Irish TikTok star Miriam Mullins has won praise from Late Late Show viewers, after making her TV debut.
The 25-year-old spoke to Ryan Tubridy about her rise to fame on the popular app, where she has gained a massive following of 1.6million people, and about using her platform for good.
The Cork native said: “I absolutely love being a role model to young people.”
“I’ve done videos where I’ve had messages of consent in them. I try and do a bit of that”, Mullins explained.
“I get messages from teenage girls and teenage boys all of the time about ‘what do I do in this situation?'”
“I give tips for going back to school and college… I just think the last couple of months have just been a bit crazy and people don’t really know what’s going to happen and they haven’t experienced things and they’re a bit more anxious than normal.”
“Just from my experiences of being in school and being in college, I can take that and bring it on and hopefully help people, ” the social media sensation added.
“I absolutely love being a role model to young people”

Well done Miriam Mullins, she is such a positive influence on young people. She gave a guest talk to my first year marketing students @MTU_ie earlier in the year and was fantastic at answering questions #LateLateShow pic.twitter.com/Nh7gCS5XCG
