Kenyan lifestyle influencer Sharon Ciru popularly known as Shorn Arwa is among the most successful and followed personalities in the country’s social media scene. The Nigeria-based sensation found success in the world of content creation away from her home country.

Initially based in the UK, the popular social media influencer is living her best life while inspiring thousands of other content creators around the world.

Chasing Dreams

Shorn Arwa relocated to the United Kingdom in pursuit of success in her craft. Her decision to move was driven by the desire to find a place where her craft would be appreciated and rewarded.

In Kenya, Shorn faced challenges when her unique content couldn’t fit into predefined categories, locking her out of multiple opportunities. However, the decision to relocate was not without its emotional challenges.

Leaving behind her family, friends, and familiar surroundings was a bittersweet experience for Shorn. She reminisces about her farewell party, where loved ones gathered to bid her farewell and offer their support.

Fortunately for her, things took a significant turn in the UK as her creativity found recognition and financial success.

At the time, she took to social media to thank God for guiding her life and opening doors she once viewed as shut.

“Today I got my first couple of millions as a content creator, and on such days I thank God I relocated to a place where my craft is acknowledged and appreciated.” She wrote on her Instagram Post.

“I remember one time asking someone “big” in Kenya for some gig and he said “we can`t categorize you anywhere, we do not know what to do with your type of content. I felt so sad for real but today that type of content that couldn’t be categorized back home gave me a couple of millions,” she said.

Although Shorn cherishes her memories of Kenya, she remains determined to explore the opportunities that exist beyond her homeland.

Role Model

Shorn Arwa is keen on inspiring upcoming social media content creators and influencers to be resilient in their pursuit for career success.

“Why am I posting this? I want to encourage that little content creator who isn`t able to fit in the aesthetics of “cool girl”
