THE REASON BEHIND STYLEBYEMMANUELA
What got me started? : – Well, to start off, fashion is something that has stuck with me ever since I was a little girl. My love for fashion at that time may have come from the looks I had seen some of my fav celebrities have on back then. However, at this point, fashion is more than just what I thought it was while I was a little girl. Fashion has become a craft to me. I believe there’s so much out there in terms of what either fashion bloggers, YouTubers or even designers are doing out there!
And, so I decided to make fashion a form of performance to myself. I remember back when I was in Nigeria, I was not so crazy about watching fashion related videos on YouTube. This was because I felt there was really nothing on YouTube that would really push me to love fashion the way I love it now. But boy! was I wrong because the YouTube world of fashion is just full of young creatives. That’s when I decided that this whole fashion YouTube game was not a joke at all. – I began using my Instagram account often after secondary school but, it was not until I moved to Canada that my perception of Instagram itself changed. because I convinced myself to make my Instagram, my starting point. I can honestly tell you that, I never thought I would be able to start up a YouTube channel because I felt that platform wasn’t for me. Oh well, I tried challenging myself and I’m so happy with the progress I’ve made ever since I started my YouTube Channel in January 2017!
What drives me to keep doing what I am doing, first of all, starts with the kind of influence I have gotten from other content creators because that feeling is AMAZING. Also, I try my best to constantly do my research because I believe without PROPER RESEARCH, I will not be performing the way I am today. Moreover, I continue to encourage people who want to start as content creators to always ensure they seek necessary help from other content creators because this step is beneficial in growing as a successful content creator in whatever niche you aspire to be, whether it’s fashion, photography, cooking, etc.
Basically, StylebyEmmanuela is that open space for me to share my passion and creativity. whether it’s fashion, beauty or lifestyle-related.
