Zoe LaVerne was born on June 3, 2001, to Debbie Pemberton and Dough Wright, in the American state of Indiana. LaVerne has two brothers. Eric is her blood-related brother, and Cameron, her stepbrother. Her whole family shifted to Franklin, Indiana when she was eight years old. She attended two different schools, Franklin Community High School and Green Community High School, during her early schooling years. LaVerne developed an interest in music and has dreamed of becoming an actress and a model since she was a child.
Zoe is one of the few creators who adopted TikTok’s predecessor, Musical.ly. LaVerne was still in high school when she first ventured into the world of social media, and as a result, her Musical.ly videos were often the cause of intense ridicule and bullying often being termed “cringey” by her peers as reported by Seventeen.
She eventually turned to Musical.ly as an escape from her tough life at school and soon found it to be a place where she could truly be herself. Since then, LaVerne has posted make-up, dance, and lip-sync videos regularly on social media. Her viral success on Musical.ly allowed her to become a verified creator in 2017 and she has over 1.5 billion likes on her videos on the app. LaVerne translated her massive fan following from Musical.ly when it got acquired and eventually became TikTok.
The following year, her bullying at a school became so insufferable she had to pull out of school and be homeschooled as reported by USA Today.
Over the years, Zoe LaVerne has become an inspiration to many young women out there to follow their passion and be themselves and to not listen to people who didn’t believe in them.
