If you’re someone who spends a great deal of time on YouTube, odds are you’ve come across one of upcoming star Rafael Piquete’s videos. Piquete is a rapidly rising star on both Instagram and YouTube, accumulating a staggering 300,000 followers on Instagram and over 80,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel in a very short period of time. He is becoming widely known for his creative vlogs which primarily feature a heavy amount of travel videos combined with food reviews featuring the local cuisine of whatever respective country he’s vlogging from.
At just 27 years old, Piquete has become a social media star; however, many of his fans aren’t aware that he has only been involved in the social media industry for a relatively short period of time. Before his impressive run as a content creator, Piquete spent his days as a businessman in Portugal, although he always had the desire to travel around the world for a living. Through his occupation as a content creator, Piquete is now able to travel to wondrous locations all around the globe while experiencing hundreds of cultures and thousands of signature dishes from a plethora of regions.
When it comes to his career as a social media entertainer, Piquete took a significant risk when first getting started. At the beginning of 2020 amidst the rise of the Covid-19 pandemic, Piquete predicted an opportunity to build multiple fast-growing online platforms. Once entertainment facilities, stores, and restaurants began to close down throughout the world, he knew many people would be spending a substantially increased amount of time on the internet. He quickly invested the majority of his money into pursuing his aspirations, and it’s safe to say that things have worked out even better than he could have imagined.
Aside from the unique travel experiences he is now able to enjoy on a regular basis, Piquete has also managed to create an impressive income strictly from his social media platforms; however, to Piquete, it’s not about the money. He mentioned that he’s extremely passionate about entertaining others and the fact that he’s able to entertain and educate others all while making an impressive living is a dream-come-true for Piquete. “I’m passionate about creating content that can inspire others to chase their dreams and experience new things,” Piquete stated.
Now quickly approaching online celebrity status, Rafael Piquete shows no signs of slowing down. He has many big plans for 2021, and he mentioned that he can’t wait to share what he has in store with his fans. Perhaps the most exciting part about Piquete’s impressive social media journey is that he’s achieved more in under a year than most aspiring content creators can only dream to achieve in a lifetime. We would like to wish Piquete all the best in his future endeavors, and we can’t wait to see what he does next.
