On Digital Influencers

We know the story: robots will continue taking most of our jobs. Telemarketers, truck drivers, lawyers… we seem to be all in this together (High School Musical references apart).

But what if you’re a social media influencer?

Meet Miquela Sousa: This American-Brazilian model is 19 years old and lives in LA. She’s an Instagram influencer who stands for LGTB rights and campaigns for youth justice.

Lil Miquela boasts 1.4 million Instagram followers. She recently collaborated with luxury brand Prada and appears in Vogue magazine. She just released her latest song together with artist Baauer.

And she doesn’t exist.

My top 10 TED talks · Oct 17

Here’s one for those who feel curious to know about how the world works, and how to improve it.

TED is a non-profit organization  through which experts from different disciplines communicate their ideas, findings or discoveries.

Below you’ll find a list of my 10 favourite TED talks. They cover different topics, although you can find quite a lot of thoughts related to topics such as futurism, inovation, marketing, psychology or advertising.

I hope I contribute to your curiosity in any way through this article, and I hope you find some of these TED talks as inspiring as I do. 💡 Don’t hesitate to contact me with any reccomendation 💡.

Life in a 400 inhabitants village

Yes, we do have wifi here.

Born and raised in a village of 400 people. Exciting, right?

My hometown, Cerdà, is located 50 km away from Valencia city. I am the only 21-year-old inhabitant ✌🏼.

After coming back from living abroad, and before heading to Valencia for some more months now, I stay in my “Mediterranean hometown” for a time period. And I find life in its purest state.

Summer 2017: Social inclusive entrepreneurship in Amsterdam

After finishing an academic year abroad in Amsterdam, Clara couldn’t help it and stayed for the summer.

In the process of trying to find some meaningful project where I could contribute to, I found DELITELABS, a social inclusive pre-startup school where participants can develop their ideas and transform them into businesses.

Social media

Adapting facebook to my preferences

Over the past few weeks, I have been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information on my facebook feed. Posts were displayed in such a way that made me find no value on the app anymore.

Instead of keeping myself informed and learning about topics I am interested in, I found myself scrolling through posts I found “less meaningful” every now and then.

Social engineering

The century of the self

My favourite documentary ever.

This 4-part broadcast shows how the whole “manipulation of the masses” concept was created and developed by Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, and applied to different fields such as business or politics.

This post will be focused on my impressions and thoughts on the documentary.
