. This is one of many videos where she makes her feelings known.

3. When Olivia Reveals the Man Behind the Curtain

Olivia is not afraid of calling out her mom for her online shenanigans when they’re misleading. This is why we love Olivia–she’s all about keeping it real.

3. When Mom finds out you’ve been lying about boys…

In another hilarious video of Ashlay’s reactions to Olivia talking to boys, Olivia denies she’s talking to one before her mom catches her in the act and chases her off screen. This is an ongoing bit for the mom-daughter duo that, frankly, never gets old.

4. The Adorable #TBT of Young Olivia

Here’s a #TBT to when Olivia was super young and super adorable. As her mom and her brother sing One Direction’s “Olivia” on a split-screen, Olivia dances and sings before her hair suddenly turns into colorful braids. 

5. Mama Knows Best!

Both Olivia and her mom lipsync the lyrics to the song “Weak”–an ode to resisting the temptation of vices like drugs, alcohol, and sex. In the end, as usual, Olivia hilariously rebels against her mom making for comedic gold.

6. Me: “Momma, I’m a big girl now”. Momma: “Not if I have anything to do with it”.

Another hilarious “no boys” Tik Tok, Olivia sings Hairspray’s “Momma I’m a Big Girl Now” song and when she gets to the line “now I’d rather play around with teenage boys”, Ashlay cuts in and tells Olivia “You better run”. 

7. When the tables have turned

In a hilarious turning of tables, while usually, Olivia is the one to run away from Ashlay, when Ashlay tells Olivia “I don’t care about Fortnite”, she ends up being the one running!

8. Instant Regret.

The family drama continues! We’ve all been in the situation where we talk back to our madre and then immediately regret it. This Tik Tok illustrates that feeling of instant regret perfectly.

9. Potty Mouth

We know that if we had Ashlay as a mother, we’d be terrified to step out of line. Like in this video when Olivia is about to sing along to a song with the f-word and Ashlay steps in and makes her think twice about cussing.

10. Relatable AF

“Mom, I just want to tell you that I love you.” “What do you want?” How many of our moms have responded EXACTLY like that when we say those words to them? As usual, Ashlay and Olivia are spot-on with their interpretations of everyday life.

People Are Talking About What They Would Look Up On Their Phone 5 Years In The Future

Hasn’t everyone had a desire to see the future at some point in their life? During so much uncertainty at the moment, it’s no wonder that people are wishing they had a chance to type in a question to the future and see what it holds. Recently, a user on Reddit posted a prompt about the future that instantly went viral.

Writing to fellow Redditers the users asked “You can’t time travel, but your phone has the internet from 5 years in the future. What do you search for first?”

Check out the pretty wise and honest answers below!

“I’d try to be like Bill Murrays character by the end of Ground Hog day. Find out if there’s any needless deaths from preventable accidents that I may be able to change. Obviously I’d have won the lotto too, this would give me plenty of resources and free time to become a local superhero.”- Meglamore

“I would start a blog on my pc and then switch to my phone to check if it now has updates from the future. If so, my future self could talk to my present self. I could read about my mistakes and try to avoid them. If a post disappears, that would mean that I did it right.”- thezubek

“My son to make sure he’s still alive. He’s chronically suicidal and should be on his own by then. I worry about it.”- Gadgetownsme

“Queen elizabeth (if there were more searches available). Then probably see which countries still exist as they are now, See how covid-19 played out. Memes so I can make an accurate “this is a meme from the future” Then see what are the biggest breakthroughs of science in the last 5 years, probably at least medicine and energy. Also obviously lottery numbers or something.”- uhrilahja

“I would check my mails and message Apps to find out how I’m doing in the future. If the phone continuously updates, so that it always show the internet of in five years. Then I would probably look for scientific breakthroughs like fusion and also for catastrophes. Then I would start writing messages to myself like a diary so I can see them in the present. And also in 2025 I would start copying the messages from then in 5 years and send them to myself so I can see the messages of the next ~100 years assuming I live that long. Edit: I probably would write a script that copies the messages for me.” – Barti666

“Check if im still single.” –Beans_In_The_Dark

“My family member’s names, i Want to know who to call and go see every chance i get if they don’t have that much time left.” – EothainVSorcs

“Wars or terrorist attacks that have happened so that we can avoid them or prepare for stuff like pandemic and natural disasters early.”- themattv140

“Whether or not Donald Trump (or one of his allies) is President.”- Pepperspray24

“Besides the obvious (lottery, election, myself, etc) I would want to see if opera made a comeback after the pandemic or if the virus was the final nail in the coffin of this art form, which has been slowly headed towards its demise for decades now.

Edit: I should have said here that I’m a huge opera fan and I hope I’m wrong!

And I’m not talking about the web browser.” –IoSonCalaf

“Using this logic, I’d want to try to fight climate change. We’re approaching the point of no return, and unless we figure out how to change things quickly, we’re fucked. I’d use the first five years to learn the issue. Then, I’d right a big note to self online on what I studied, what was important, what wasn’t. I’d include things to avoid, things to try going for, a point of no return that scientists concluded, and that they should constantly update in case I get involved in an accident. This would lead to a long chain of studying, trying to find solutions, and ways to get involved into politics in order to actually have a chance of making anything change. The saddest part is, it might not even be possible, and so there would be an unlimited amount of me’s trying to prevent imminent doom, only to fail over and over and over again.”- Chicken_0n_Fire

“Trump conviction.”- micialicia

“I’d look up how my own writing has gone, because five years from now I would definitely have gotten past some of the things I was stuck on. I would save myself some time by just copying my finished story and posting it now. I could get a different perspective on my finished work, see all my new ideas. This could go many ways because I could be hella confused on how I got a certain headcanon about a character and just general confusion on a lot of stuff, and some of the journey of writing is the journey of figuring it all out, and I might not fully understand it all just reading my finished story and not having gone through the process of writing it, like not being able to get into my future self’s head to really understand it the way my future self does, but it could be really nice to save myself five years of time.

I’d look up reviews for future games, movies, and show to see if they are as good as the trailers suggest, and prevent myself from wasting time on unenjoyable content.

Basically after looking up all the general world-altering stuff, I’d surf the internet like I normally do, but this time I won’t have to wait for all the new content.

I would also see which celebrities have been accused and/or convicted of crimes; see who I should really support and who’s going to stay a good person and who’s going to be revealed as corrupted.

I’d see how the elections turn out and if things are better or worse with the new president, try to prepare for said problems, and depending on if I can convince other people to believe that I really have a future phone, maybe I could try and change who gets voted for if it turns out to be worse.

I’d look up recent science discoveries, see what has been revealed as myth and new health concerns. I’d see how bad global warming has got and if we’ve finally managed to start really doing something about it.

See all this stuff with Black Lives Matter and corporate greed and all the political stuff and how it all turned out and how we got there, and see if I was wrong and if I need to change my opinions on things and try to lead us down a different path if it ends badly.

Basically see how things turn out and if I should change my opinions on things.”- Ice_the_Irken

“Interesting to see how many people pick COVID as what they would search. I would search global warming-linked disasters to make sure I wasn’t living anywhere where they’d happen. And 2020 election results to see whether or not I need to move forward with moving to Canada.” –jabberingginger

The TikTok user realized that the pizza delivery man was a good candidate for some help so he decided to do something to help him out. According to CNN, the octogenarian works 30 hours a week delivering pizzas for Papa Johns. The old man delivers the pizzas because he recently came to the realization that he cannot survive solely on his social security wages.

Valdez immediately turned to his followers to help raise the money needed to help the pizza man out.

Valdez knew that he had the kind of followers who would help him makes this man’s life a little easier. So, he turned to his followers and asked them to participate in a Venmo challenge to raise enough month to give this man some help.

And came through they did.

Valdez was able to raise more than $12,000 for the viejito to make sure that he had an easier life. After all, a man in his 80s should not have to work. This is the time that he is supposed to be enjoying his golden years doing what he wants when he wants.

They even included some merch in the gifts.

The shirt is a drawing of the pizza man holding open a pizza box. The words “Hellooo are you looking for some pizza?” are written inside the box. The shirt really excited him because, tbh, we all love to be seen in a drawing. It is so nice and personal.

But that check got him right in the feels.

That amount of money is life changing for anyone, but especially for someone on a very fixed income. Seeing his face when he realizes that the social media star brought him some serious money will make your heart melt. It is one of the most sincere moments on social media. Grab the tissues because you are going to cry.

Valdez is keeping his followers updated and it seems the pizza man is happy, beloved, and super into his shirt.

“This couldn’t have gone any better,” Valdez told KSL about the whole experience. “He needed this. I’m just glad we could help him. We just need to treat people with kindness and respect the way he does. He stole our hearts.”
