Tina Sadri is trying to change the way people view and use social media. Too often, social media makes people feel bad about themselves. Tina Sadri is trying to change that by showing her whole authentic self, rather than one facet as many people do on social media.
Tina Sadri, Digital Creator or Instagram influencer, wears many hats. Sadri is a psychotherapist (also known as a talk therapist) who loves fashion. After having her second child, she took to social media after she experienced postpartum depression. She wanted to share her experience with depression because she developed a new, more appreciative worldview after having experienced it.
Tina Sadri became empathetic and less judgemental after experiencing postpartum. She found herself much more understanding of her clients in therapy. She wanted to advocate for mental health, and she wanted to show the world how she was coping and living a healthy life. She now has over 300 thousand followers on Instagram and for good reason.
When people scroll through social media– most accounts portray a one-sided view of the person. You’re either in fashion or a psychotherapist but never both on one page. Tina Sadri is changing all of that with her Instagram. Sadri wants to portray balance on her Instagram account. “It’s all about balance….don’t tend to one thing and then compromise [on] the other things.” Sadri said.
Sadri’s Instagram has many headlines. For example, she has the words lifestyle, fashion, and mental health lined up together. She often hears that she should choose one and go with that on her Instagram, but she disagrees. “I can’t take one. I am all of it together.” Sadri said. Sadri doesn’t need to– she’s gaining followers and success on Instagram because she is showing her true, whole self.
Tina Sadri portrays her love for fashion on her Instagram account, her love for mental health, and her daily life too. You’ll see her modeling her favorite outfits and on Tuesdays, you’ll find her talk sessions about various mental health topics. Sadri even advertises her line of luxury eyewear called Sadri Sunglams. Of course, you’ll see her everyday life and photos of her family too because these are all the things that make up who Tina Sadri is.
She is being her true self on Instagram and with the number of followers she has, you know it’s working. People relate to and appreciate authenticity. Sadri cares so much about how people experience social media that she even wrote a book about it: Obsession: Freeing Yourself from Social Media Disorder. Tina Sadri is an entrepreneur like no other–she’s making a living out of living.
