With so many up-and-coming influencers and social media models in the world today, it can be hard to make a name for yourself online. Building a presence on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and other social media outlets is nowhere near as simple as it used to be, and it has become a very competitive and saturated market. This challenge, however, did not stop Cristina Fox from pursuing a career in the digital space and making her dreams come true.
Today, Cristina is a professional influencer and online entrepreneur with more than 2 million Instagram followers, with millions more spread across her social network. However, she didn’t always know that this was the career path she wanted to follow. Cristina was born and raised in the United Kingdom, where she eventually became highly educated and earned several degrees during her time in college. After graduating, Cristina went on to work in the corporate world. She was working full-time for big blue-chip companies throughout London and the city’s surrounding areas- a career many strive to achieve. Cristina has always been extremely professional, driven, and organized, and these qualities are what helped her become so successful today.
Although Cristina’s time in the corporate world gave her many essential tools that she continues to implement in order to run a successful online business, she also faced immense challenges during this time. She had to deal with sexism and stereotyping on a regular basis at work, which obviously created a toxic work environment for her. She often had to overcome hurdles that other employees in her same position did not have to, and most of the time it was simply because of her appearance.
Eventually, she decided that if people were going to judge her based on her appearance, she might as well make a business out of it. Cristina decided to leave her impressive corporate job and pursue a career as a full-time entrepreneur. From then on, Cristina dedicated herself to building a successful business and platform through social media as her own boss. Of course, building a brand and accumulating such a massive fan-base took much time, but she has continued to stay motivated through every step of the process, and has always believed that consistency is key.
Cristina has managed to stay focused on her goals and remained constant in her work ethic and drive. Her proudest accomplishment and greatest success to date is building such an impressive following on Instagram starting from nothing. She truly built her own brand and business from the ground up, and her brand only continues to grow stronger each day.
Now that Cristina is in a successful position, she wants to help other individuals with similar interests and goals accomplish what she did. She seeks to empower women to follow in her footsteps of creating a successful business at home and doing it on their own terms. One of her priorities in the future is to motivate and coach others that would like to achieve her level of success on social media that allows them to freely express themselves online. Giving back and motivating others is very important to Cristina, and she feels that if she can help change the lives of others, she has accomplished her biggest goal.
Overall, Cristina wants to be known as someone who is true to herself. She wants people to recognize that she doesn’t let society’s stereotypes and unrealistic expectations define who she is, and that has played a significant role in why she has become the widely recognized star she is today.
