Okay, who watched Season 23 of The Bachelor (featuring the delicious Colton Underwood)? *RAISES BOTH HANDS… AND BOTH HANDS HAVE WINE IN THEM.
My favorite from the start was Kirpa Sudick… she is half-Indian, half-Caucasian… just like me! Beyond that, she’s a sexy dental hygienist with serious humor. I loved how she handled all the drama that went on towards the end, didn’t you?
By now we all know she didn’t win Colton’s heart, but she made it to the top of the ladies!!! I was lucky enough to sit down with her for a five minute Q & A session… to talk life post-Bachelor and what her experience has been as an overnight influencer!
Sonia: How has your life changed after the Bachelor?
Kirpa: There have been a lot of positive changes in my life post-Bachelor. I made so many great girlfriends on the show and I’m incredibly blessed to have this newfound family in my life. Another change is that I sometimes get recognized when I go out in public. Everyone I’ve met is extremely nice and always has something supportive to say, which is great. I also now have the opportunity to attend more events for different companies. Other than that, my life is pretty much the same. I’m still practicing dental hygiene and pursuing other interests.
Sonia: What does being an influencer mean to you?
Kirpa: To me, being an influencer means using your platform to lift up and inspire others. I’ve always loved helping others, which is a big reason why I became a dental hygienist. I’d love to apply this joy of giving back to influencing as well.
Sonia: Post-Bachelor… you continue to be in the spotlight and are almost at 100,000 followers on Instagram! What are the challenges you are facing now as an influencer?
Kirpa: It’s weird to think that almost 100,000 people want to know what I’m up to! I think the hardest thing for me has been learning how to engage with my followers. I’m not used to talking to the camera or recording videos of myself, so that has taken some time to adjust to.
Sonia: We know that were a dental hygienist first, before you were an influencer. How do you balance both careers?
Kirpa: Luckily, my schedule as a dental hygienist is very relaxed. I am able to work two to three days a week doing dental hygiene and spend the rest of my week focusing on influencing.
And that’s a wrap… I love keeping up with Bachelor contestants post-seasons… is that weird? It’s so beautiful to see them find love and blossom into someone amazing. Keep on influencing Kirpa, we love you girlie!!!
