Who is Tabitha- in 5 words
Creative, Free-Spirited, Simple, Multifaceted, Ambitious.
What do you do?
I am currently a full-time video producer and part-time content creator. I make YouTube videos about travel, culture, and entrepreneurship.
The life of a digital creator must be pretty interesting, what parts of your job have you found boring?
Yes, it’s pretty interesting because you get to turn simple concepts into entertaining, educational, and/or inspiring content. The only boring part is thinking about editing, but once I start selecting music, it’s not boring at all – however it is time-consuming!
What was your drive?
I simply wanted to document my life experiences. Later on, I realized people were listening and learning from me. That’s when I also realized I was an influencer. The more videos I created, the more confident I became on camera and with public speaking. Creating videos became something that not only helped my subscribers but grew me as a person. Plus I enjoyed it and still do!
Did you ever feel scared diving into this career?
Yes, I did because I didn’t know how to make it a career. Now I realize the opportunities everything I have been building as a digital creator has afforded me, all because I just kept going.
Where do you see in 3 years?
I see myself being a successful full-time entrepreneur and content creator, producing higher-quality videos. I want to empower women around the world and those in disadvantaged communities back home in Northern Uganda, Africa. Hopefully, I will also be making more music as that is a passion of mine I have never fully explored.
What would you say to your younger self?
Believe in yourself more. No one has the power to put you down or deter you from your dreams. The power is within you and your uniqueness so own it with confidence!
