Colombian Blogger

Andrea didn’t set out to become a big time social influencer. She actually just enjoyed making videos with her friends, as she mentioned in an interview with Zoom Magazine. Her friends loved what she was doing, but it wasn’t until another friend suggested trying to make it her career that she decided to give social media stardom a try. Mostly, she says she did it out of a need for money, as she was new to Columbia and had no work.

It was a big gamble, but it paid off for her. In less than two years, she’s attracted tons of followers and has generated a lot of opportunities for herself.

There are no slick production values and cutesy setups here. Her videos are the style almost anyone could do right from their own home, and she has an infectious, animated style that draws people in.
