Hello everyone we had the chance to interview Vanessa influencer and teen motivator. It’s very uncommen to hear of a teen motivator that is why Vanessa is so special. Make sure you go look at some of her work and follow her on instagram. She currently has 13.6k followers on instagram.
How old are you?
I’m 13 years old
Your a motivational speaker where do you get your inspiration to speak?
I watch a lot of TedX Talks as they help me see how speakers structure their speeches and I usually have main topics to talk from so I don’t really need to do much research on what to talk about: my main topics are Confidence and Inspiration. I look up to many incredible speakers such as Les Brown, Trent Shelton, Prince Ea, Preston Smiles, Eric Thomas etc.
Your an influencer as well how’s that going for you?
In the future, I would like to become an actress, perhaps star in a Netflix series, I would also like to become a TV presenter.
What are you plans for the future?
One of my dreams for the future is to be a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, her show is the one show I would dream of being on as she uses her high status, not to benefit herself but to give back and help others, and I truly admire that about Ellen. One of my biggest dreams is to create a hotel for the homeless so they have a warm place to sleep, somewhere to bathe and eat, because I believe everyone should be treated equally.
Do you have any advice for teens in your field?
The advice I would give to teens in my field is to not allow criticism from yourself and others stop you from doing what you love. Two people could be getting criticism and doubt from lots of people, it just depends on how they let that impact them. My other advice would be to work hard and never give up because you never knew if they day you give up you were right around the corner to an outstanding opportunity that could change your life!
