Lets take some social media tips from Antje Utgaard as she catches up with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You are an extremely popular social media influencer with over 1 Million followers on Instagram. Walk us through your incredible journey and tell us how it all began?
Ms. Antje Utgaard:
It all began when I was a junior in college at the University of Minnesota. It was game day and so I was all decked out in my Gopher attire so I was taking my fair share of selfies and a friend of mine screenshotted one of them and sent it in a big account that posts “Hot college girls” on game days. Without me knowing they had done this, I looked down at my phone and my notifications were going crazy. I gained my first thousand followers that day and from there on out I just started taking more pictures of myself and people started to really like them so I got more into modeling from there and the rest is history!
