Tell us a little bit about yourself. What does a day look like in your life?
I just focus on working on my stuff. Typically, my day is waking up, making content, work. I am also in school for business management. Dr. Kenny had this scholarship opportunity on Clapper and I got it, so there is a bunch of Clapper creators going to school. So that’s my day: school, work, content.
We love your daily readings. How did you get into tarot and spirituality?
I started a little over a year ago. I got into witchery and spirituality. I am genuinely an empathic person and somebody in my group designed tarot cards and decided to make me a costume tarot deck to start practicing my readings. I just dove right into it, I loved it. It’s just a tool for healing, I’ve been through a lot of trauma in my life and the messages that come out of these readings are generally very therapeutic.
We noticed you have a lot of crystals? Which one is your favorite one?
My favorite is Amethyst. It connects with your chakras and removes blockages that you may have. I have probably like six of those. Also, the rose quart because it helps to promote self-love and healing. It guided me towards inner love and acceptance. I definitely like to mentor people. The best thing to do is to make sure that you know what you are doing and that your intentions are good.
We were checking out your website, and we were so impressed with your content and the layout. We wanted to ask you: In the empowerment tab, could you explain to us in simple terms what “Chaotic serendipity ”is?
That is a concept I came up with in the midst of my healing. It was the most intense part of my healing journey. There is a theory about the things that seem chaotic, but are not actually chaotic. There is a patter when you really look at it. It’s Chaos theory and serendipity, which means a happy accident. So, my theory is that going through this healing journey everything seems to be chaotic, but by the time you get out of it, you see that everything happened for a reason.
You have a variety of things you sell on your crafty shop, with the new Clapper Shop update, are you considering selling them through Clapper?
Oh my goodness! Yes. I already started listing things on the Clapper shop, I listed potions in there. I plan on definitely utilizing that feature. It’s a wonderful feature.
How did your journey as a creator begin? What was the first account you ever made?
Like the typical older millennial, I started on MySpace. I actually was the type of person to resist technology and social media platforms. I was one of the last waves to transition to Facebook. But, Musicall.y, I jumped on that quick. Probably because music and dance were a big part of me. I transitioned to TikTok, but during the pandemic, the app was flooded with a bunch of people and it changed the app completely.
So, when did you transition to Clapper?
I was having censorship problems and some people were telling me to go to Clapper. It has been the funnest ride ever since. I have made the best friends here. I am on other social media apps, but Clapper and TikTok are the main ones that I have invested my time and my resources.
What do you enjoy most about Clapper? In what ways do you feel like Clapper needs improvement?
My favorite feature, that differentiate you from TikTok, is the group chats. Being able to build your community and structure it within the app is the best feature you could add.
As far as fixes go, my big thing is not losing videos. When I finish recording the video and the app crashes or I lose a draft. As a content creator, that time and energy can’t be taken back. I can’t re-do a reading. It’s not the same message.
Being such a successful creator on Clapper, what advice would you give new users that want to be successful on Clapper?
Just make videos. If you are just starting out it doesn’t matter. I didn’t care, I just posted videos. I just posted anything that I enjoyed. I stuck to what people really reacted to. Be yourself, make videos, make clapbacks, comment replies, all of them. There is no shame, you’ll develop your community in a second and be flying in no time.
