Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
My name is Hector Mayorga, I am an influencer on TikTok, youtube, Instagram. I am also a fashion model and an actor. Currently, I have 800k followers across all platforms. I do what I do because I love to inspire others and it gives me the ability to connect with people in different ways. If I can help brighten up one person’s day, then I am happy and doing my job!
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
What makes me different from a lot of people in this industry is I put a lot of focus into listening! I love hearing different experiences and stories which help me see certain things from different perspectives. Being in this industry you meet a lot of amazing people who have all gone through different things. After hearing their advice and experience, I always try to analyze it and apply it to myself!
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
The moment I realized I wanted to get into the entertainment business was probably in high school. I grew up playing sports all my life, but definitely knew I also wanted to try something different! I started to find a passion for acting around that time, and one led to the other! I was given an opportunity to walk in major fashion runways, including New York Fashion Week. From there I filmed for the show Bestie picks bae “Grandma Edition.” My love for social media came during my first year in college when I started to upload videos and produce my own which thankfully started to gain attraction. I then had the opportunity to record and be a part of my own music video and song “ Wanna Go Back.” Currently, now I have 700k on TikTok, 40k on youtube, and 50k on Instagram which I am extremely thankful for!
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
I think that in life, you always face challenges with everything, but it’s up to you to continue to learn and grow.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
Any new opportunities that I get to work with any acting directors and producers, I am great full!
