TN10: Verun Marie Moring, TikTok Star
Basic bio: We first spotted Verun Marie Moring on her addictive TikTok handle @MarieBustinMoves where her Gen-X (and multi-generational) old school dances have gone viral. Try not to bust a smile at her “Running Man.” This dancing mom of six (and grandmother to four) is an accountant by day and also owns a dance studio in Georgia called A Time to Dance Studio. As she likes to say, “I spread joy thru dance and finance.”
Beyond the bio: “I have gained clarity about life and womanhood in my 40s. The hot flashes caught me the most off guard. It’s like, why don’t our mothers and aunties prepare us for this difficult process? I love being a grandma because it’s another chance to be more patient and forgiving towards (my kids’) kids. I wasn’t the perfect parent but now I have a chance to be the perfect grandparent.”
What makes you a grown-ass lady? Caring about people other than myself, especially other women. And making my life count and living unapologetically after raising all my babies.
