Entrepreneur & Game-Changing Social Media Influencer; Nella Rose shoots her FIRST Magazine cover for GUAP 20.
Nella Rose has been courageous in her field and has moved from strength to strength, despite the industries push back on Black influencers. This is why she was the perfect choice for the GUAP 20, Renaissance cover.
Nella Rose first came to our attention when she graced our YouTube screens, with her unique conversational content that surrounded the relatable black experience when it came to university, relationships and growing up with black/African parents. With smiles all around and a genuine rapport with her on-screen guests, that were usually her friends, Nella Rose captured the hearts of many. Making her one of the fastest-growing Youtube channels by a Black British YouTuber.
Like a true creative, Nella has let her work grow with her. After graduating from university, Nella re-branded her YouTube channel to be one that focused on her lifestyle, fashion, and personal advice. A format that is admittedly saturated in the competitive world of YouTube and social media influencing. But, Nella rose to the challenge and has not only become one of the leading players of the game but has changed it.
This year alone, she made headlines when she won Pretty Little Thing’s Youtuber of The Year Award. As well as the popular release, of her streetwear brand “Faces” that reportedly sold out in just a few hours. With an ability to continuously push herself, Nella Rose represents the unapologetic self-made excellence of Black British youth. We celebrate her today, with GUAP 20.
