“Throughout my childhood, I had a good sense of aesthetics and loved dressing up. I wanted to venture into fashion as a full-time career but didn’t have the confidence to. This self-doubt mainly crept in because of the various peer groups that I was surrounded by. I was misunderstood and majorly judged during my formative years. In response, I would either try to brush off the negativity or change my ways to fit in and find friends.
Back then, the concept of blogging was relatively new and seemed interesting. So, despite the emotional trauma I was going through, I decided to give it a try. To my complete surprise, my content was well received and appreciated since the start. However, everything came to a screeching halt when I was diagnosed with crippling depression due to the persistent, indirect bullying by my peers. It slowed down my progress and hindered my zest to explore new things.
But what helped me bounce back was my decision to join NIFT. It was my dream college and my parents finally conceded to my decision to enrol there. The institution gave me a wealth of knowledge and the freedom to try new things. Not to mention, it gave a best friend who I am so thankful for. She was the blessing in disguise who kept me centred and encouraged me to hustle back to continue my blogging journey.
Today, life has most definitely come a full circle. I am blessed to have a loyal bunch of followers, who subscribe to my channel for how real and authentic the content feels. I tear up at times when I hear young girls saying that I’ve inspired them or even when my entire family is recognized sometimes at a public space. It’s their love that makes me strive to create quality content. My aim, in the coming days is to make fashion less intimidating and ultimately more accessible to everyone!”
