And my account slowly started growing. People started recognizing my work and my name. I went from a few hundred followers, to a few thousand, to tens of thousands. I was becoming a plant influencer. I started getting offers from plant companies that wanted to work with me. I got brand deals, even book deals.
I never thought I would be a social media influencer. But I realized I love producing plant content. I love producing plant videos. I love sharing my knowledge with all of you.
Everything started to make sense. My move to the US made sense. This is where I was meant to be, this is where I was meant to stay.
I created accounts on other platforms – TikTok, YouTube, Facabook, Twitter… and kept producing content.
Now, I do what I love. I love what I do. I’m living my dream. I live in Washington DC, doing things that make me happy, helping others discover a happier life with houseplants. My accounts are being followed by almost half a million people. And my videos have been seen over 60 million times.
I’m grateful to have this opportunity. I’m grateful to my family and friends for support, for giving me the strength as I was starting a new life 5,000 miles away from home. I’m grateful to all of you who have been through this journey with me, supporting me, without you I wouldn’t be where I am today.
This is my story of my journey and my personal transformation. Thank you for taking this journey with me! I believe my best time is yet to come!
