Today all the aspects of femininity have been gathered in one woman, along with her modesty and kind heart. The more you talk to her, the more you feel warmth and familiarity. Freesia have met up with Souna Ghassan; the Lebanese fashion blogger, the icon of beauty and the most googled fashion blogger in the Middle East. In an interview with Souna, we discovered her beauty addiction, her role model and the secret behind her beauty.
What is the secret behind social media fame, and how did you start?
Although I’ve made a great success at being a blogger, I didn’t have it in mind to be a blogger at first, or even to have followers. I just started posting my pictures while I was out or even just at home. Then I noticed that I started gaining a lot of fans, so I continued on with this path.
How has fame affected you?
In a positive way. I learn something new every day. When I meet up with people who express their love for my work, it makes me so happy. For me, being a famous person means to always be welcoming to those who try to talk to me or want to take photos with me.
What is your relationship like with your fans?
Anybody would love having fans who appreciate their work. I wouldn’t have achieved anything without them. They are my main support system. As for the negative side, sometimes there are harsh comments. I am a positive person though, and I don’t care about any negative comments.
How do you deal with the negative comments, and do you ever block people?
Sometimes I reply to negative comments, and I block people who surpass the limits. I don’t accept any curse words. However, comments like: “I don’t like how you look today.” are okay for me. I accept that. One time I uploaded a photo and they said: “this color doesn’t suit you.” I told them that I just wanted to try something new. I accept criticism.
People say that you are Kim Kardashian the Middle East, what do you think of this?
I do love her. Kim is a super star, and very famous worldwide and on social media. She is famous for her beauty and her body shape. I like curvy women in general, so I wouldn’t say that I imitate her specifically.
Have you thought of doing reality television shows like Kim K?
Yes, my future plan is to make reality shows. Shooting will be in three locations: Cairo, Dubai and Beirut. Shots of my real life and my daily routine will be taken. Hopefully it’s going to be a success.
