We had the good fortune of connecting with Shekiaa Bellavarie and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shekiaa, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson my career has taught me is not letting fear or other peoples opinions stop me from trying something new and accompanied goals set for myself instead take that criticism and obstacles and turn it into a positive .
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
YouTube is a big part of my life now it feels like second nature . I have anxiety which makes it hard for me to be in public places for a long time some days or truly be myself so when I get on camera in my room I can be authentic and choose what I want to bring out to the world I’ve learned so much about myself through YouTube Learning how to make attractive thumbnails and intros things I never knew i could do until I tried . I’m just me and I’ve learned to not let what others say affect me because I am my biggest competitor. Through Prayer and my YouTube I’ve met some pretty amazing people that I am working with in regards to starting up my business . So what I will say is this Be consistent, Stay true to yourself and Become your brand and the right people and opportunities will open up for you
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The first thing we would do is go to kanki and get us some Japanese food while they cook it in front of us .
Next we would go get our favorite drinks and talk and catch up the rest of the night .
In the morning we would fix breakfast and
Head to the outlets to do some shopping getting all the good deals.
Next we would go freshen up and get our makeup done & head to the berry bomb selfie spot and take pictures
Afterwards we would go to Dave and busters for a good time and arcade games.
The next day we would go to another city and ride go karts at the track ( that’s are favorite thing to do ) afterwards we would go to the karaoke spot to eat and enjoy our night
The last day we would spend it catching up literally talking and enjoying watching movies . Ordering crazy crab , making videos and tik toks . Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to thank my family the ones that do support my journey for being there for me in every aspect from good criticism to correct criticism as well . I would also like to give a special shout out to my manager |Good YouTube friend Alexis Highley she’s a great influencer very humble and wants to see you succeed And you really need someone like that in your life who brings the best out of you .
