About Lil Miquela

Miquela Sousa, aka Lil Miquela, is a 19 year old internet sensation who has 1.5M+ followers on Instagram. The catch? She’s not a real person. Lil Miquela is a CGI art project developed by Trevor McFedries and Sara Decou that has taken on a life of “her” own. In a highly choreographed PR stunt by their company brud, Lil’ Miquela’s Instagram was hacked and her grams deleted, causing the world to lose their mind. But the robot phenom returned to the spotlight, releasing her first single “Not Mine” on her own label, LilMiquela Recs, and supporting Black Lives Matter, Innocence Project, LGBTQ+ Life Center, Downtown Women's Center and Justice for Youth.
