  • I am Kylene, a woman with big dreams and a strong desire to succeed. I am a sophomore medical biology student and a content creator. I currently work part-time in an office, model for photoshoots, and my hobbies include art, makeup, poetry, graphic design, and photography. From 5th grade until high school, I was a photojournalist for our campus's newspaper. I was also a member of the poetry club in senior high school, and my skills in digital arts grew as I looked at different types of digital art, which inspired me to learn it. My content is usually about beauty, skincare, and personal care. I love sharing my thoughts about the products I use to inform and recommend to my family, friends and audiences good quality products.

  • In all honesty, it is very difficult to balance everything within my personal life, academics, career and being a content creator. As a pre-med student, I prioritize my studies. Studying in college is exhausting sometimes because of the tons of schoolwork and activities. Time management and motivation are the keys to balancing everything. I have a tracker on my things to-do so I don’t miss my deadlines for schoolwork and work. I remind myself to trust the process of everything I am working hard on because I know it will soon be worth it. Thinking of the outcome of my hard work inspires me to never give up and keep going.

  • In the digital world, there are numerous opportunities to learn and grasp as you progress further into your explorations. Venturing on the internet is the fastest way to communicate with people around the world and search for information through browsing different social media networks. We have to be careful about what we post online, but we can make use of this digital world to socialize and learn many things.
