Tell us about yourself and what you do.
I have been described by my peers as an optimistic individual, with a passion to inspire the people around me. In the past few years, I’ve found myself constantly pulled into the health and fitness niche, an arena in which I share my personal stories – of how, as a scrawny, insecure teen, I felt challenged because I had low self-esteem and a poor self-image, and how I eventually overcame my body-image issues, and now live with confidence, while inspiring others to be the best versions of themselves. I intend to continue on this journey, to serve others and help them achieve their goals through my platform, which I’m launching in 2019.
What is your IG style, inspiration and theme?
My theme is a combination of Fitness and Lifestyle – where followers will learn more about how they can transform their bodies through workouts and nutrition, and, more importantly, how they can be consistently motivated to take action and be closer to achieving their fitness and physique goals. A small portion of my feed takes you to places I’ve travelled – I intend to build on this in time to come.
How do you engage with your followers and keep growing the numbers?
Just like dating, attraction is what pulls someone to you, and your personality is what keeps them. It definitely helps that I’m authentic in my sharing on the gram. To connect with my followers, I would regularly appear on InstaLive streams, during which my followers can join me for a streaming session to chat about anything under the sun. This is going to be more regular from 2019.
What’s the secret to a great IG photo?
As you can already tell from my feed, being topless is number 1! Jokes aside, other tips include paying attention to lighting and angles. Having a clear and well organized photo will will also allow you to make edits to colours and other adjustments, so as to make your photo stand-out more.
What is the one rule you live by?
It isn’t a rule, but I try to live by this quote: “Accept the things you cannot change, have the courage to change the things you can… and have the wisdom to know the difference.” I first heard it in a DC Comics animated movie. I later found out it was actually adapted from the Serenity Prayer.
