Hey there, I'm Leah
Content Creator | Blogger
Thank you SO much for stopping by! It truly means a lot to me that you'd be interested in me enough to click on my 'about me' section.
For me, the idea of being a "blogger" started with my YouTube obsession back when I was about 10 years old. My friends and I used to make terribly embarrassing videos in hopes of hitting the viral jackpot. We were infatuated with these YouTube personalities and wanted so badly to be "YouTuber's" like them! I will be forever grateful to these YouTube pioneers because they were ultimately the ones to spark the creative fire that has evolved over the years and still burns in me today.
I began taking things seriously back in 2018 when I realized that I could leverage my Instagram following of about 4,000 people to start a 'microblog'. Dedicating all of my spare time to reading books, listening to podcasts and watching youtube videos about influencing and content creation, I developed a foundation to start growing my Instagram. I began pitching to brands like Daniel Wellington, and Tuft & Needle to promote products that I already loved in exchange for more products. As my audience grew and my photography skills increased, more and more brands wanted to work with me
until— BAM, I got my first paid collaboration with HelloFresh In December of 2018. Ahh, what a great feeling that was! I finally felt like my hard work was paying off (literally).
I am constantly growing, learning, and evolving with the industry and am so excited to see where this road takes me. Instagram (and social media in general) has introduced me to some of my best friends and I truly enjoy learning about and talking to the people who follow along on my adventures every day! If you're one of those people— I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart because, without you, this dream of mine wouldn't be possible. You don't know how much you mean to me! Much love, friends.
