Top Five Social Media Influencers to Follow for Academic Inspiration

Being a visual person means that you aim to surround yourself with things that move you and remind you of the reason you're doing what you're doing. Luckily for us, we live in the age of digital documentation. The great thing about digital documentation is that it has the power to move not only the creator but the followers as well. One person can click on an Instagram story and see how another person is cleaning out their closet, and suddenly the viewer is inspired to do the same. That's the power behind digital documentation, just by seeing someone do something you are suddenly motivated to try it yourself. That is also the main reason that social media influencers have such a big following! People want to be moved, they want to feel like they are not the only person who has to do a certain task, and then they rely on videos or Instagram posts to be the push they need to finally do it. Academia works the same. There are many influencers that document their journey through university that can inspire many students to overcome procrastination or just get motivated about their education. To help those who rely on visual aid to get motivated and inspired, we have listed the top five social media influencers to follow for academic inspiration below.
