Instagram Influencer Spotlight On: Nessrine Manachou @Sophia_menacho

1) Tell us a little about yourself. What are you doing now and where do you come from?

I am from Tunisia and I live in Poland. I am a political science student on one side and a passionate artist on the other side. I write, play theater and love artistic photography.

2) What are your topics of interest? What do you post on Instagram the most?

I post about my trips, my moods or if I find a beautiful thing worth sharing l do it on the spot.

3) How did your Instagram name come about?

My name is Nessrine but Sophia is kind of my alter ego and my writing name. Still I named my blog and insta Nessiness because friends call me Ness and it turns that the "nessiness" of a thing is what makes it it! And that is the perfect definition of who I am.

4) What are some apps you use to edit your photos? Share with us your photo-editing routine!

Oh I have a full folder called instagram! Generally I use VSCO to crop and adjust , then Snapseed for the correction tool, then Photoshop to adjust color and sharpness, then back again to snapseed for extra sharpness or contrast if needed, if it’s a pic of me I use YouCam to fix minor things like oily skin or lipstick (i don’t like the other parts of the app it looks so fake) and finally if I am happy with the result I take it to VSCO to apply the same customized filter that I use to have an even insta feed. Generally that’s it sometimes I need more editing and sometimes I just apply the filter and post.

5) Any Instagrammers whom you really like? Which Instagrammer inspires you the most?

Emily sears, I started following her when she had few followers no brands just a pretty girl and now she got the blue tick ! She is really the proof that with hard worki ng and enough patience we can achieve what we dream of!

6) If there’s one thing your fellow Instagrammers just gotta try now, what’s it gonna be?

Oh that depends.. if it’s an app definetely Fabulos its a life changing experience!
For a book Fi Çi Pi trilogy also life changing ! If it’s a cosmetic product I’d say the BobbyBrown mineral liquide foundation it is just perfecf for a natural healthy look and for coverance the BB cream from garnier and the L’Oreal true match I am a redhead with freckles I tried almost everything and these two were the best for a flawless skin (better than high end brands even at least for me). So yeah these are this month’s discoveries:)

7) What’s your favorite part about being an influencer?

Doing what I love testing and experimenting new things being as creative as I can be and not being chained on a desk in a 20 floors corpo typing on a gray screen from 9 to 5!!!

8) What are some of your top tips to brands for running campaigns? How do you maintain authenticity?

I recentely gathered my courage to take the first steps as an influencer but from my personal experience on how I raised my niche of followers I think that its very important to be in touch with people to make them feel that each comment you respond to is written for that unique person like if they were all close friends.

9) What would your advice be on the importance of quality and original content?

The most important thing I learned is that it is better not to post than posting something average. So if I definitely need to post something I would try many times and see which one is the best I would write a caption over and over edit it check it for plagiarism theen if I am happy with it I would post it.

10) What do you like best about partnering with brands?

Well I still don’t know but I am very excited I think it is a serious responsibility to be a little ambassador of a brand and promote it the best way you cam
