This week we catch up with gaming influencer, Jessa...
How long have you been blogging and what motivated you to start?
I have been blogging for 3 years, in 2016 I joined the Gaming Community on Twitter and I started to gain a following. Around 2017 I started to get brands contacting me about partnerships.From there on I have been motivated to become more professional and focused more on getting brands to work with me by creating reviews and promoting their brands via Twitch and Instagram.My goal is to be able to become a full time brand ambassador for big name brands! As well as making many friends who enjoy doing the same thing.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
So far I have struggled with getting good photos to post and maintaining active followers, I am currently in a progress of decorating my bedroom to be able to create a better background for my photos as well as purchasing a big mirror for my fashion posts. I will keep on trying to improve my Instagram by not giving up and finding the right kind of photos to post, to make me stand out more!Im a very shy girl but I won’t let that overcome me!
What's a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me is trying focus on my mental health by relaxing and doing activities like colouring and word searches, I often play video games and stream on Twitch. I love to make new friends and spend time with my family. One day I would love to travel the world and meet new people I have spent 5 years of my life learning over 11 different languages in hopes of someday joining the army as a translator.
Finally, If you had one piece of advice to give to other aspiring influencers, what would it be?
My advice is to keep on going even if things seem difficult because one day you will create an amazing viral post and suddenly blow up! Scroll through Instagram make friends with other influencers and take inspiration from big influencers and don’t forgot hashtags! I believe everyone can achieve their goals when they work hard towards it.
