While we believe life is all sweet, light, and rainbow, we can’t stop the disaster from ruining our lives. So, the best thing we could do is prepare ourselves to stay safe. To help people know how they can save themselves from some dangerous situations, storyteller and video creator Jack Neel, have shared a whole bunch of cool and interesting facts.
“I’ve done a lot of educational series on my TikTok page over the past year or so, and within the past few months I’ve narrowed down my niche to horror/true-crime-related topics. ‘Facts That Could Save Your Life’ fit well onto my page because of dark/mysterious undertones. It’s one of my followers’ favorite series, and they’ve noted how they always save/download my videos in case they need the advice for the future,” Jack shared with us.
