I’ve only just embarked this incredible journey, but my agency and I see commercial and editorial clients in my near future. On my first trip to the city, we were focused on building my book and one of my shoots was published for Vogue Italia.

Posting quality content on Instagram has been essential to my career. There was a time where I’d post rather frequently but the content wasn’t my best. I now know that I have people who are waiting and willing to wait for quality content. I believe Instagram has played a major role in my budding career. In fact, I found the agency I am signed to by way of Instagram.

The saying “every rose has its thorns” comes to mind when I think about social media. It is a beautiful place and an essential tool for business, creatives, entrepreneurs and upcoming models. However, it is also a place that is dark and freighting. More often than not, social media tends to perpetuate the age old narrative that beauty has a certain size, shape or shade. This ancient fallacy’s time is quickly coming to an end. There is an increasing number of forums, blogs and social media pages embracing diversity and body positivity. We have a long way to go in changing the narrative around beauty, but there are so many people actively chipping away at the mistruths and rebuilding new perspectives. The opportunities I’m receiving, this article for example, is proof that standards are evolving in such a beautiful way. I am very hopeful for the state of social media and people’s perception.

When I started putting my photos on Instagram, I came to realise I subjected myself to trolls. At first, some things were hurtful. I only show love so it was hard to understand why there is so much hate out there. I’m learning I don’t need to respond to trolls. They are hurting in their life and I understand that. At first, I was overwhelmed. I had to take a moment to use my support network to realise I needed to ignore them. Most don’t know how to respond to what they’ve never seen. I believe in kindness but I also believe there is so much strength in silence too. Silence is just as much a response as anything else.

There has been so much love in response to my story, so thats what I focus on. I’ve come up with plans to stay in touch with my growing fan base without making myself go crazy responding to every single DM. I’m really learning the importance of having balance with social media.
