Ithaca College student, Brockport native wins David Dobrik’s Tesla giveaway


WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWTI) — Laney Sodoma, currently a sophomore at Ithaca College, originally from Brockport, NY, will soon be driving in a luxury vehicle.

On October 5, Sodoma received exciting news that she was one of five winners to win the TikTok and YouTube Sensation David Dobrik’s Tesla giveaway.

The “David Dobrik Giveaway” challenged his fans and followers to check voter registration and if not prior, ultimately register to vote in the 2020 election. Being a DACA recipient, Dobrik is currently unable to vote.

According to HeadCount, the Giveaway promoted over 100,000 Americans to register to vote in 24 hours.

Participants were prompted with multiple ways to enter including texting a toll-free number, entering online, sharing an instagram post or mailing in a form.

Laney stated that this just reassured her that she will make an impact with her vote this November.
