Dasia: Tell me something about yourself ?
Sayeh: I’m a 21 year old fashionista from Canada. Ever since I was 5 years old, I knew this was what I wanted to do. Inspire, create, and teach people my skills. My goal is to have my own clothing line and inspire people daily to chase their dreams.
Dasia: How did you get started blogging?
Sayeh: I started with my Youtube channel, then I just expanded from there creating my fashion Instagram and makeup Instagram.
Dasia: How long have you been blogging ?
Sayeh: I started my Youtube channel a little over 6 years ago. I started it as a hobby in middle school, didn’t have the best equipment, but I didn’t care. I enjoyed creating videos, editing and filming. It really wasn’t about me reaching a certain amount to start making money. I just wanted to inspire people.
Dasia: What do you like most about fashion ?
Sayeh: How unique it can be. You can rock the same outfit as the person beside you, but it’s the vibe and energy you give while you wear the outfit. You have to be able to step outside of your comfort zone and explore different styles.
Dasia: What do people think you do for a living?
Sayeh: People think exactly what it is. I create videos for myself and for sponsors I have. I am a brand promotor, so I constantly am sent clothing items to test out and photograph in.
Dasia: I’ve been following you for a long time and I’m obessed with your style , how would you describe your style ?
Sayeh: Thank you! I would describe my style as versatile. I believe I can wear anything and it’ll still be a dope outfit. That all comes from confidence and not worrying about what people think. If people feel that vibe off of you, they’ll start following the style that you rock.
Dasia: Your shoe game is A1! What are your favorite type of sneakers ? Heels?
Sayeh: My favourite pair of sneakers are definitely any one of the Jordan 11’s. Those sneakers are the ones I have the most of and I keep getting more! My favourite heels are anything that is a high lace up.
Dasia: What are some of your favorite fashion brands ?
Sayeh: LOVE Alexander wang. Balenciaga, Givenchy, Fashion nova.
Dasia: You also have a Youtube Channel, what motivated you to start a channel?
