We sat down with NEON Influencer Taya Christian so you could get to know a little bit more about her!
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Friendly. Driven. Humble.
How did you become a social media influencer/start your journey?
I initially started my page as a hobby on accident. I was documenting my journey to medical school and in the lab where I did scientific research, and began sharing my story and creating a community of like-minded women. It took off very fast and has been an incredible journey thus far!
If you weren’t an influencer, what career would you be in do you think?
I am actually a medical student by day and an influencer by night! My plan is to become a doctor and use my platform as a way to inspire women to be their best, healthiest versions of themselves!
If you could have a superpower for the day, what would it be?
Time travel. Absolutely 100% time travel. How fun would it be to travel back to the 70s?!
What TV series are you obsessed with right now?
Okay, this is a little embarrassing but.. I’ve always been a Bachelor junkie. I don’t get to watch as many fun shows as I would like because of my schedule, but when I do it’s the Bachelor 🙂
What/who inspires you?
Overcoming obstacles is what inspires me. I come from very humble beginnings and I never forget my roots. I am also inspired by everyday women being unapologetically themselves!
What are the three things you can’t live without?
My dogs, the gym, and of course my phone (shocker, huh?)
What’s your current favorite piece of clothing that you own?
I am a sucker for a matching activewear set. I am currently obsessed with my Gymshark and Boohoo sets!
If you could raid one woman’s closet who would it be?
Hailey Bieber. She is the perfect balance of trendy and sultry.
What’s the best thing that happened this year?
This year has been very good to me so far. I made the decision to invest in myself and get healthy, and I have had the chance to work with numerous incredible brands. I am so grateful and excited to see what the rest of the year has in store.
Favourite products/brands that you are loving at the moment?
Where do I even begin? Tarte and MILK dominate my makeup bag, absolutely loving those! And I also can’t stop shopping at ASOS and Zara!
