When we were planning SMDH19, Alicia Mccarvell “the influencer” didn’t yet exist. What she has created in two and a half years is pretty amazing. That is why we asked her to be the keynote speaker to open Social Media Day Halifax 2022.
Near the end of 2019, just before the world crumbled and leaned into online everything, Alicia posted a few videos on TikTok and her third one “Hot Husband Check”, went viral garnering over 4 million views. That video started her down a path to working with major national brands, modelling, acting and having a platform to talk about self-love.
In 2022 alone she’s been invited to SXSW to be part of the launch of Lizzo’s “Watch Out For the Big Girls”, helped to open TikTok Canada’s offices, and picked up a second season of Vollies.
Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Alicia uses humour to tackle conversations around body image, worth, and self-love. Sharing everything from workout routines and dance videos to updates on her relationship with her husband, Alicia hopes to relate, inspire laughter, and break down barriers.
