Interview with Stephany Herrera @stephany_hm11
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Currently, most of the information that reaches us comes from social networks. Content creation is no longer just about entertainment but also a way to spread information creatively and informally, thus attracting people’s attention. From there came my idea of presenting my ideas on various topics on a less strict platform than the conventional ones.
Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
On many occasions, I create content about Autism because my 7-year-old son is autistic. Once while I was training in the gym, a lady approached me to tell me how much she admired me and that she had been following me for a long time because her son also has Autism. There I realized the scope and impact that the content you create has.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Creating content is very easy; almost anyone can do it, but my advice is to do it responsibly; you have to take into account what I said before, the information that you disclose can have a significant impact on someone’s life, and this is a responsibility that cannot be taken lightly.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My sister Melanie entered the world of content creators long before I did. She is a “Pro” and has been a guide, manager, mentor, boss etc… on this path for me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I don’t feel like a “successful” person in the full sense of the world in the world of social networks; I think I still have a lot to learn and grow. That said, I always try that my content, in addition to entertaining, informs and creates awareness about social issues. It has also been a means for me to contribute my grain of sand in raising awareness about Autism.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“ Happiness is not a destination, it is a lifestyle” I have no idea who said that, but I feel very identified with it. We spend a lot of time looking.
How can our readers follow you on social media?

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article? I want to stay in the article that I am not a content creator full time, I am a Mental Health Therapist, and currently, I am working in a pediatric psychiatry crisis and tr
