Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
One of the things that I’ve loved the most is traveling and getting to know different cultures. I’m originally from Venezuela, and when I moved to New York City I was amazed by all the activities and knowledge that this city offers, so I decided to share my experience of New York City with all the people that follow my journey as an immigrant.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Well, I started visiting different restaurants around the city, and sharing with my followers the food that I was eating, when many of them started to ask me for recommendations about places to go and restaurants to visit. And that’s how I decided that it would be great for me to keep investigating more and finding exciting places to share with my followers.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Listen to your audience. You are where you are because of them. You’re the expert, and they want to know what you know. Share that knowledge, and help others to understand your journey and how you got where you are.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Like I mentioned before, I’m grateful to the people that interact with me the most, because they told me that they liked what I was doing, and they were really interested in it. I guess I just needed it a push to lose the fear.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to maintain my followers aware that we are all humans, and sometimes we forgot not just to be kind to one another, but to be kind to ourselves. I personally have struggled a lot with that, and I know I’m not the only one.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Better times will come” That was something that a special person for me told me the first time when I was 15 and is something that I’ll never forget. Sometimes we are going through a very dark time, and we tend to forget that the sun will come out, and we’ll get pass it.
