|“||But on the plus side, that was AWESOME!||”|
—Tomika about Summer's epic fail
She is portrayed by Breanna Yde.
Tomika is Summer's best friend, and she is friends with everyone except for Clark, whom she treated as her arch-enemy. She has a secret fear to sleep away from home and can't fall asleep without her wobble named Pam Lam. She didn't tell Summer about her secret fear because she feels embarrassed. She has a rock named Lucy who she thinks brings her luck. Tomika is a risk-taker, who has a passion for skateboarding and being the lead singer and bassist in the band.
Tomika is a fun-loving tomboy with a kick-butt attitude. A gifted bassist with the pipes to match, she’s the definition of a double threat. She’s down to earth and tells it like it is, which is why she is such a great best friend to Summer. Tomika is more comfortable with a skateboard than a microphone, but whether it's on a half pipe or a stage, she’s a star! She's a daredevil when it comes to challenges, and a rocker when it comes to the band!
