ALL HAIL THE SELFIE QUEEN!
“Inspiring people starts with one person: yourself. If you have the spark of inspiration, you can inspire others. That’s the key.”
We are currently living in the age of the selfie. Last few years ago, the word was officially gone insane and added to the dictionary. We even got variations like “belfie”, “welfie”, “wefie” so on and so forth – we’ll let you Google on those! To those who don’t know or not sure what selfie is, selfie means picture of yourself, usually taken by yourself. A photograph that one has typically taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media. So it’s about time you get to know the Youngest Selfie Queen in Malaysia!
Dahlia Rizal is a 15 years old girl that has some kind of magical Instagram power. Almost every photo she posts makes it to the “popular” page, and her photos garner as many as 5,000 to 20,000 likes and above, not to mention, hundreds of comments. The validity of each and every engagement certainly may not be authentic, but the numbers are still incredibly impressive. After noticing that she’s gaining more and more followers by posting her selfies, she keeps posting her selfies twice or more each and every day on Instagram ever since.

Though selfies get a negative response for leaning toward the narcissistic end of the confidence spectrum, they may actually be a good thing. Therefore, making her own Instagram account as a big platform after she has realized that people started to follow her because of her selfies, she has made a decision which is to inspire people and her over than 130,000 followers to make them feel more confident about themselves, encourage them to see the best not only their inside but the outside as well and unleash that beauty when they are good and ready by considering the green light to snap, filter, and post – it may not be everyone’s best line of defense when it comes to a confidence boost. But, hey, a flattering photo never hurts!
Despite Dahlia Rizal’s strong self-assurance and confidence, when she posts a photo of herself on Instagram, she also secretly hopes to get multiple encouraging and flattering comments, likes, and shares. And for each one she receives, her confidence goes up one notch higher. “Every like and positive comment I get does help raise my confidence,” Dahlia Rizal said.
