My project, CINDERELLA! – MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE, was selected as a finalist in the 9th Annual Shorty Awards for BEAUTY.

Every year the Shorty Awards honor the best work across social media’s vast and growing landscape. Now in its ninth year, the Shorty Awards continues to recognize the most innovative, creative, and culturally relevant brands, organizations, agencies and influencers on social media.

Pipped to the post by Aveda! I was delighted to be the youngest of the six finalists in the Beauty Industry category and attended the event to support my fellow influencers and content creators.

I use social media platforms, including Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, as a way to truly express myself. I work hard to provide my followers with new, fun and engaging ways to interact across our digital community. With nearly 42,000 following me, my global network continues to grow each day.

Finalists were selected by the Real Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences, whose members include leaders across the advertising, media, entertainment and technology industries. The group includes CMO of GE, Linda Boff, Apple Co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak, CMO of Patrón Spirits International AG Lee Applbaum, Instagram Co-Founder Mike Krieger, author, activist and TV host, Janet Mock, and more.

The awards ceremony was held on Sunday, April 23rd in New York City.
