Milo Winter is a young social media celebrity from Los Angeles, USA, who has gained a massive fan following through his videos on TikTok. However, he is not your regular social media celebrity. Yes, he is good-looking, does goofy videos with his friends and is quite witty, but when you hear him speak and express his opinions, you will get to understand that he is mature way beyond his young age and has a keen intellect. Although he feels very grateful for the TikTok platform due to which he gained the attention of masses, he considers himself to be a motivational speaker and likes to have meaningful conversations with people around him, even if it is on social media. In a live stream he did last year, he shared his views on several serious topics like gun control, abortion, gay marriages and mentioned the fact that today’s youth needs to be aware about these things and talk about them so that they can bring about a change in policies that would help pave the path for a better future. And he would like to start a dialogue about such topics since he has a following and can help in some small way to provide a food for thought for his fans.

But his videos clicked and he rose to fame getting more than 1.3 million likes and gaining over 118K followers.
His video known as ‘I love Cody Ko’ and his post on the #witnessmyfitness challenge have been really appreciated and the latter got him over 800,000 views.

His sense of humor sets him apart and appeals to the audience.
He even has an eponymous YouTube channel which he had started in 2016 and has more than 49000 subscribers.
