Happy Back-to-School & Happy Autumn! As we head back to school, we put on our thinking hats and look forward to seeing our friends we’ve missed all summer. This month’s PicCollager is not only a power user, but she is also one of the friendliest and most active users trying to make the community a better place. Leila101 is constantly looking for a way for users to be heard, get known, and find opportunities for others to learn.
If you haven’t seen her video already, she created this to educate people in female gender equality and to remind everyone to reach for their dreams: smarturl.it/leila101
(She even left us an awesome shout out! Thanks Leila)
Here are some of Leila101’s inspirational collages:
To learn more about her, we set up this interview to show everyone who she really is!
Priscilla: Hi Leila! Thanks again for the amazing video and shout out. I hope all the user’s watching the video are definitely inspired to reach for their dreams. What was the idea behind it? What made you want to create the video for World Literacy Day?
Leila101: At first, I was just going to share the video with my friends, family, etc. But then, I realized that the message of the video was something I wanted to share with every girl! Just because you’re a girl doesn’t mean you can’t. In fact, it’s because you’re a girl that you CAN! At first I thought, “No way PicCollage is gonna sponsor this!” But I felt to go for it! I swear I almost fainted when you said yes!
Priscilla: Haha we’re so glad to have sponsored this video for you! How did you hear of PicCollage in the first place?
Leila101: I had just gotten my new Samsung! I had never been on social media before, and I was looking for a great social media app to make friends! PicCollage was perfect for me! I LOVE collaging and almost ANYTHING creative really, and it didn’t take long for me to meet my bestie of two years, Victoria! (iswifty)
Priscilla: Congrats on your new phone! And how long have you been a PicCollager now?
Leila101: I have been on PicCollage for two years now! Within that time I have gotten over 62.2k followers. I call them inspirations 🙂 To be honest, I can’t imagine life without every single one of them! Each and every one of them means so much to me!
Priscilla: That’s the sweetest! How has PicCollage impacted your life style?
Leila101: There is no way to really put into words how PicCollage has impacted me! I’ve laughed! I’ve cried! I’ve learned! I’ve grown! I’ve met so many inspiring people! I honestly wouldn’t trade my experience here for ANYTHING! It’s truly helped make me a better person, and taught me how to express myself in ways I never knew were possible!
Priscilla: Amazing, just like you. PicCollage is growing to make your experience and everyone’s better. Where do you see PicCollage in the future, and where do you see yourself in it?
Leila101: Well, I’ll say it like this, Gold never stays buried for long! I feel like it’s only a matter of time before you see PicCollage right there next to Facebook and Twitter! I just hope to still be a major part of it when it does! You know, I have SO MANY dreams I hope to reach with PicCollage, and I’m already starting to live some of them! Later this month I plan to release my very first sticker pack, “Simply Autumn”, on PicCollage! With the help of PicCollage’s in house sticker designer, Victoria Horng.
Priscilla: Awww, you’ll definitely always be a part of PicCollage! Okay, so now aside of PicCollage, tell me more about yourself!
Leila101: Well to put it simply, I’m just a city girl! Trying to help, inspire, and encourage everyone I get the chance to! I have a lot of dreams I hope to make plans, and use everyday as an opportunity to make a difference! I recently started a YouTube show! (SimplyLeila) and I hope everyone loves it! I’m a junior marketer, graphic designer, artist, photo editor, photographer, and uplifter! 🙂 And I’m always hoping to make new friends!
Priscilla: You definitely are making a difference! Well, it looks like that’s the last bit of my questions, do you have any final words you’d like to say? Any shout outs?
Leila101: I just wanna say how much everyone’s support means to me! My journey would not have been the same without every single one of you! I can’t tell you how much it means to me! I personally want to thank Vicki! (iswifty) for being an inspiration to me and for being my bestie! My goal is to get our account (iLollipop) on the popular page this year! Kinda like a surprise thank you for all of her support and encouragement! And of course! Thank you PicCollage for everything! Including your amazing app! I hope to continue to be a part of it, and help it grow! Thank you!
And there you have it! Leila101.
