Interview with Brandilyn (@thenerddiva)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I always wanted to go into the IT field. As I was getting my degree, I started using social media a lot so I thought to myself, why not use my incredible knowledge of computers and coding to reach out to more people? That is when I started working towards my social media career as a lifestyle and tech influencer.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I have never experienced burnout. I am deeply in love with my profession and always work hard to make myself better at my craft.
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?
My parents, my children, and my teachers. They have all helped me reach where I am today.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My dream is to become a top philanthropist. I have already become part of the 10% because of my hard work. Charity is my number 1 priority.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
I believe in working towards dreams without caring about what other people are going to say. As the famous saying goes, “No matter how good you are, someone is always going to be against you.”
