During lockdown, a 19-year-old’s life changed dramatically, with her social media following skyrocketing and a modeling contract signed.

Becky Field, from Consett, near Newcastle, has refined her technique, devoting hours of planning to each photo she uploads.

Becky now enjoys the benefits of being an influencer, including freebies from top brands and the opportunity to model for them, after her Instagram following grew from 5,000 to over 44,000 in just two years.

According to ChronicleLive, the former New College Durham student has now revealed what it’s like to be an influencer.

Becky joined Savalas Models in January 2020 after being spotted on Instagram in Newcastle city centre by the agency.

“I’ve аlwаys loved doing mаke-up аnd clothes.
