Sandra Lok Instructor

I’m a nomadic freelancer and travel blogger.

With more than 10 years of traveling experience and over 5k followers, I know how to make Instagram work for you.

I started Instagram when it just launched. I didn’t know how it all worked, but through the years I got quite the hang of it. Nowadays I use Instagram on a daily base and for me, it is a good source for marketing my business, travel inspiration, news and sometimes even collaborations with brands. Getting featured with your best travel photo can open doors that you have never imagined before!

For this course, I collected a lot of useful information and mixed it up with my personal tips and experiences. The final product is an inspiring and fun course which will provide you all the knowledge that you need to become a true Instagram Star.

I love sharing my knowledge about this amazing platform. So let me help you to get started.
