(C.M): can you tell us about any difficult situations you’ve had to face through social media and how you overcame them ?
(HT): social media is a great place to build your own platform but sometimes facing judgmental people who love to bring down other people is the worst to deal with. being myself who loves to express herself through fashion and art etc I dealt with very hurtful words from people on social media because IM stepping out of the comfort zone but I taught myself to not let them affect me in any way as long I’m doing what I love and not harming anyone at the end haters will always hate.
(C.M): If you didn’t have your platform where do you think you’ll be now ? or what would you be working on ?
