Jesslyn is actually a huge introvert in real life. She describes herself as a really shy person and not a master in conversing with others. Therefore, she wanted to give social media a try to voice out her thoughts/opinions. Besides that, Jesslyn is a huge activist for self-love and self-empowerment so from time to time she will post pictures with empowering captions.

1. Tell us about yourself.

Hey, I’m Jesslyn aka @xyourbaejesslynx on Instagram. But you can call me Jess! Despite my confident persona online, I’m actually a huge introvert in real life. I’m really shy and bad at talking so I wanted to give social media a try, I felt like I had a voice in this platform. I may not be the boldest in speaking up about current issues but I always had a lot in my head, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share my opinion on topics I care about. I’m a huge activist for self-love and self-empowerment so from time to time I will post pictures with empowering captions. But I have gradually transitioned to a social media influencer due to my overwhelming love for fashion and influencing others.

2. What is your childhood dream? Did you make it happen?

I’m sure 99% of us wanted to be a singer when they grow up, and I’m no different. I even went as far as to auditioning for a famous Korean Entertainment company at the time, despite my mediocre singing. Obviously the results were not to my favour, but thanks to that opportunity I’ve discovered my new dream which is to influence other people positively with the platform I have.

3. Describe how you first get into being a social media influencer/blogger? Is being a social media influencer/ blogger your full time job?

As I’ve mentioned, I don’t consider myself as a social media influencer, just yet. just so happen as I post pictures with empowering captions and some people stumbled upon my account and actually likes it. Despite that, I do not do this for a living and I’m actually a full-time student in Taylor’s Lakeside.

4. What do you do as passion? 

Besides photography and fashion, I have a soft spot for writing, that’s why I took up journalism in University and occasionally writes on my personal blog where I spill my never-ending thoughts and emotions.

5. What type of influencer/blogger you would describe yourself as? Any tips for being a successful influencer?

If I had to describe myself I guess I’m more of a fashion blogger as I enjoy coordinating my outfits and sharing them on social media. As cliche as it may sound, my only advice is to be yourself, post whatever you like, wear whatever you like, don’t feel obligated to dress a certain way or pose a certain way. Just do you and people will gradually be attracted to you. I started loosing myself for a short period of time because I was too caught up in doing what I was told to do and slowly began to loose my identity. Don’t fret about the numbers, people will gradually follow you if they like your content or the message you’re trying to deliver.

6. What does the word success means to you?

Simple, success to me is doing what I enjoy doing and making a living out of it.

7. What is your mantra for living?

To be honest with you I had to search up the meaning for mantra, but I would say my only slogan to life is keep living, you only get one chance to leave your mark in this world, so don’t do something that you might end up regretting. Your life is precious, so appreciate it. 

8. If you are given a million dollars, what would you do with that money?

Honestly a million dollars is too much for me, my cheap ass can’t even spend three hundred dollars in Sephora. If I had a million I wouldn’t know what to do with it so I think I might donate most of it. As for the remaining, I might give it to my parents or open up a business of my own.

9. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought in your life? and why?

As I said, my cheap ass can’t even spend three hundred bucks in Sephora so my biggest splurge in life is probably on my Mac laptop, I needed it to edit videos at the time, for my Youtube channel.

10. What is your proudest achievement or accomplishment you have achieved in life?

My proudest achievement as of now was being invited to Samsung Galaxy latest A8/A8+ launch and Taylor’s Lakeside’s #BoldForwardMove campaign alongside online personalities such as TheMingThing and Talitha.

11. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers/ influencers and why? Who would you love to collaborate with?

Lilymaymac! She’s really gorge and I love her taste in fashion. But that’s a little too far fetch, breathing the same air as her would be a huge honour!

12. What would you say that is the biggest challenge about being a influencer?

Balancing school and daily life with work. Sometimes it’s really difficult to attend events and do sponsorship posts while maintaining a normal life. You need to be very organised and have good time management skills in order to meet deadlines. Loosing your identity is a huge obstacle too, but if you’re able to stay true to yourself while doing so, then you’re all good.

13. If you are given a chance to invent something, what would it be?

An app to read peoples’ minds! So that I can impress people by telling them what their next move will be hahahaha!

14. If you have a magic ward, what is the one thing you would ask for and why?

I would ask for a million more wishes and then wish for the world to be a little less corrupted, to demolish inequalities and for the world to be a little less judgemental.

15. What advice would you give to other aspiring influencers? any general advice to those have big dreams?

It’s totally okay to dream big, but start off with mini goals first. Plan smaller goals that will eventually lead you to the bigger picture and work hard towards it. Most importantly, do you and enjoy what you do! No point choosing a career path that you have no interest in, you’ll regret it in the future so better late than never!
