What I Love About Being An Instagrammer & YouTuber
For me, fashion and beauty are hard to put into words as there are no correct answers. But I believe fashion and beauty are how you express yourself and define your own identity.
Fashion and beauty in the public’s eye are constantly changing, but it is up to your own personal interpretation that makes it truly “yours”.
My Fashion Style
My fashion style I would say, is more minimalistic. I like to mix and match casual pieces with a twist of trendy and bold accessories. I like to stay up to date with the latest styles through social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest. I also stay up to date with runway looks as well.
Do You Post Specific Photos On Social Media?
There’s not a specific type of photo I post on Instagram, however, I do enjoy sharing moments of my life with my friends, outfits, selfies and etc. I would usually take a lot of photos and look through them and see which ones I like the most.
Getting Inspiration To Start My YouTube Channel
During March this year, the pandemic hit New York very hard, and we were all forced to go into mandatory quarantine. I wanted to do something meaningful for myself while staying home. I hope to use YouTube as a tool to record my life and share my growth.
Deciding The Type Of Content To Create
I usually keep a list on my phone and I will just write down topic ideas when I feel inspired. There is so much time and work that goes into making one video. My first video took me more than two weeks.
I usually start with writing down a draft and go into filming after. Filming can often times take more than two hours. Editing is the most complicated part as there are lots to consider such as subtitles and effects. So I would say, to perfect a video, it usually can take up to one week.
Misconceptions About Instagrammers & YouTubers
People would think Instagrammers and YouTubers and making “easy money”. After entering the YouTube field, I found out how much hard work goes into it, especially when you are in a beginning phase.
Sharon Tao – I was born in Los Angeles, California. I grew up in Taiwan, and I decided to move to New York City to pursue my dream for fashion and marketing. I always enjoyed watching YouTube videos growing up. I love to sharing my life with people on social media which is why I started my own YouTube channel. I hope one day I can also become someone that can inspire people in any type of way.
