Today we’d like to introduce you to Alyssa Morales.
Alyssa, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started Instagram just for fun, posting pictures of things that I loved and places I loved to go. Once I became a mother, my children slowly took over my Instagram and I started connecting with moms all over the world. Things really started to take off when Ellen DeGeneres shared my little girl’s picture on her IG page. People were inspired by my little family and that was one of the best feelings ever. I started sharing where I shop for my kids, kid-friendly places we go, and our favorite products that we love to use. I share little pieces of my life/motherhood through the little squares on Instagram. This mom community we have through social media is amazing! I have met so many amazing people along the way!
Has it been a smooth road?
No, it has not been smooth at all. I’m a mom of three and, of course, my children come first. Juggling motherhood and social media is most definitely a struggle. Although it may seem like my little family has it all together, we do not and I love sharing that part of motherhood as well, the struggles, the messiness, and the chaos. My advice to others would be to never give up on something you love doing. If you love it, go for it!
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I’m an IG mom/influencer. I share pieces of my life through social media, the good the bad and the ugly hoping to inspire someone along the way. I love connecting with moms from all over and sharing our struggles and accomplishments with each other.
Do you have a lesson or advice you’d like to share with young women just starting out?
The most important piece of advice is to never give up. If you love doing something, then, always go for it!
