From an Engineer to an Aspiring Blogger
Posted on 1 August, 2020 by SYBERSIFY SOLUTIONS LLP
I was a bright student to begin with. I’d completed my school education in 2012 and following my fondness for Math, enrolled in an engineering college and got through.
Always a rank holder from school, I believed Engineering was my destiny. But the reality was far from it. The simple numbers, algebra and trigonometry that I was so fond of was suddenly a curriculum in coding and although I managed to do well, my carefully curated plan for my future didn’t bring me joy anymore.
I quickly realised in my last year of engeenering that this was not my cup of tea.
I channeled all my energy and tried my luck at extracurriculars in college and voila, found myself drawn to fashion & lifestyle.
It began with me walking the ramp in two grand shows for college, that led to some unprecedented popularity and I somehow even bagged the miss gorgeous title.
I wasn’t doing something gregarious, but something creative, and it made me feel extremely fulfilled and happy.
And so I decided to pursue my happiness, and started looking for jobs that fit my passion. I was young and naive and didn’t know any better then.
I believed to be in a creative field, fashion & lifestyle was the only way.
Until I came across the company Witty feed, a content media company, right here in my city and just applied. And the world of digital marketing and content creation welcomed me.
I’m a huge believed in taking risks even if things might not work out, but it did! and I got selected too.
And that’s how I began my first job. I learnt all there was about social media. The boosting, the promoting, the posting. Every nitty gritty of it before moving to their video team and started making content while starring in some of them too. I made close to 80 videos with the amazing team there and naturally, found some popularity along the way.
But it wasn’t enough. My soul craved for more creative outlets and that’s when I decided to start my own blog, THE SOUL STYLE.
I lived and breathed fashion, I knew how to work a camera, I knew all there was to know about social media. It felt right and befitting to have my own curated content and though I was nervous, I was excited too.
And that’s how I began my blogging career.
Soon, I resigned from my job and started doing this full time. Lots of love , long shoots, from doing it all alone to doing it with a team, I ended up being awarded for my work in 2019, and pretty soon, Indore’s top blogger became a synonym for me and my work.
I was called to attend events and be the guest in metro cities too. My work started getting recognition from huge agencies and soon I was marching to the tune of my own music while doing what I loved and being an active earning member of my family.
From Getting featured in bnb magazine to being flown business class and an all-inclusive 7-star stay, I saw all my dream come true, just because I believed in my passion and didn’t let the haters and negative thoughts get to me.
The confidence and independence one experiences from being financially sound, is indescribable. My parents and my city were and still are proud of me.
I was always clear about the voice and vision of my blog as I am a big believer that every shape and Colour is beautiful, hence I always strived to share styling tips on my blog for every girl out there.
I wanted to style souls of people irrespective of all other factors.
And it’s safe to say It has worked out pretty well. To this day, I wake up excited for my work, another photoshoot, another frame, to try another styling hack, and to try to reach out to lovely girls out there looking to be inspire.
At the end, I would like to leave a message for the budding girls out there.
TRUST yourself. Don’t give up on your dream just because it seems so unattainable or only for the rich ones out there.
You don’t need expensive outfits and accessories to become a blogger. I know I didn’t. Just wear what you own with a panache and exude confidence in everything you do.
Be creative, consume relevant content and then discover your style on the way to the top. I promise I’m waiting up there for you, cheering the loudest.
