  • what's the what does Peggy Bundy say I don't know what is love and marriage

  • again carriage I have heard I just want to keep hearing me sing

  • nice work time for a little interview

  • I started on YouTube and Instagram or first was a I mean I was already on

  • Instagram that like everyone else I was just I was sharing and before those

  • things like that when I graduated my certification or list nutrition I

  • started seeing clients and I understood that it's really not it's not gonna get

  • me to spread the information to a wider audience

  • so I got a little frustrated so I decided what can you know what can I do

  • really to bring all that information to as many people as possible and help them

  • that's when I started a blog which was kind of late for blogging so a blog in

  • 2016 was already kind of a yesterday's news so when I started the blog I

  • figured that it you know it's very hard to connect to people with writing things

  • like they can't really understand you know where I'm growing and what message

  • I'm trying to bring across so then I figured okay I'm gonna do something

  • really scary something I have no idea about and that's gonna be YouTube so

  • that was my first introduction to you

  • know I started with my phone I still shoot some videos on my phone to be

  • honest and that's I think the big miss perception there are a lot of people is

  • it misperceptions miss Coates misconception that a lot of people have

  • today they think that you need all this fancy equipment and the right house and

  • the right background and honestly I still like use tables and books as my

  • stands and I should in my house most of the time i YouTubed how to edit videos

  • and that's how I learned how to edit videos I basically learned everything

  • from the internet

  • what do you like best about me what I like best about being an influencer is

  • sharing my life and you know the ups and downs and just like kind of real life

  • tips with people I love that today people can connect to something real I

  • remember when I was a teenager the only people I could like tried to look up to

  • are like either models in the magazines or someone that is very untouchable so I

  • really liked that little I mean that's a little anymore but the community that we

  • built where I feel that I really have a personal strong connection with my

  • audience and I'm not so much as like an expert I don't want to be an expert I

  • just want to be like you know like their friend or their biggest sister or

  • someone that they can kind of go to to you know get some help yeah yeah

  • yeah so initially I wanted to get a job in McDonald's and my mother was against

  • it when I had a birthday party with Jewish people it's like a bat mitzvah so

  • at 12 years old I had this big party and we got a photographer to come and take

  • photos of me my mom saw something that I've never even thought about I was a

  • very shy very kind of people didn't even know I was going to school with them

  • like I was very invisible as a kid and she saw something she's like you really

  • you're you're a little different on camera it would be more confident you

  • you know you're very different than in real life so 12 years old it was very

  • young but the photographer's told her you need to look into getting her into

  • modeling industry so when I was 15 and I was pursuing a career at McDonald my

  • mother said okay all your friends are working there that's great let's try

  • modeling and if it's not gonna work if no one accepts you then I can you can go

  • work at McDonald's so I was like so happening for me I'm so getting that job

  • at McDonald's what happened is that that she submitted photos of me to this

  • online competition it was actually for the russian-speaking like people in in

  • Israel and I won we went to get the prize and it was a horrific night for me

  • but Elite model agency was in there and the guys saw me and he contacted us

  • after and that's kind of how it started so from something very terrible that

  • night was very terrible turned to be something I mean a full-on career 100%

  • it was my mom I did not want to do it that was not something that came

  • naturally to me I think that as teenage girls just being at schools or like out

  • there in the world we always compare herself to like regular people so for

  • someone that was so insecure and Sur shy to get into the modeling industry and

  • start going to castings and compete against all these gorgeous girls it was

  • it was a very it was like you know when you throw someone in the water

  • you sink or swim that was that yeah I

  • hate the world balance because it's a very tricky word it doesn't really exist

  • and I think that a lot of people think that you know it's something that we

  • need to aspire to I think that for me balance changes every day some days you

  • know tips more towards work and I'm more into debt that kind of area or the other

  • days when I feel like okay I'm way too much there I'm gonna start tipping it

  • towards my kids or myself or so I think they're just being in tune with myself

  • and being aware of what's going on in my home and with me when I need a break

  • when my kids need me so I think it's just kind of self-awareness and being in

  • tune with what's going on in my life yeah that's how I find that balance

  • Lebon rosewater mist my wallet obviously air pause because I listen to a lot of

  • podcasts and a charger yeah currently I love goop I love so what is a soul

  • conversation with Oprah Oprah's podcast I love how I built this yeah it's really

  • good oh thank you so much thank you and yeah that's some of the ones I'm

  • kind of listening to now what's my favorite fashion trend

  • no my god I hate that yeah I don't know if it's happening still but it will

  • always happen for me yeah definitely Snickers I think that in general the

  • fact that's kind of the more laid-back chilled you know like tents that are

  • sweatpants things like that I love that it came back into style and people can

  • wear it to different places comfort is everything so that's definitely

  • something that I I'm into yeah I mean I think that this industry is still at the

  • beginning of it because it's gonna get bigger and bigger because this is the

  • new media I think that what a lot of people do wrong that I see is that

  • they're trying to imitate someone else they look at other people that are

  • either fashion fashion bloggers or beauty bloggers and they're doing the

  • same thing and the whole concept of influencers is to bring your own

  • personal stamp to the world to bring your own authentic self and that's how

  • people connect to you and at the end of the day the way to build an audience is

  • to tell your story and you'll find your tribe just to be authentic and real and

  • not trying to be someone that you're not it's very important what's your favorite

  • kind of

  • my favorite kind of YouTube videos to make are probably the motivational

  • self-love ones although I love fashion and beauty and things like that but for

  • me I really get excited and passionate knowing and even receiving feedback

  • about the videos you know smell small lot of things that remind people maybe

  • to stop once in a while or breathe a little or not to be so hard on

  • themselves I think we all need you know that little cheerleader to be like

  • you're gonna so I love making goes

  • I would probably be somewhere in Europe wandering the streets trying to

  • understand the purpose for my life I was very very very lucky to meet my husband

  • at that point that I met him because he really not only made me believe in

  • myself but also showed me the style of myself that I never thought I had or

  • possessed oh my god I don't want to think where I would be without him it's

  • very sad okay we're good thank you

  • you

  • yeah

  • thanks lady thank you nice to meet you so nice to meet you downstairs

  • we little meet
