“My digital identity is very close to who I am offline, but it is not a literal representation. I believe this approach will give me longevity and a sense of control.”

“Many male content writers tend to include women in roles they are most familiar with — the girlfriend, the wife, the maid or the mother. I’m not keen on playing them all the time.”

“I’m constantly experimenting with my voice and content, so what I say and do on social media will be a response to my ongoing dialogue with my audiences online.”
