The Final Something To Look Forward To Show

August 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

Violet grew up in Ashland, Oregon. She performed in theatre productions while in high school.

Violet began daily vlogging in 2007 for a school project[1] under the username Meekakitty when working in Hong Kong and Thailand as a fashion model. However, she quit modelling by 2009. Violet’s early content focused on storytelling, skits, and music videos, including fan-made music videos for popular artists such as Relient K, Family Force 5, and Mika.

After moving to New York City in 2009, Violet gained attention after winning $100,000 in a YouTube competition by receiving the most comments on her video entry.[1][2]

In 2011, Violet was featured in fellow YouTube creator Nanalew’s music video for the song “Sail” by Awolnation. The video went viral and has since amassed over 350 million views. On September 24, 2012, Violet appeared in the music video for “Cray Button” by Family Force 5.[3] She also directed the music video for the group’s song “Chainsaw”, featuring Tedashii.

Since beginning to record and release music in 2013, the focus of Violet’s channel has shifted to her original music. She has also dropped the moniker Meekakitty, instead using her real name, Tessa Violet, across all platforms. It later became an official music channel in 2019.
