NYGal had the great opportunity to interview this NYC sweetheart and introduce her to you. Here is everything you need to know about Anna Maxwell.
1. How did you start your online career
It was a natural evolution, photography and fashion has always been my passion. With the advent of instagram and online culture I thought, This is it! I found an outlet to share my creative side and keep life interesting.
2. What does it mean to be an influencer for you?
Being an influencer is to be my own little ecosystem for people who want to be inspired, to build up the courage to make their own dreams come true, and sometimes just to come to a virtual reality where they can get their dose of inspiration.
3. What’s the one word to describe you?
4 What you love the most about you?
Optimism. I don’t know whether I was born with it, raised to be, or cultivated it — probably all three — but I refuse to accept anything other than the idea that the day after tomorrow will be better than today. It’s a great source of motivation to work hard and do my best, and it’s made my life a lot more fun in countless ways.
5. What’s your favourite thing/place in New York?
What do I love about New York City? Every single day offers something different and new to discover. There’s always something to do. I like to experiment with different restaurants, different kind of food and neighborhoods.
6. What’s the one thing you’d change about New York?
One thing I don’t like about New York is when vast stretches sidewalks of the Manhattan become garbage dumps after business hours and big black bags of trash on the sidewalk in anticipation of the next morning’s pickup. I’m sure there some solutions to the problem of public trash.
7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I hope that in ten years, wherever I am and whoever I’m with, I’m happy. Life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, but I’ll do my best to make the right choices and be the best sister, daughter, professional and friend I can possibly be, because that’s what is truly important. I want to look back and say that I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished. I want to look back and say I’d do it all over again.
8. What’s your life motto?
You can dream it you can achieve it!
9. If you could have one superpower what would it be?
To fly. I would love to see the world how the birds do.
10. What’s the one thing you wish you knew sooner?
Introverts don’t hate social interaction. I’m an introvert, but no one would guess that. I need time to recharge on occasion, but that doesn’t mean extroverted characteristics are outside of my realm.
11.What’s the most important advice you could give to starting up creators?
Do. Do. DO! Don’t hold back, and when the day feels like the worst and hardest day ever, push, push, push!!
