Interview @ Alikiba20
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I don’t know if I’d call it a career path because I only started doing it for fun, but over the course of time I slowly started enjoying it more and more as a means of expressing myself through different modes of art. I have a very flowery personality and I like showcasing it without the fear of judgement and scrutiny.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Unapologetically be yourself. The internet has given these spaces to people to tell their own stories and I don’t think other peoples’ opinions should ever come in the way of that.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
All my friends who feature on my Instagram and help with engagement are who I am grateful to. They never judge or criticize, instead they support and encourage me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Hopefully if I am able to spread any positivity or encourage others to be themselves on social media or even in real life, I’ll believe that I have brought some good to the world.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Do not judge my story by the chapter you walked in on.” I appreciate the message this quote gives because it is a reminder to everyone that you can never truly know someone’s whole truth, so being kind and accepting is the best thing you can always be.
How can our readers follow you on social media?
