Feel free to ask her anything, send in topics you want her to speak on, tell her a funny joke, send her your favourite gluten-free recipes, and even just say hi.
because connection is everything.
How did you become a content creator?
Like probably most other creatives have said, it was pure luck and pure confusion.
When I started, I really only thought about sharing pictures of myself to make me love my body. From there I started to gain a following of beautiful people around the world that enjoyed seeing my content every single day. It became fuel to the fire.
One year in I signed with a talent agency and started collaboration with brands I love so that I could continue to create content but have it be more sustainable $.
I actually almost quit. This past year during covid, I suffered a complete mental breakdown and was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I was at war with the thoughts in my head, and I just couldn’t understand how people would still want to look up to me anymore. But of-course you all stuck by me and actually developed a stronger connection in understanding that we all struggle and it should be a natural thing to see the ugly moments on social media.
Becoming a content creator has been the best lucky decision of my life.
Do you have any food restrictions?
I have decided my gut hates me.
It has been a long journey of discovering my intolerances and I am starting to believe IBS is very much a factor…
but as it currently stands I am:
- gluten- & dairy-free
- alcohol-free ( for digestive & mental health reasons)
- potentially intolerant to peanut butter which would be the end of life itself
Digestive Enzyme are our frens.
What are your favourite ways to practice mental wellness?
One of the hardest parts of mental illness is getting stuck in a downward spiral of thoughts, often where you are not sure what is real and what is not, and you don’t know the way out.
It takes immense practice and strength to change the thought patterns in your brain. I remember when I thought it was impossible and I couldn’t believe I would get better. But it did, and I got better. I know you probably hear that all the time and it’s annoying. It annoyed me. But I promise it does.
My favourite ways right now to practice wellness are:
- listening to really loud edm/house music while driving.
- taking a shower and thinking of just the present moment, such as the water falling down my face.
- meditating on my linen bolster set while listening to the Calm App *not sponsored*
- taking a nap
- AND CUDDLING THE FLOOFS OF-COURSE!
hang in there <3
you have been very open about your journey with therapy. what has your experience been like?
It’s been the best and the worst. When I first started therapy, I was completely against it. I could not let go of my stereotypical views of therapy. I was determined to figure out everything for myself, and only really could accept the help when I was at my lowest. Looking back, I am SO proud of myself because the moment I knew I was in trouble, I let it all in. I started medication, I forced difficult conversations with loved one, I screamed, I cried, I felt emotion I had hidden for years. I no longer put other’s needs before my own. I no longer felt powerless.
It was such a treat to go through it with my followers watching along the way. I was terrified to share it at first but didn’t think I could continue my page without being completely honest. To know that I connected with people around who had considered & started therapy because of me was heckin emotional. I connected with people who decided to finally start the medication they needed. I connected with people who were suffering just as much as me, and it made me stronger. Even though I like to be in hermit mode alot, connection is everything.
Quick! would you rather eat the same meal every day for the rest of your life or never use instagram again?
As an avid social media addict, I can distract myself with funny videos while I eat that same damn meal every single damn day.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
My therapist told me to stop running away from this question as a recovering perfectionist. Somehow I think that if I set some future goals and don’t meet them, I will spontaneously combust.
In 10 years I see myself happy as an entire being. I see myself in love with someone, maybe growing a family depending on if the world is still not ending, and kicking ass as a women in the entrepreneurial world. I see myself in a small town, surrounded by the ocean and animals. I see myself in peace with my purpose. I see myself in peace without a purpose.
