Today we’d like to introduce you to Juliana Uribbe Aguiar.
Hi Juliana, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
I started my journey on social media when I was 14, with a couple YouTube videos, with no intentions of actually making a career out of that. Social media was always a big part of my life, and I was always motivated to create content online.
It wasn’t until I was 16 that I started taking my Instagram a bit more seriously and grew my account to 10k followers.
When I was 18, I started working as a full-time streamer, and that only made me more involved with social media and interested in making that my full-time job.
When I was 19, I started posting more on my TikTok account, and it wasn’t until I was 20 that I truly focused on my TikTok and Instagram.
By the end of 2021, I started to post constantly and saw a huge growth on both accounts.
Today I have a following of over 350K on TikTok, over 75K on Instagram, and over 55K on Spotify.
This just makes me beyond happy to be able to share with other people my love for movies, music, tv shows and have them enjoy the content that I create for them.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been a smooth road. I think a lot of people underestimate the work of a content creator because it looks easy from the outside. Physically it’s not draining at all, but it can be mentally. The ups and downs of social media used to affect me a lot and still do at sometimes. Social media is not extremely consistent, and most of the times, you’ll spend hours creating content that might not perform as well as you thought it would. That makes you question your talent if you really should be doing what you are doing, and it ends up making you lose your motivation.
When that happens, is a really tough spot to get out because you tend to see so many flaws on your work, and you think about giving up, but the key is to push through the downs, so you can get to the point where you post without thinking as much about the outcome.
Thanks – so, what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I would say I am most known for my Spotify Playlists; that’s what actually started making my account grow the most. It’s also the work that I am most proud of because music was always a huge part of my life, and being able to curate playlists that people enjoy and listen to on a daily basis is very surreal to me.
Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I would love to thank all of my followers that have been supporting me through this journey; without them nothing would be possible. It’s because of them that I am able to fully invest my time to create what I love.
