360 was able to catch up with  influencer Fletcher and get her feedback on her rise in the social media fabric. Boasting an impressive Instagram following of almost six million, categorizing Fletcher solely as a social media influencer may indeed downplay her impact. In her candid conversation with Bilal and Millings, she chronicled her journey from local popularity in Chicago to nationwide recognition. She emphasized,

“I’m relatable. On Instagram, there are countless individuals with millions of followers, but not all possess genuine influence.” She stated matter-of-factly, “Be authentic, but true influence is a realm inhabited by only a select few, and I am one of them.”

n the dynamic world of celebrity culture, a group of influential individuals has emerged, transcending the boundaries of fame and recognition. These black celebrity influencers are not only shaping trends but also using their platforms to inspire change and celebrate diversity. Their reach extends far beyond red carpets and movie screens, impacting society, business, and activism.

When it comes to advice, the influencer had this to say,

“Don’t stop. And if it feels uncomfortable, keep doing it because everything seems a little uncomfortable. And when you feel like it’s uncomfortable, you be like, I don’t want to do it. Just keep going. If it’s something that you truly desire to do, I think that you should keep pushing through it because it was uncomfortable for me at first,” she said. “It’s like if you want to be an Internet personality, but if you can’t take comments well, like people talking shit about you that is uncomfortable now, you shouldn’t do it because people do be doing crazy stuff behind bad comments because everybody can’t take that. But you got to just have really tough skin and just go through a tunnel vision. Like, don’t pay attention to nothing on the outside.”
