The Student Self-Isolation Guide: Instagram Influencers to Follow

During isolation, many of us are seeing an increase in our online activity to stay in the loop with our social circle. With so much more spare time on your hands, we bet your bad habit of endless scrolling on Instagram has become more frequent then you’d like to admit, right? We’re all guilty of doing it just to pass the time. It starts with watching one video on the explore page and then next thing you know, it’s 3 am and you’re watching your 4th pointless tutorial on how to replant a bonsai tree, even though you’ve no intention of owning one!
Many of us can fall into this trap. So, why not make sure your feed is filled with content you actually find useful, so you don’t feel as guilty? That’s why we have created a Student Self-Isolation Guide on popular Instagram Influencers to follow who post the content you love!

3. @florencegiven
Crowned Cosmopolitan’s influencer of the year in 2019, Florence’s core focus is to promote female confidence.

Through Q&As, playlists, carefree dancing, daily vlogs and most importantly through her inspirational life quotes, she will definitely open your eyes to look at the world differently. She is the epitome of #GURLPOWER.
