StarCentral Magazine recently caught up with Mandy to discuss her journey in the industry and here’s what went down:
Can you tell us more about yourself? How did you get started in the industry?
My name is Mandy, and I started very young. I was three when I started dancing. I was five years old when I made my first song. It was super fun, and I loved it, so I continued to make more music, and I haven’t stopped since 2017.
How did you develop an interest in becoming an influencer and what drove you to pursue that passion on social media?
Social Media is a great tool to put your work out there, so I did, and the first time I went viral, I realized how powerful it is when people love your work. So, I decided to keep going no matter what. I consider myself a young Artist and will love the people who follow me grow with me.
What do you like most about being an influencer?
I love that people saw me when I was a toddler, and I’m still young. I’m only nine, but the people who follow me know me and have grown with me. I appreciate the love, and knowing I have inspired my fans motivates me to do what I love.
In what way has social media changed your life?
Social media has changed my life because my fans and followers can get an inside look at who I really am. I’m not trying to be someone else; you can see that in my daily posts. It has positively impacted my career, and I’m very grateful for the real people who follow my dream with me. The best part is when my followers share how they are achieving their dreams and goals with me. I love my fans!
What are some of the difficulties of being in the industry?
You have to be consistent. Sometimes staying consistent can be challenging because we are tired in real life or have other responsibilities like homework or chores. Keeping with posting can feel extra hard, but I need to connect with my fans and followers as often as possible.
I look forward to seeing their comments and sharing their dreams with them just as much as they come to my page to see what I am up to. It makes the challenges feel easier when I remember them.
How does your thought process differ when creating content for Instagram versus content for Facebook?
I post my daily photos, experiences, and videos on Instagram, and on Facebook, I focus more on news and photos. Also, when I post on Instagram, it automatically appears on Facebook, so it’s a great and very convenient tool.
If someone is going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?
“Well, I’m only nine years old and already pursuing my dream of becoming an actress. I would love to portray my life in a movie when I grow older, as I have been recording all my experiences and adventures.”
What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.
I will keep making music, having fun, being a kid, and being a role model for many kids that want to pursue their dreams. Nothing is impossible, and everything is about your love for what you do, so never stop and keep going. I will keep singing, dancing, and acting, and now I started to Cheer, so it will surely be an adventure.
