Who is Anna Sitar? Meet TikTok’s ‘ray of positivity’

Influencer Anna Sitar is taking over TikTok with good vibes and upbeat content. 

Sitar is a graduate student and one of TikTok’s breakout stars of 2021. Her down-to-earth videos include life advice, vlogs and an endless slew of lattes. Sitar tends to speak directly to the camera as if she were talking to a friend. Her relatability has scored her major partnerships with brands like Curology, Chanel Beauty, Virgin Galactic and Marc Jacobs. Here’s everything you need to know about the rising star. 

Who is Anna Sitar? 

Sitar was born on March 30, 1997 and is currently 24 years old. 

She graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in mechanical engineering. In 2019, she moved from Michigan to L.A. to attend Loyola Marymount University to study film and television production. 

Sitar started her TikTok out of boredom

When Sitar moved to L.A., she didn’t know very many people and was in a long-distance relationship. To kill time and get used to doing camera work, she began posting TikToks in late 2019. Then the pandemic hit. And she had even more free time. 

“I was bored and what else was I supposed to do,” Sitar told E! News. “So, I was able to create an unrealistic amount of content. I got the chance to unload all these thoughts and concepts and I got the chance to grow them.” 

Sitar posts three to five videos a day to build her following. TikTok named Sitar one of 2021’s breakout stars. She has over 11.4 million followers and 176,000 YouTube subscribers. 

Sitar posts content for herself, first and foremost 

The influencer became popular for her “Another Day, Another Starbies” series where she tries the latest Starbucks concoctions and her “I Don’t Want It,” series, where she compels her followers to never settle for less. 

“My platform is a lot about me,” she told E! News, who dubbed her a “ray of positivity” on the app. “And that’s what I want to share on social media. If it helps somebody else find their voice, their path and feel more comfortable and confident in themselves, that’s what I want for every person on the app.”

Who is Anna Sitar dating?

Her long-distance relationship didn’t exactly survive. Sitar is currently dating TikToker and radio host Josh “Bru” Brubaker. The couple confirmed their relationship in December 2021.
