IELTS Speaking Topics – Describe a person you follow on social media

Q – Describe a person you follow on social media.

You should say:

  • Who is he/she?
  • When did you start following him/her?
  • Explain how you feel about him/her?

A – Today, social media is used by everyone and when trying to build relationships in any sector, social media is the first place that comes to mind, whether it be with teenagers on TikTok, small companies on Instagram and Facebook, or with professionals on LinkedIn. I am quite active on it and have been following Marina Mogilko on Instagram for a long time now. She is an entrepreneur, a YouTuber with 2 million subscribers, and an Instagram influencer as well. Her English learning channel on YouTube is her main focus. In fact, this is how I discovered her. I once searched YouTube for a lesson on accent reduction. Then I stumbled upon one of her videos and found it really interesting. Later, I discovered her personal Instagram account and began following her.

Because she wrote extensively about her life in America, her business techniques, and how she gained her insights, her posts turned out to be much more engaging than her videos. Since I started following her a year ago, I can say that I am blown away by the information she posts. I still find her thoughts intriguing, therefore I never miss a post from her, especially when she talks about events she has attended.

Some of her opinions are completely at odds with mine, thus they forced me to reframe my stance on some issues. For instance, she mentioned in one of her most recent postings that she began to say more “Nos” than “Yeses.” Despite the fact that many people believe we should take advantage of each chance we are given, she claimed that doing this helped her focus on what is truly important to her. She also had the unique idea that you shouldn’t strive to make improvements in more than two areas of your life at once. Otherwise, you run the risk of delving into a variety of issues for the entire day. You’ll only end up feeling miserable and having a negative self as a result. She also documents her successes in writing, and that’s motivating. She always begins a post with, “This is how I accomplished something, for instance, established my own business at the age of 21, and how you can too.”

All in all, I believe that anyone who is looking to follow an influencer who will inspire them with every post should follow Marina Mogilko. After all, we all would love to have some insights from a person who often looks at the brighter side of things.
