The process was not easy and took time, but Amaya now presents herself as a confident and self-aware young woman. a young woman named “Amaya K.”
Amaya K’s message of hope, discovering the beauty and blessings of life, self-love, never giving up, and finding and living your purpose is one she loves to spread! Amaya K, the once insecure stutterer has blossomed and she’s only just begun!
Hi Amaya K! Let’s go! What is important for people to know about you?
The most important thing people know about me is that I’m not perfect. That’s the first thing that came to mind because I feel like social media gives the illusion that everyone “got it all figured out” and you’re behind in life if you are not where the majority of people your age are. So, I felt it was necessary to tell anyone watching my content that I’m not perfect and I’m taking life one day at a time.
The best way to live life. As you have undergone your own personal transformation and embarked on a journey to help others do the same, what have you learned about yourself? Is there anything you wish you had known before you started?
One thing I’ve learned is “it’s not about me”. Obviously, my content concerns me, but my overall mission does not concern me. It’s about having an impact on others. I wish I had known this sooner as it would have helped me not to be upset by opinions or lack thereof.
You learned a vital lesson early on. Good for you. Tell us about your “global mission”.
My mission is to have an impact on others. The impact I want to have is to encourage and uplift people in a world that benefits and wants people to hate themselves. I want people to KNOW and BELIEVE that THEY ARE BLESSED AND BEAUTIFUL despite what you tell yourself or what others want you to believe about yourself. It’s a matter of perspective. Even in the midst of your struggle; you are always blessed and beautiful. The beauty I speak of is not physical, it is internal.
I also started my own YouTube channel in 2020 during the pandemic to help myself and others struggling with self-love and confidence. The purpose of my channel was and still is to show my journey in the most authentic way possible and to help others by showing my own journey.
It seems you are on the right track for whatever life throws at you. When you look into Amaya K’s crystal ball, what do you do see?
I see myself and my channel impacting others globally. I’m currently in my first year of nursing school and can’t wait to see where this journey will take me. I am also a podcaster. People can check out my podcast, “aMaYa’s taKe”. Of course, there’s my YouTube channel and they can follow me on social media!
Stay blessed! Stay beautiful!
