Roommate of the Month: December 2021

Even a global pandemic couldn’t stop aspiring content creators from perfecting their craft while balancing their careers! Once in a while, we get to meet a remarkable Roommate with a passion for life and everything that comes with it.

Our December Roommate of the Month, Olga Marie Nadora, is a 31-year-old Accountant and small business owner who loves to create lifestyle and product content. We couldn’t help but admire how passionate she is about every photo and video she puts out for her audience! Despite being fairly new to the world of video creation and product reviews, she has already had collaborations with brands and continues to make quality content for her audience.


1. Tell us about you and your vlog.

Hola Roommates! I’m Olga, an Accountant, and a small business owner. My page is all about the things I love - fashion, travel, lifestyle, reviews, and a little bit of my personal life.

2. When did you start your vlog and what inspired you to create one?

I have been posting travel and lifestyle photos on my Instagram page since 2014. I had always dreamt of creating content that would help and inspire my friends and followers, but I had no time since I was busy juggling between my work and my personal life back then. When the pandemic came and we were in a community quarantine, we were stuck at home and couldn’t travel. I tried looking for various outlets to release my stress, I tried opening a small online business, tried watching and making TikTok videos, and then later tried a streaming app called Kumu. While watching some TikTok videos, I stumbled upon some product review clips and thought that I can also share my experience and reviews to help my fellow consumers. I started making review content last year. Currently, most of my content is about my shopping hauls and reviews about the various products I used (purchased/gifted). I am happy that I started doing this now.

3. Who are the vloggers that you look up to?

The vloggers/bloggers that I have looked up to since I was in college are Kryz Uy, Laureen Uy, and Camille Co.

4. Top 3 pieces of advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start up a social media platform?

1. It's never too late to start! If you want to become a content creator, do it now.

2. Keep making quality content, keep on learning, and don’t get easily discouraged. Everyone started from zero followers and zero engagement.

3. Connect with your co-creators and your audience.

5. How are you able to balance your personal life, professional career, and being a content creator?

I was able to balance these three because I love what I do, and I think time management is key. Setting priorities and scheduling the activities that I will do for a day or a week really helps me to make the best use of my time.


1. What's your inspiration for every social media and vlog post?

My inspiration in every content that I make is my audience. I see to it that the content I post is a piece of honest information that will help and inspire my audience.

2. What makes your page or vlog different from other creators? What is your goal and objective with your platform/s?

Whenever I have a collaboration with the brands, I ensure that the content I create resonates with the brand’s vision. I don’t just make content; I actually make time to create quality content. I also make sure that I have my own personal voice. My goal is to create engaging content and inspire my audience.

3. How do you make sure that you stick to your original goal as your platforms grow?

I plan and schedule my content. I also make sure that I always give my honest review about the products I post.

4. What did you learn or is continuously learning as you venture deeper in the digital world?

As a content creator, I need to create content by quality not just by quantity. Being a good content creator takes time, effort, and discipline.
