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?
Somya: Back then it wasn’t, even so, commercialized there weren’t as many brands and influencers as well. So yes I think it’s become more of a profession now and not just one’s passion.
Ex: Can you give us an insight into social media platforms that only an Influencer can know?
Somya: One thing which I think they might not realise from the outside is that it’s not roses all the way. It’s really difficult to shoot, edit and churn out content daily and it takes a lot of commitment.
Ex: What would be your calling in a parallel universe? (Alternate career options)
Somya: If not this then I would have tried my hands on acting.
Ex: What’s been your favorite encounter with a fan so far? (DMs included!)
Somya: All of them have been super special to me, because all of them are so sweet, I can’t choose one.
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?
Somya: To be honest, I have been really lucky that I haven’t had to go through a phase like that, I hardly get negative comments, also I have learnt to ignore those. Also, my family and especially my mom always tell me to stay chill and not let things affect me.
Ex: What does success mean to you?
Somya: I have always believed in being happy and spreading happiness and that’s what it is for me. I just want to keep creating content and make my audience happy.
Ex: When was the first time you bought your dream makeup product and which one was it?
Somya: When I started, I wasn’t into makeup at all. Later when I started going for photoshoots and stuff is when I discovered makeup so I didn’t really have a dream product.
Ex: What would you tell young girls when it comes to ideals of beauty that our society has set up?
Somya: Keep your head high, work hard, be kind and rest will follow, also remember to keep smiling.
