Congrats are in order for Tiffany Young!

The pop singer snagged a win at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards yesterday (March 14) in the “Best Solo Breakout” category. A win solely based off fans’ votes, Young proves that she’s a forced to be reckoned with in the industry and is in the fast lane towards stardom in a sea of talented artists.

The “Best Solo Breakout” win is the first for Young, and a first for iHeartRadio, as she is the only Korean woman (so far) to receive an award at the sixth annual show.

Celeb Secrets caught up with Tiffany MINUTES after winning her award, where she said it was an inspiring moment not only for her, but for all Asian-American women trying to pursue their dreams.

“This is a moment for Asian-American women. I am extremely — I still can’t believe this is happening. I hope this moment inspires more young women to empower one another to go after their dreams and break out,” Young told Celeb Secrets.

“This is all thanks to my fans. They are incredible and just another moment for K-Pop as well for all the K-Pop fans who came together and this is all yours guys.”

Tiffany is currently in the midst of promotion for her first U.S. EP, Lips On Lips, which surpassed her initial solo stats from 2016 on the Billboard chart debuting at No. 9 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 30 on the Independent Albums chart.
