Welcome to my blog! Thanks for wanting to get to know me better! First off, my name is Sonali Prabhu. I am 21 years old, and I am currently a junior majoring in Radio/ Television Broadcast at The University of Central Florida.

I started blogging in early March of 2015. Even though there are still many things to learn about the “blogging world”, I’m ready to take them on! I began to make a name for myself when I created my first Youtube video in 2013. I have always had a passion for fashion and makeup. However, after receiving many comments about my outfits and beauty routine on my Instagram and Twitter– I decided to help others through Youtube videos! I soon realized that everyone has different platforms they prefer, either videos or textual content, so I decided to start blogging about what I love!

“When I first connected with Sonali, I was immediately impressed by her social media presence and following, particularly on YouTube. I enlisted her to help me launch my YouTube channel in 2014, and since then, she has helped me produce three YouTube videos. During our work together, Sonali was a take charge director and brought a fun energy to the shoot. Sonali is wise beyond her years and, in my opinion, represents the future of social media. She’s innovative, committed to her brand, and confident yet humble.”
