Tejj Aduu is a Winnipeg fashion blogger and Instagrammer! She’ll be speaking about her passion and her journey with blogging at our next Boss Babe Pyjama Party on Feb | 22 |20, but we wanted to ask her a few questions beforehand to get to know the woman behind the blog.
I’ve been a fashion blogger for 2 years! @tejjtheblogger will be 2 on The 14th of February.
I wanted to share my style with the world and show what African prints can do. I also wanted to spread love and positive vibes through fashion, my personality and style.
Honestly, I just started! Lol. I did speak to a friend who was a photographer. We photographed a Valentine’s Day series and I posted them on Instagram. I learn a lot through social media (especially Instagram). Still learning!
Success is achieving and winning in whatever I set my goals to. Doesn’t matter how small. It’s peace and happiness.
I’m very proud of building a strong following of people who not only follow me, but who trust my opinion enough to buy from the companies I collaborate with.
You can keep pushing and moving but always remember that you come first!
Nobody can do it like you. People follow you for a reason so why doubt yourself?
As much as style is a personal thing, it’s very fluid so I’ve had to learn to be flexible with it
It’s super important to me. I’m a black woman. I want my kids to grow up with role models who look like them. It’s important because of the kind of legacy and image we want black children to grow up with… showing them they are beautiful and stylish in their brown/black skin and nappy hair.
You can hardly find adequate representation of black women or women of colour among bloggers in mainstream media. Also, black businesses are always judged and limited to stereotypes.
Oh yes! I plan to shoot more style videos and vlogs this year. A little insight to my personal life.
If you do not have a team, make sure you have a great support system you trust. Also, your needs come first so don’t let the internet rush you.
To hear more from Tejj Aduu, join us at our next Winnipeg Boss Babe Pyjama Party on Saturday February 22.
