IG - 148K

She is extremely hilarious and a versatile comedian. When asked about how digital platforms such as Instagram have aided to her growth she says, “I've been a content creator for the last 4 years. Before appearing and making videos, I was a writer. Social media has definitely helped with me getting noticed more, watched more and helping me get recognised more and more. But along with the reach comes pressure to stay relevant (which requires consistency) and I'm still grappling with that. Like any creator, I often get overwhelmed by the pressures of "being on" all the time, I experience exhaustion and burn-out, I experience jealousy for my peers and also an overarching sense of self-doubt and a feeling of not being "good enough". I've learnt that one can never be at the top of their game constantly, that is just humanly impossible, creates needless pressure on mental health and honestly, I don't even aspire to be "at the top". I just want to do good work and be responsible in my content and make those who watch me online, forget about their stress in life, even if it is merely for a few minutes.”

I've been seeing a lot of backlash against International Women's Day today, and I understand it. The commercialisation makes it seem a bit like a joke, and you want to say "Hey I don't want your stupid discount, thanks." Because what we want it real change. I get it. But don't fall into the trap of putting down Women's Day for this reason, or for the reason that you might be a woman of privilege and have lost sight of the greater good a day like this can do. I promise you, somewhere there's a little girl who's abused at home each night who sees this day and thinks she's worth something, that she has sisters and can fight back. Somewhere there's a young man who questions why we need a Women's Day and realises it's because we're fighting for something. When you put this day down, you take away the victories we have made so far - things like being able to vote, to drive, to work, to not work, to use birth control, to wear bikinis and burkhas both if we want. And worse, you take away a chance at future victories. Use this day to reach out to the women in your life, to show solidarity, to donate to a women's charity. When was the last time you did those things anyway? Maybe we do need a day after all Big hugs to all my ladies, and to all the men who stand by us ❤️❤️❤️‍♀️‍♀️❤️ Happy International Women's Day. ❤️❤️❤️
