When did you start your career as a content creator/social media influencer?
I first got into my career as a content creator around 2 years ago! I’ve been taking photos and creating content for as long as I can remember but it didn’t become my career until very recently.
Do you have any advice for young women who are hoping to pursue a career as a content creator/social media influencer? Is there anything you wish you knew before?
The people in my life! I’m surrounded by the most beautiful friends and family that make every day special.
What are you most thankful for at this stage in your life?
I’m most thankful for my health and my ambition.
Do you have any exciting upcoming projects that you can share with our readers?
There’s always something in the works! Follow me to stay up to date.
What was the highlight of your time in Antigua with Modeliste? Any funny stories you would like to share?
We made the best memories and had so many highlights. After each day I kept saying “this is the best day out of the whole trip.” But on the last night, on our way home from dinner, we were having a sing-along in the car and all of the sudden these lights started going off and we were in a party bus! We had a whole concert to “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift. It was also my birthday weekend and everyone went the extra mile to make me feel so special!
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In 10 years I see myself having my own business, living somewhere warm, and hopefully married!
How do you balance your work life and your personal life?
I always say it’s a little hard to balance work and personal life in this career because there’s so much overlap. I’m still trying to find that perfect in between but having designated time off my phone and just being present in the moment really helps.
Any current trends you will NEVER partake in? If so, which trends?
I personally wouldn’t participate in the micro skirt trend. I love it but trust me I can’t pull it off!
What is your current skincare routine for winter? Do you have any favorite products we must try?
Yes, my skin gets so dry in the winter but I’ve been using Fresh Beauty almost every day/night. I’ve been loving their lip mask and their tea elixir serum! My new ultimate favorite. So if you’re going to try anything, I’d recommend those two products.
If you weren’t in social media, what would you want to be doing for work?
I’m in school studying marketing and PR, so I would definitely be pursuing something similar to what I do, just on the other end.
What makes you feel most confident?
The clothes I wear! Fashion is a huge part of my personality and there’s no better feeling than putting on a good outfit and going out.
If you only could have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
The spicy rigatoni from Carbone… the best thing I’ve ever had.
Choose one place in the world you have always wanted to visit but haven’t.
South of France! I’ve always wanted to visit so that’s definitely at the top of my list.
What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
I’m so appreciative of all of you. Thank you for supporting me each day and continuing to believe in me. I wouldn’t be where I am without each and every one of my followers! Forever grateful for the love, thank you for being in my life.
