“I began my career as a fashion blogger at a very young age. I was only 9 years old. I loved fashion and wanted to share my love for it with the world. I had no idea it would evolve to what it has become today.”
“I focus more on the quality of the content I’m posting, rather than the quantity. I started off by creating a post every day, but then I began to focus on the collaborations I have had, and continue to have. I no longer post every day.”
“The social networks I use most often are Instagram and Musical.ly. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact time my social network platform grew. It didn’t happen overnight. It took a lot of time and dedication. It is almost surreal to see how far I have come, and I am truly grateful to be where I am today. I believe I gained followers because I was posting content that was relevant to things that I love. Fashion is truly one of my greatest passions and I think my followers are able to see that. It isn’t just a hobby for me. It is a career.”
“At the beginning of my career, I would say my biggest challenge was getting to know who people really were in the industry. It’s highly competitive, and some people will let you know that it is a competition and they do not want to help support you. I learned that early on, though, and I would say that is a good thing.”
“I think what helped me push forward is just staying true to who I am. What you see is what you get. I love helping others, and my parents help me stay grounded. The industry and the people in the industry do not change, but what has changed for me is being intentional about who I want to work with, who I want to be tied to and who I don’t want to be tied to.”
“My style is eclectic, trendy, California-girl style. I don’t think I’ve dealt with anyone not understanding my fashion or style. I think in the social influencer world, everyone has their own unique twist to how they style themselves. Everyone respects each other’s choice of styling.”
“The advice I would give to teens and tweens trying to find their style is to stay true to themselves. There are so many trends out there, and if you do not feel comfortable or confident in that trend, then it is not for you. Always choose trends and styles that make you feel comfortable and confident!”
