From managing an A-lister like Ranveer Singh to finding her passion and start working on herself, for herself. She loves splurging money on the things she loves that mostly includes luxurious cars & traveling the world. She has traveled almost half of the world and there’s no stopping her. With over 600k+ followers, she is widely adored on Instagram by international audiences as well and is an Internet sensation that you just can’t ignore. In a candid conversation with Arshi Naqvi, Shivalika talks about her future goals and passion for traveling.
Ex: Hi Shivalika! Tell us something about your journey from talent management for some of the renowned celebrities to making so big in the modeling world in the USA?
Shivalika: Managing an A-lister was the hardest job I have ever had. It definitely sounds fun but it’s absolutely not. It’s a lot of hours, a lot of work, no vacation, no holidays. The job made me realize that if I had to work so hard, it should be for myself because as my favorite quote says ‘If you don’t work for your dreams, someone else will hire you to work for theirs’. Since I started working on myself, it has been life-changing.
Ex: What excites you the most about Travelling?
Shivalika: Traveling gave me a new perspective on life. It taught me so many things that I wouldn’t know otherwise if I decided to stay in my own bubble. I have no ambition to make money, I only want to make it so I can travel and see the amazing world that this universe created. I love meeting new people, learning and understanding new cultures, and making friends all around the world.
Ex: Can you give us an insight into social media platforms that only an Influencer can know?
Shivalika: Being an influencer is a constant effort. You have to be persistent at it. Most people see it as ‘fame’ but honestly, it’s a business more than anything. It’s just like owning a business.
