Have you ever considered what your life might be like if your passion becomes your dream job? It’s like a dream come true, and Jerlyn D’Silva is getting to live her dream. A digital influencer and food blogger who has made a career out of her enthusiasm for food.
She began her career as a food blogger in 2015 before transitioning to a lifestyle blogger. She began as a writer for an online meal delivery and search engine service before launching her own site, where she covered restaurants, spas, and fashion companies.
Her initial decision was not blogging. Jerlyn wanted to be a pastry chef when she was in school, thus she began baking at the age of 15. And then life happened and she took up marketing but eventually opted to work for a radio station, owing to her creative abilities. With a penchant for writing, the former radio personality went on to work as a senior content writer, honing her craft.
“Seby Singh, a blogger from New York, is the person who pushed me ahead to share my eating experiences with the world,” the blogger writes. She further added, “ People began to engage with my content, and I developed a liking towards it. Later, I discovered that it is a viable source of income and is serious business. I started brushing up my skills, bought myself a good camera, and registered a domain name, and rest is history. I’m glad I crossed paths with Seby when I did and I owe her this one”.
Jerlyn D’silva has received numerous awards for her work as a result of her tireless hard work in the industry. She has been featured in Femina India Magazine as one of the top female writers in India. And she also bagged her the position of India’s Top Five Women Writers at the Orange Flower Awards. She is a five-time nominee at the prestigious FBAI awards. She was also featured as one of the best food bloggers in Pune by the Pune Times.
She now has a following of 27.4K people with whom she shares food, fashion, lifestyle, fitness, and celebrity interviews. She doesn’t only talk about food on her page; she talks about anything from fine dining to street-side stalls. There’s something for everyone, from dazzling fashion to eco-friendly apparel and more.
Jerlyn enjoys the fact that she can eat the best food in the world for a living, as she is a foodie at heart. Her passion for travelling and discovering new places has led to some incredible experiences in her life. She hasn’t made any plans for the future yet. Uncertainty has suited her best, and she intends to continue living her life in that manner.
She is a great example of how perseverance and hard work can lead to success. Go on follow your passion and make your passion your profession and there’s not going to be a single day which will be dull.
