Life & Work with Lucho Diaz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lucho Diaz.

Alright, thank you for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
This is a long story, but basically, when I was at school in my country, I was with my group of friends talking and having fun, and one of my friends tells me: DARE! whoever reaches 1,000 followers first on Instagram wins! And I was like, mmm okay? This was in 2015 and I only had Instagram and did not upload any type of content. But I accepted the challenge and along the way I got motivated and I liked the idea of ​​having followers and all that.

Until then, in 2018, the Musical.ly app came out, an app that today is known as TikTok, and I started making videos, at that time the viral videos were about transitions. Then as time went on, I started taking it more seriously and started getting involved in other apps like Instagram and YouTube.

To get to where I am now, I had to go through a lot, haters, losing one of my accounts with the most followers, doing everything by myself, not having much support, etc. But I feel that everything happens for a reason and here I am, trying to create content, building this social network, and doing what I like the most! Working with brands, interacting, and sharing with my followers.

I am very happy and grateful for where I am now, without my followers I would be nothing, I would not be where I am now. I still don’t believe everything I’ve achieved far, but if I could, YOU CAN TOO! Let no one tell you otherwise.
Go, fight and achieve your dreams.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Well in life there will always be challenges or things that we must face, and especially in the world of social media, IT IS NOT EASY! In the beginning, it was difficult because I received a lot of hate and bad comments, which came from friends, followers, unknown people, etc.

It was difficult because those are comments that really affect you in some way, but now I don’t pay much attention to those bad comments anymore. You must be smart and take advantage of bad comments to give yourself that courage and continue doing what you like!

Also at the beginning, I did not have the support of family or friends, they saw it as something basic and laughed when I said that I wanted to do this, start in the world of social media, start a youtube channel, etc. I also had to learn how to edit videos, photos, and all the content that I filmed by myself. Everything I know so far I have learned by myself and the internet. If you want to do something, go for it and teach yourself!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I have been in different jobs, such as fast food, service, cleaning, etc. I am currently looking for another job, but one of my goals is to be a full-time influencer. I have my first job which is my main income source and also I consider my second job to be an influencer because during the day I create and edit content for my platforms and also for brands. Which in the meantime is like a part-time job.

In my social networks, I am known more for my dances, especially on TikTok, because it is my main account with more followers. But currently, my content is Fashion, Beauty, Dance, and Lifestyle.

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Many of my followers already know me, but for those who don’t know me very well yet, here are 5 things about me:

1. I am from Chile. (many people think I’m from another country except Chile haha)
2. I am 21 years old. (August 13 is my birthday)
3. I love to dance with all my heart, I dance because I love it, but I also dance when I’m upset or to clear my head.
4. I love makeup, art, SFX, social, etc.
5. One of my dreams is to be an influencer and work with famous brands.

I invite you to follow me on my social platforms so you can keep getting to know me!
