WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - TikTok's future in the United States is once again up in the air as the U.S. government discusses a bill that would possibly ban it. Content creators have taken to posting their frustrations on the app saying this isn't fair and they're upset with this bill which would force TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, to either sell their shares or face a ban.

Aliyah Funschelle, a freelance content creator and sports reporter says TikTok has given her so many dream opportunities. She started posting on the app back in 2020 sharing memories and moments from covering Wichita State sporting events. Now she lives in New York City with more than 60,000 followers on the app.

"I feel like I've documented my entire life and career journey through TikTok," she said.

Through the connections she's made on TikTok she's gotten to go to places she's always dreamed of like the NBA draft and countless of professional sporting events. She's also found a community online. Wanting to spread a positive message to go after what you want. Saying in one of her videos, "I don't know who needs to hear this but whatever your dreams are... dream bigger."

That's why she's sad to hear the U.S. government is once again talking about a possible TikTok ban. She's grown her community to other platforms like Instagram but she says TikTok is a major part of her business. It's how she started and she's put in a lot of time and energy to make a career out of it.

"It would definitely take away a big part of what I sell myself on when I pitch myself to brands or teams or leagues because a lot of these teams. especially professional teams, they want to figure out how to leverage content creators of my kind," she said.

While it would cause a big change for her career, the app is much more to her than just a business tool. She's been posting on it for four years now documenting big life changes along the way. From her days at WSU covering Shocker basketball to leaving her family behind and chasing her dreams in the Big Apple, the app and her followers have been with her through it all.

"I started out in Wichita and was documenting my life there. Moved to NYC and really kickstarted my career here in professional sports," she said.
