“I talked about it with my boyfriend, if this had happened to me five years ago when I started on Instagram, it would have hit me very hard because people are cruel, but with the emotional maturity that I have, it does not affect me,” he told El Universal .
The influencer confirmed that she will arrive in Mexico with her boyfriend and that her idea was to visit Núñez’s restaurant and enjoy her food in exchange for promotion on her social networks.
“A job is to provide a service and that I receive a remuneration, either financially, or that they give me a payment in kind. For me, clearly, this is work. Although I understand that the issue is under discussion by some people, “said the Colombian content creator.
The 27-year-old says that It has already made advertising alliances with other Mexican brands in Cancun and Mexico City.
For the influencer, messages like the one that reached Núñez It’s like sending a resume.
“I understand, it’s not the way I would have expressed myself, but that’s him as a person. At this moment I feel good because, for me, I did not do anything wrong nor am I apologizing for what I did, just in case I offended him at some point, ”said the influencer.
