Instagram is her territory. Everyone follows her – yes, that’s including your boyfriends. Truth be told, becoming a celebgram wasn’t her initial purpose. Dindra Nashriyah just wanted to share some of her OOTDs in her early days in Instagram, until she focuses being a celebgram since two years ago. This 24 year-old girl often shares her travel photos and captures her moments through her stories and feeds. Often spotted with her peers Nazla Alifa and Rachel Theresia, the three are the Instagang to follow. Course we had to have a chat with this beaut.
Does being an influencer bring the best of you, or the other way around?
“It does, I like having a platform to show people about myself and spreading positivity to people who follow me. Through traveling, I can give people travel tips, which spots to visit during their holiday. I also have a YouTube channel, but it’s not as active as my Instagram account. I find making videos during vacation is a bit hard to do because I have to focus on my camera instead of enjoying the moment.”
When you just started, has it ever crossed your mind that you’d have this heap of followers?
“Honestly, I never would’ve thought that I would gain this many followers, and even earn an income out of it. I wouldn’t say that I’m succesful, because I still have a lot of things to explore.”
Speaking of your traveler side, which city is your fave? And any interesting story behind the city?
“London! New friends, new experiences, witnessing new things. I felt enriched after my travel to London. Bu overall, I’m very thankful for all the travel experiences I’ve been having so far.”
Seeing that you’re always on the go with your hectic travel schedule, have you always prepped to go?
“I’m actually one of those last-minute-packers. A tips though, make sure you have travel insurance, especially if you’re about to travel abroad or somewhere far.”
Traveling from one place to another within weeks or months, do you ever feel down?
“Mood swing most probably. I’d get cranky most of the times, but thankfully I got my friends with me.”
If you weren’t a social media influencer, where do you see yourself?
“Well, I like to travel a lot. Ever since I was young, I always wanted to travel the world. I guess I’m living my dream, and that’s enough for now. Though I’ve been thinking about having my own travel agency, prolly that’s my long-term plan.”
