Hello, my name is Ioana O’Mara. I graduated in Advanced Software Development. My grandfather introduced me to the world of photography. I enjoy taking photos a lot whether it’s of people, nature or landscapes. Before college I wasn’t a big user of instagram until I went into my first year and heard all about being an influencer. I fell in love with the idea of being yourself and being able to inspire others on social media. I choose to make my instagram account all about fitness, travel, photography, food and fashion. The rest is history!
