A pre-nursing student whose TikTok account has amassed over 3 million followers, Baylen Dupree, took her message to a popular talk show.

In March 2022, Dupree appeared on the “Dr. Phil Show” to discuss her viral videos that educate people about Tourette syndrome and her own daily struggles. “Spreading my condition
on social media has changed my life. I wasn’t confident in myself to share my condition with anyone,” Dupree said. “But now, I want people to know that if you have any kind of condition, physical or mental, you can still be confident and love yourself and treat yourself well. The more positive I am, the happier I feel about myself.”
