1. Tell us about your background and journey.

There's nothing like media, movies in my background. I am graduated in B.sc Hons nursing from Aiims, Bhopal. During my graduation, I realized that my interest is somewhere else and soon after completing that, I shifted to Mumbai to pursue my passion and started my Master's in Mass Communication and Journalism. 

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

There's a very special thing about Bombay. It never lets you sit and while struggling to understand the city and the field, I've realized that why not give it a try to create my own content? And just like that, I started making that in 2018. 

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

It can be but it requires patience. I also feel that I'm a person who likes to play safe so I usually try to have something other than just my Instagram. 

Maybe because I'm not that big right now that I can earn completely through it but surely if you'll be consistent, one day you can just have your digital career as a full-time job. 

4. Who is your favorite creator and why?

My favorite creator in India is Mostly sane because she's so confident in her skin. I like creators who are so raw. I think to see her profile, people can never feel dull or insecure and that's the major thing in social media.

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

I mostly create Movies and songs. I think I'm a big movie lover and I love to read characters and stories. 

6. What does your typical day look like?

Haha, My typical day is very busy. I have a full-time job as Casting Associate so that keeps me the busy the whole day and whenever I get free time like in lunch breaks or after work hours, I create content for my page and try to do as many things as I can. By the end of it, I always say that '24 hours is so less time' 

7. Which is your favorite book and why?

'Who says you can't, you do' I'm a big self-help book lovers and this one gave me hope.

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

Don't think who's liking your content and who's not, keep posting. Be consistent. It may annoy your friends but when you'll gain followers, they will also come to you to congratulate so keep going.
