“To talk about how I became an “influencer” ,People classify me as one but I don’t see myself as such. I started getting the numbers because whenever people followed my account, I made it a point to follow them back. I’ve had a number of requests to be a brand ambassador but I’ve had to reject them for personal reasons. As I mentioned earlier I don’t see myself as an influencer, just a little girl who wants a place to have fun and nothing else.


“My advice to the youth is, Social media is the new tool for wealth creation so they should uplift the positive impact, In addition, Life is shorter than they think and they need to make the most of each and every day. They should aspire to be the best version of themselves and also know that there are no limits to whatever they want to achieve. As they do so, they should not forget to have a happy and fulfilling life.”
