At just 14 years old, Paola Mejía, better known as La Chiki 504 has become a viral video blogger thanks to her lighthearted 'how to be poor' videos.

Mejía lives in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, otherwise known as the 'murder capital of the world'. She was also born into poverty. Instead of getting down about the violence and destitution that surrounds her, she exudes unfaltering positivity.

She lives by the motto, "Sea humidle," or "Be humble."

Her first video, posted on April 11th, was a 40-second clip detailing the advantages of a tub-sized concrete basin in a public bath over a fancy pool. The clip has since been viewed over 400,000 times.

In another video, she shows people how they can avoid a trip to the salon by straightening their hair at home with an iron and a pillow case.

Mire Uno Que Es Humilde Se Plancha El Pelo Con La Plancha De La Casa... Si Usted No Podía Mire Aquí Le Enseño Jaja Pero Si Usted Quiere Caminar Y Gastar Pasajes Pues Vayase Para La Sala De BellezaKF❤Bendiciones Mi Gente #La_Chiki_504

Then, there's the video where she lathers a bun with butter and jokes about it being something more appetizing like lobster or chicken with fried plantain chips. "We have to be humble. We have to accept that we eat bread with butter when we live in Honduras," she says.

Mejia hopes her sudden fame will inspire others to see what is truly valuable in life.

"I am rich, because I am the daughter of the owner of the world: God. And wealthy" – she added – "Well, that is not a goal in my life, but I hope someday I get a good job to be able to give my family a better life."
