Tsehay joined The Wiggles in 2020 at just 15 years old after former Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins departed.

The teen started as a backup performer and made her first appearance in the Wiggles’ viral TikTok of the dance trend Renegade.

In August 2021, it was announced that she would be a part of The Wiggles’ YouTube series Fruit Salad TV, which featured the most diverse cast ever.

In a statement from the company, they explained their decision to launch the platform.

They were “Seeking to inspire a diverse audience with its gender-balanced and diverse cast,” so more children can “See themselves reflected on the screen”.

The teen talked to Junkee about joining the cast and why it was an essential step for the show.

“I didn’t realise how packed out The Wiggles shows were. So many kids, and it’s amazing to see their faces when Emma, Lachy, Simon, and Anthony get on stage,” she said.

“When kids see representation, they’re like, ‘Oh wow! She looks like me, I can do what I want to do, seeing her on TV’.”
