Chinae Alexander is the kind of person you just want to be friends with. She’s vulnerable about the process of improving herself and figuring shit out, but she owns who she is with confidence. By showing the imperfect side of herself, it allows the people who follow her to see that they, too, can do the work AND be confident. Now, that’s an inspiring thing we don’t often see in the sometimes too-perfect-to-be-real world of Instagram influencers. She believes in showing up as the taste menu of yourself instead of the full ten-course meal — giving people enough of the real you to satisfy them and keep them full. In this thoughtful conversation, she dives into showing up as yourself online, finding a therapist who doesn’t freak you out, processing your emotions out loud, and handling anxiety in whatever way you can.
