Ex: Tell us about a change you’ve seen in the digital blogging space since you started out your journey? How has this space evolved?
Sejal: Digital blogging space is constantly growing. Now, people are more accepting of this career path. Space has evolved immensely over the years as now, the audience is aware of the content they want to consume and thus, the creators are putting out as relatable, useful, and entertaining content they can. Earlier I would find it difficult to even explain my profession but now we are getting recognized even in traditional media which feels great!
Ex: A technology you wished you’d invented?
Sejal: Airpods! I think they are such a good device for anyone! Creators especially! I’ve used them in a million different ways to create content
Ex: What’s been your favorite encounter with a fan so far? (DMs included!)
Sejal: On a family trip on the train to Amritsar, this girl figured out which day I was leaving via my stories and somehow even my coach reading the names on the train! She came to our seats and said ‘yes finally found you!’ My grandparents were so shocked and I was too! She had an adorable scrapbook with her with my pictures that I signed and I was in complete awe. BUT thank god this wasn’t a creepy guy, I’ve been careful with my stories since then!
Ex: Social Media is known to expose vulnerabilities, with influencers being at the epicenter. How do you deal with the dark side that comes with the medium?
Sejal: It is not easy. I love my job and I am grateful for everyone that loves my work but there are people who will always want to bring you down. Most of the time, I try to not let the hate get to me. I think taking a break, meditating, and believing in yourself is the only way ahead!
What does success mean to you?
Sejal: A side product of doing something that fulfills me and keeps going every day, even if some days are bad.
Ex: As Fashion-Tech is on the rise, what is your take on this new style of couture? Do you think it’s here to stay?
Sejal: Fashion and Tech are the two things I love. I think it’s a beautiful combination. Yes, it is here to stay. I am continually impressed with how creative people get day by day.
