1. Tell us about your background and journey.

This is Mittali Arora and I was born in Jind, Haryana. I was brought up in Chandigarh. If I talk about my journey, I started it in 2017 and it is still going on. I have been into this modelling career since the past 3 years after I transformed my body. And now my dream is to be famous and to be known for my smile.

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

Before I started modelling, I was 80kgs and then lost 23kgs. This was one of the biggest transformations that I have observed in myself since then and honestly, this confidence influenced me to create content. 

I started getting myself clicked from my siblings (brother, sister), friends and whosoever knew me and I could see myself as a different person in all those clicked pictures. Honestly, I actually wanted to see something different out of me and my weight loss transformation journey helped me live a good lifestyle. And this was enough motivation for me to become a model.

3. Is blogging and content creation a financially sustainable career?

Talking about myself, I think I haven’t met the financial standards of blogging/content creation. But in general, it totally depends on your uniqueness of handling stuff that is how you handle your style, your content and many other things. In my perception, it can be a stable career for a lifetime but if and only if you are consistent. 

So yes, blogging can be a financially sustainable career based on your consistent efforts. I started growing in 2017 and I am still growing. Obviously, there are no free lunches, you have to work hard for it. 

I am very full day energetic when I get photos clicked and it is my source of income for living.  It boosts me every now and then and gives reason to smile

4. Who is your favourite creator and why?

Actually, most of the people idolize someone professionally and get inspiration from the. But talking about myself, there is not any favourite creator of mine as such but yes I like some from fashion, some from beauty. What I do actually is, I pick each good quality from each one.

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

For me the whole world is inspirational, I look into the areas where I CAN and I do it. If I talk about India specifically, there is the culmination of different people and different cultures here in India i.e at one end I appreciate the attire’s of Bengalis and at the other end from India’s corner, I laud the robes of people from Punjab. I am very lucky to be born in this country.

6. What does your typical day look like?

There is no such a particular routine or typical day for me. After getting up I work on things in which I need some improvement. Like makeup, try something new, some sort of new medium in painting, sometimes lazy, and sometimes too much exercise. Each day is different and I keep learning new things.

7. Which is your favourite book and why?

I have hardly read books, but I remember reading “The Secret” that is still the favourite.

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

I would say just “Keep going - Heaven’s got a good plan for you.” Apart from this “Believe in yourself,” All you need is to compare yourself to nobody else in the world. The grass is always greener on the other side is a myth. Every day just learn and do your best.
