Roxy’s Corner

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO SINCE YOU MATRICULATED?
Since I matriculated in 2016, I have moved across the country to Cape Town to chase my dreams. I’m currently in my second of the year studying Digital Marketing and doing a whole lot of work and projects on the side. For the past year and a half, I’ve grown exponentially as a content creator and it has got me to places and given me opportunities I never thought I would be blessed enough to get. I am still doing YouTube however it is not as consistent as I would like because of all the crazy work and experiences happening around me. I have been fortunate enough to work as a social media manager at an agency, create content for huge brands and companies and also work with and explore with some of the biggest creators both nationally and internationally of whom I used to call my Idols. I am currently working on building my very own agency/ platform which should take flight in the next month or so. The goal is still to continue doing YouTube and hopefully, to one day make it my job.

IN YOUR LAST INTERVIEW YOU MENTIONED A FEW OF YOUR INSPIRATIONS, WHO DO YOU LOOK TO FOR INSPIRATION NOW?
My current inspirations are Cole Bennett, Adam Horwitz, Brandon Amato, Dan Mace, Gary Vee, Casey Neistat, Yes Theory, Adam 22, PAQ, Lil Skies, Juice Wrld, XXXtentacion & Jaden Smith.

BEING IN CAPE TOWN, WHO HAS SUPPORTED YOU MOST?
My closest friends support me a lot, those that I see on a day to day basis and those who live miles away. My Family might not understand a lot of what I do, but I’m sure they will always have my back no matter where I am in the world. I’d say the majority of my support comes from kids all around the globe that I’ve never even met but always send me the most heartwarming and kind messages about my work and my content. The internet has allowed me to connect with these kids and be there to make content that inspires them and that is important to me because I was and still very much am like them, I also have idols and people that keep me going because of their content.

ARE YOUR GOALS STILL THE SAME WHEN IT COMES TO VLOGGING ETC OR HAVE YOUR PLANS/GOALS CHANGED?
My goals have always been to do whatever makes me happy, and a bonus is to get paid whilst doing it. Whether that’s through YouTube or entrepreneurship. My goal is also to continue making content that is impactful and brings out a feeling or an emotion, I want the people who watch my videos to know exactly what I am going through, good or bad. As long as my energy and my message can live through my content forever, that is the goal.
