Gratitude With Grandma! 💗👵

Happy World Gratitude Day! We're celebrating gratitude with an interview with Grandma Droniak (@grandma_droniak) from TikTok about being a content creator, inspiration, being a grandma, and just life in general!

*All video credits go to @grandma_droniak on TikTok!*

1. What are your favorite things about life?
  • I love making TikToks, hanging out with my grandchildren, going swimming, and playing bingo.

2. What do you consider your followers to be? (Friends, family, etc?)

  • I consider them all my extended grandchildren since they're all younger than me. I love them so much.

3. What is the message you are trying to send through your positive content and energy?

  • I want to spread the message of "You can do anything you want, no matter your age". I am 92 years old and I used to be shy, but now I don't care and I will say what I want. I'll also dance when I want because it doesn't matter.

4. What inspired you to create content on social media?

  • I have the help of my grandson, Kevin. He helps me sometimes and I'm inspired by him sometimes too.

5. What is your motto for everyday life?

  • "Love everybody" The easiest thing you can do is be nice to others and love everyone because then love will find its way back to you.

Thank you Grandma Droniak for answering our questions and being a great TikToker!
