Q: What steps would you suggest people looking to grow their social media following should take?

Q: Why did you decide to become so open and share your life with the public?

Q: How has your life changed since becoming an influencer?

Q: Where do you see your career in 5 years?
I would really love to be making a steady, solid income from social media. Nothing crazy but I’d love my little community to grow enough just to be able to support my family + see the world!

Creating in any industry is tough. It’s A LOT of blood, sweat and tears but it is SO worth it and nothing has ever made me feel so fulfilled.
