For those who don't know about #WHITheFuture, It's a contest created by @HeyMyNameIsYasmin. She'll pick 5 people and give advice to them to reach their full potential (which can be 10,000 followers).

Read the original article by Yasmin here:

So, this is my entry for #WHITheFuture

1. About My WeHeartIt Journey-

"Even the greatest was once a beginner. Don't be afraid to take that first step."

I started WeHeartIt six months ago, which is 5th May 2017. So it's obvious that I don't have much idea about how things work here. I just keep hearting and uploading pictures and as a result, I reached 1K followers in 3 months (21 July) and currently have 1.7K followers. It might sound little to others, but 1.7K means the world to me and I'm thankful for each and every person.

Some people make the world special just by being on it.

Most of you guys must be wondering whether I've joined WHI years ago or have other accounts?! No, this is my first ever and only account in WHI.

2. Why am I interested in #WHITheFuture?

While reading thoroughly to the @Yasmin's #WhiTheFuture article, there is something which I found interesting. She said that she'd work with 5 users for 3 months to help them reach their maximum potential.

I believe that time is the most powerful thing in a person's life. And I also believe that helping and supporting each other makes a community better place. A person like her who is kind, famous and talented is willing to help others for 3 months and 3 months is a lot of time for anyone. What can be more beautiful than a person is helping others to reach their maximum potential and that too inspire a community? It's awesome!

So obviously I want to be a part of this and being tutored by Yasmin will be an honor and I'd love to work with her.

3. Why am I eligible?

To be honest, it's not my part to say whether I'm eligible or not. I think there are 3 common things which make people success or stand out from the rest and those are- Passion, Creativity, and Dedication. And I think I have got those qualities.

Passion

Passion is doing what we love and my love for WHI is I can't describe in words. For me, WHI is an emotion. Whether I'm hearting/uploading or not, just being here and surfing WHI or just simply looking into my collections or own profile makes my day.

Being brave is not the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear and finding a way through it.

English isn't my first language and I ain't fluent in speaking either. There are so many things I want to write and express my self through articles but I find trouble in doing that. There are so many things cross my mind while I'm writing. Sometimes I feel like what if I'd make mistakes? (obviously, I don't want to embarrass myself in such big platform like WHI) Would they still read my articles? ...and the list goes on. I'm not afraid of expressing my self, it's just the language barrier. My love and passion for WHI have given me immense strength and motivation to push myself and do better. Guess what? I've enrolled myself in a Bachelor's Degree Course and that's too in English as the main subject, and I made this decision after joining WHI (and I'm proud of it). I'd rather work hard to achieve my goals than just simply sitting idle and complaining about my negative qualities. If this doesn't explain my passion than I don't know what else will do?

Anyways, there's an emotional story behind where I discover and why I love WHI so much. Maybe, I'll write about that in future.

Creativity

Everyone has a story to tell, a lesson to teach, and wisdom to share... Life is a beautiful masterpiece bound together by your experiences. Open up and share your story; become an inspiration to others. You make a difference because you matter. You were created with a purpose. Live your life with intention, go out there and make a difference by being the difference.
— Melanie Koulouris

About creativity, everyone can be creative on WHI if they want to be by simply adding pictures to their collections or writing an article. I'd like to suggest my fellow hearters here to not to be shy to express yourself. Because you never know who needs your light. You can also make an impact in other's life by inspiring and motivate them.

If you look into my account, then you'll found out that I've made 59 collections so far. I may seem desperate (to get followers) to some people but as I've told before that I ain't afraid to express my self. You'll find out almost every genre of photographs in my collections, such as 'fashion, food, travel, black and white, quotes, nature etc'. And really those collections are a reflection of myself. Besides, I write articles too. Though I haven't written many but, I'm willing to write more articles in future.

Dedication

Sometimes it's hard to just keep going but dedication is moving forward, without giving up no matter what.

I'll be lying If I'd say I'm active on WHI for 24/7. Obviously, I have got a life outside the internet (in fact, everyone does have).The main thing is keeping a balance between both virtual and real life. Always I find a way to be active on WHI despite my hectic schedule. By means of being active doesn't mean I've to post a series of pictures every now and then. Sometimes I visit each channel and looks up to what's trending (both Images and Articles). And have hearted 11K+ posts in just 6 months. It's my way to show support to my fellow heartes (even though I don't know any of them). If we don't support each other then who else will do?

However, I want to make clear that I'm not greedy for being famous and get 10K instantly. We all know it takes a lot of efforts, hard work, and patience. Each and every follower's matter to me. 999+1= 1000 and that 1 person can keep you away from reaching 1K goals. We all have felt that adrenaline rush at least for once. I believe that when a person follows us, they follow us for a reason and that might be our creativity, unique personality or just to get inspired by us. And I want to inspire and motivate or do something for them(including myself). Followers and their appreciation give us/anybody immense motivation and inspiration to do better. And I also need some motivation. Definitely, working with a larger group of followers will be a dream come true. That's why I'm participating #WHITheFuture contest.

Wishing all you guys good luck!
Keep smiling ❤
