Talk us through a typical day of Imogen Leaver...
I would say every day is different for me. Because I model and act, I am often balancing a variety of things at one time. It could be a shoot, a day of castings, getting invited to influencer events, or simply finding a coffee shop to hide away in with my laptop and get some work done! I am currently out in LA for 3 months which has been amazing. I am such a sun lover so that alone keeps me in such a good mood!
How has being an influencer changed your life?
I find it how crazy the world of social media has appeared and changed everything so dramatically. I notice that people would often rather book me for social media postings than a modelling job these days. For brands being able to have insights into our audience is so vital for them, they know exactly who their target is and who will see their advertising. It’s very clever really. Technology amazes me…So I guess in a way I feel like it’s changed things for everyone, but for me personally I just love that I can do a job from something I love!
Tell us your goals for 2019... Is there anything particular you'd like to achieve this year?
This year I really want to focus on my acting, that’s definitely my priority right now. But the beauty of social media means I can also work anytime/anywhere, so I want to continue creating gorgeous content on my travels for my brand partners as it’s something I genuinely love doing.
Last but certainly not least, what advice would you give someone looking to become an influencer?
Only ever be true to yourself. It is your platform at the end of the day and a reflection on yourself, do things that make you happy and feel a sense of pride! And remember, never compare yourself to others, we are all individual and that is the beauty of life! Good luck xx
