1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I am a Delhiite  ,completed my graduation in economics from DU and stumbled my way into the creative field ,joined theatre and  since I was always fond of the camera. 

I would click pictures in different outfits,loved to experiment with my looks and get clicked ,somehow I never took this as a job it just gave me joy to express my self through it and slowly it started growing ,the more I posted the more it grew. 

Ofcourse I never thought it would become what it did over time but the intention was expression .I am a big time movie buff so a lot of my inspiration for the pictures also came from the characters I saw ,that gave me a freedom to be whoever I wanted to be under those clothes , bringing out different versions of myself in the content I created .

2. What led you to start your page on Instagram and what is it about?

My page is about expression through different outfits ,even captions or writeups ,micro blogs that I sometimes write under posts it's all about putting myself and my thoughts out there for everyone to see being associated with brands again is a version of that.

3. How would you distinguish the term blogger from an influencer?

An Influencer is someone who can influence the choices of people who follow them through content of any form ,a blogger usually influences by words on their own platform.

4. Is it financially sustainable to be an influencer today?

It depends on the follower count and also the kind of content that you put out, the more good and engaging content you put out the more chances you have at it, it's very relative I would say .

5. What do you think influences consumer behavior?

I am still learning all about it ,it's very difficult to answer it in a sentence or two ,I learn from my audience there are some things they like which I don't expect and some they don't which I thought they would 

6. What is your idea of success or your mantra in life?

My idea of success is being able to live in peace with yourself because it's very difficult to live if you only focus on external circumstances ,very little is in our control in life and keep learning.

7. How can someone become a successful social media influencer?

To be honest I don't have an answer to that because I don't see myself as that yet but what I have learnt is content is king .

8. Which is your favorite book and why?

My favourite book is the monk who sold his Ferrari it helps you understand life and improve as a human being .
