Welcome to 2021!

2020 was the year of self-reflection and 2021 is the year for self-growth. 

My name is Kassandra Vargas and I am the founder of The Klassay Influencer. Throughout 2020, I found myself going through dozens of DMS asking how I started my influencer journey and how I created an authentic brand. I wanted to share all my tips but it was difficult to keep up with every single DM while being a college blogger. I formed the idea to build a site where I can share how I started and tips on how to keep going. 

I started my blog during my first semester of college which also happened to be my "junior year" of high school. I loved creating content and speaking to a camera but didn't know what to do with my passion. I didn't really know anyone in the industry yet or even how I could work with brands. I also felt like an outsider being a plus-size woman in the fashion blogger niche because it is predominately skinny. Shoving all my insecurities and fears aside, I finally launched my blog Stay Klassay in 2017.

In the last three years, I've been able to create a brand, grow a following, work with major brands, connect with other influencers, and most importantly, find my "why". I understand how starting out can be intimidating and discouraging especially if you don't have all the resources. That's why I am so happy to introduce The Klassay Influencer.

The Klassay Influencer will be an online guide where influencers can connect and learn about the influencer industry all in one place. The industry isn't a "one-size fits all" like other industries so what worked for me may not work for you. That's why I would love it if we can have these discussions on blog and social media posts.

I am so excited about the launch of The Klassay Influencer and can't wait to connect with all of you.
