As a society, Social Media has become our new best friend. We practically do everything with it. We use it to stay in contact with family and friends, to connect with our favourite celebrities and to share snippets of our lives.
And, although it is a virtual and somewhat illusory world, what we see on our timelines often has a huge impact on our beliefs, interests, and ideas.
Remember the the popular saying of
“Birds of the same feather flock together”
Well as much as it applies in real life, this logic is also relevant when it comes to social media. If you follow someone online and remain engaged in their content for a long period of time, they will influence you in some way or another. Especially as you are growing into a young intelligent and beautiful woman, it is crucial that you follow the right people who share positive and interesting content that will aid you in becoming the best version of yourself.
Below are a few suggestions of accounts that I believe will make your timeline even better!
@thefemalehustlers empower girls and women with their relatable and inspirational quotes which encourage a confident and positive mindset. This account is great as their quotes sometimes act as gentle reminders of how you should live your life!
@soyouwantotalkabout is dedicated to educating people on various political and social issues around the world. From body positivity to capitalism to reducing your carbon footprint, they will explain each topic in a way which is easy to understand. When it comes to social media, there is nothing better than using it as a tool to educate yourself!
@nytnetwork is a platform which focuses on having important discussions about the world of Entrepreneurship from a female perspective. Whilst you may not have a business or brand yet, there are certainly some important lessons you can learn and put into practice such as how to overcome imposter syndrome.
@guardianweekend is linked to the Guardian newspaper but it is ten times more colourful and fun. They do interviews with celebrities, TikTok stars, entrepreneurs, and share information on contemporary issues in an entertaining way. So even if you are not a big fan of reading online newspapers, you will enjoy reading this one!
If you are not following @thinkherambition, all I have to say is that you are missing out. They promote various opportunities related to a variety of careers so there is always something for you to get involved in. You will also be one of the first to hear about upcoming workshops which are focused on personal, academic and career development.
Remember you are influenced by who you follow, so try to ensure that you are following people who will impact you positively!
