An avid social media user, Smiles began making YouTube videos in 2017 with predictions for 2018 but soon transitioned into technology and quickly realized being an influencer was something he wanted to do more.
Currently sitting at just under one million followers on TikTok, Smiles' page is unverified despite having 4.4. million views. In addition to TikTok, Smiles has over 10K followers on Instagram, all of whom tune in to watch him share his favorite things, voiceovers, and filter challenges.
I want to do this because countless people with disabilities are not treated their age. So as I continue on my pathway, I want to tell everyone to stop treating them like they're not intelligent and actually see what they are really thinking in the noggin. They are probably way more intelligent than you. They just can't express it like you do. Toby Smiles, Influencer
Among the top of Smiles' list are his favorite drinks from Starbucks. By his estimation, Smiles has spent over $1,000 on Starbucks drinks which, in his words, is more than he's spent on school supplies, so he felt it was worth a shot to ask. Smiles currently has a Change.org petition requesting special name recognition with almost 4,000 signatures out of the 5,000 needed.
