TGIF, Churpers! 🎉✌🏼 Time for a good rest after busting your brains out during the work and school week 🙌🏼
Talking about school, it’s time to meet our Featured Alpha of the Month, @cheyennechesney! Currently a student taking her IGSCE and a part-time model, Cheyenne works hard to juggle all her responsibilities while having fun at the same time. We had a chat with her to find out how she juggles work and modelling, her perception on social media and a defining trait that people love her for 😉
Cheyenne's feed follows a consistent theme 📸
Well, when I take my photos I try to follow the same colour palate. Since my theme is white I try to take pictures with a white-ish background. If I had a darker feed I would take photos with a darker background. I also edit all my photos using the same filter and settings so that the photos all match.
Juggling school & modelling 👩🏻🎓👱🏼♀️
So far it's been a little tough, but I make sure I have at least one or two hours to study every day. Be it before I sleep or in the morning when I wake up. During photo shoots sometimes, there are a few models on set so we take turns or they take a lot of time to set up. So I bring my study books to study any time I can squeeze it in.
Perspective on social media 👀
I started social media in secondary 1. My friends encouraged me to join the different social media platforms when I first entered secondary school.
Since secondary 1 my perception of social media has changed a lot. For starters, as I used social media more I started receiving hate. The first time I received hate, I was so upset by it. I thought it was the end of the world, that someone online didn't like me. As my following began to grow, the number of haters did as well. They would comment that I'm "overrated" or "boring" or "ugly" but I started not to care.
At some point, I realised that their opinions didn't matter to me. Everyone has haters, no matter what you do, someone isn't going to like it. So, at the end of the day the only person whose opinion of you matters is yourself. Just keep your head up and ignore those who wish to bring you down.
One word to describe Cheyenne ☝🏼
Positive. No matter the situation, I try to look on the bright side. I try to tell myself, looking back in the future, would I rather have a happy, positive childhood or a sad, emo one. I like to think that any rough time I'm going through will be over before I know it and that I'll be happy again and stronger than before.
Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to have a chat with us, Cheyenne! We are truly excited for what lies ahead of you ✨🙆🏼
Hope you enjoyed getting to know @cheyennechesney on a more personal level, because we sure did.
For more of her daily musings, stay tuned to her Dayre and social media platforms!😊 For now, head on over to bit.ly/FFcheyennechesney as she shares with us her recent Gold Coast trip, how she started her modelling career and more! 😻
