Blogger by nature. Something like an editor at large. Pop culture princess and fashion fille.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
In addition to love for writing and all things pop culture chic, I really love films. I want to make an indie movie some day. I already have the idea and characters set!
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Moving to the other side of the country by myself to chase my dreams.
How do you define cool?
Cool is confidence. It's wearing what you want, talking how you want, living how you want, with the utmost security in yourself. Even when it's absolutely ridiculous, if you have the confidence, it's cool.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Social media. It basically curates all of the world's cutting-edge innovations and serves them right to your front door (timeline and/or dashboard) daily.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The diversity and the flexibility. It curates a wide range of things so there's something for everyone all over the world.
What is your favorite trend?
Of all time? Is this a trick question or..?
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Fall in love with it. Make that post the topic of the speech you're about to give the UN and become passionate about it. Let your creative juices flow but keep it profesh, of course.
How do you reset to be creative?
I listen to music and do a little jig. Somehow Drake always knows what to say to get me back on track.
What inspires or excites you?
People! There is so much to learn from every single human being. Everyone has their own interesting story to tell or intricate way of living that just sets my soul on fire.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Legalization of taxi service x Uber marriage.
