Luck, they say, is when opportunity meets preparation. So when I reflect on Sophia Diamond’s continued rise to stardom, I can’t help but marvel at how ‘lucky’ she has been.

But social media isn’t without its ills though. The anonymity of the internet has proven to be an issue, though that’s the talk for another day.
With the growing list of individuals that have become a success through social media, one can affirm Sophia Diamond is in good company.
