“My main focus has shifted to blogging (with Dollar Store Diva). I feel like with blogging, I'm growing more important skills such as writing, graphics, content calendars and creation, and networking.” -Nikki Vergakes
Nikki Vergakes, more known as the Dollar Store Diva, is a leader on self-ran blogs. Student at Salem State University. Vergakes balances blogging and school like many of the millennials seen at the #LikeaGirl Interview Series. I was able to get a word with Vergakes to share some of her knowledge of blogging.
Miss Millennia Magazine: Tell me a Little About Yourself!
Nikki Vergakes: I'm a Boston-based blogger studying Strategic Communications at Salem State University. I like to call my interest in my future career path a side effect of my only child-ness. I had friends growing up, but my best friend was the computer. I had an interest in “graphics” on Paint, “video-making” on the Digital Blue and YouTube, and “content creation” on the early Blogger. My passions include traveling, food, running, music, and writing. I'd love to either work in an agency or in the Public Health field some day.
