1. Tell us about your background and journey.

Just like any other person, I was just going with the pace of life. But I somehow always had a fascination towards exploring new places of food and trying different cuisines. So I just gave a thought to myself that why not to start with the vlogging. 

It was not as easy as it seems. But yeah something has to start someday so why not today. And moreover, I’m in college so it’s like icing on the cake. And today, I feel like this is the best thing that ever happened to me.

2. When did you first decide that you wanted to create content and how did you start?

Actually, it was not like a specific day when I just decided, it was a big decision for me to get started with this, as it is not as easy to grow in here as it seems. 

So it took me some time or you can say some days, to decide that yes, I will do this no matter what the outcome will be. So, I just created my own page and started to look up different places for food where I can get good content.

3. Is vlogging and Instagram content creation a financially sustainable career?

It can be a financially sustainable career but not from the beginning of course. It is like any other business where at initial stages you would be giving only inputs and would rarely be benefitting from it. 

But it would be your dedication and hard work that would decide that will it provide a financially sustainable career or not. And if you reach a good number of followers and when you can approach brands or when brands can approach you, then yes, you can definitely build a career out of it.

4. Who is your favorite creator and why?

There is not just one but yeah I admire zingy zest. I like her content and the way she has handled her page from the beginning. She is so dedicated to it that she has made it her ultimate career.

5. How and where do you find inspiration to churn out content?

To reach out to where I have imagined myself or where I want to be is the biggest inspiration for me to churn out content and yeah watching those who are doing really well from the vlogging is somehow also a reason for my inspiration.

6. What does your typical day look like?

It depends on what the plans for that day are. Yeah whatever the plans maybe but it will include trying something new food or going to a new place. Somehow or the other I maintain a balance between college and the food meets. For me, food meets are really important for good content. So a typical day includes going to college and food meets or exploring new cafes or places to eat.

7. Which is your favorite book and why?

The Mayor of Casterbridge is among one of my favorite books because I find it really very interesting. This book is full of suspense and I like books having this type of genre.

8. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring creators?

To get successful in whatever field you choose you have to be dedicated and hard-working. In this field also one needs to be dedicated, hard-working, and have to show consistency in his/her page and should learn about the good angle of content and editing. And the most important thing is to believe in yourself.
