I remember what a revelation Instagram Stories was for me. For the first time I heard women, I had been following for years, speak. It was like a transition from silent films to talkies. I saw my Instagram crushes outside the carefully staged photos they presented on my phone. I got a non-Instagram peek into their lives.
That's kind of how I felt interviewing Clarice Chian (@Brigadeirochoc). I had followed her on Instagram, along with 100,000 others for so long. I knew she lived in Adelaide and went to Fashion Week and created content for brands but I didn't really know who she was.
It was great to catch up with her and find out about her life growing up on three continents: Brazil, the UK and Australia. Her three careers, first in science, then law and now content creation. And also how she started in the Vogue Forums (important Australian women's internet history!).
