We speak to influencer Jehangir Khan AKA Khan Diaries about his goals, his career as a male influencer and more.
How does it feel being one of the few male influencers in the industry?
It was pretty weird at first, but also game-changing. I always wanted to pave the way for male creators and encourage them to take risks.
How have you seen the social media game change since you started out?
When I started blogging in 2015, there were very few people in the game. Now you pick up a rock and youâ€™d find an influencer underneath.
Who are your favourite Pakistani designers?
Munib Nawazâ€™s outfits are meant for me, they fit like a glove every time. I also love wearing my mothers brand, The Chapa House which is bringing a fusion of organic block printing back into the fashion game.
What do you do on your days off from work?
As a creative person, the mind never rests. I do like to spend quality time with family and friends and Netflix with my dog Odin.
Do you work out?
Yes! The only way I can fight all my demons. I believe itâ€™s the best therapy for everybody.
What are your hobbies?
Traveling, experiencing different cultures, I also love learning languages.
Name three things on your bucket list.
- Do a short film as a lead.
- Be a successful entrepreneur.
- Take mama for Umrah / Hajj (Inâ€™shaâ€™Allah).
What advice would you give to aspiring young people who want to be like you?
People will drag you down even if you join the herd mentality, so be fearless & BE YOU. Donâ€™t be like me or anyone but discover yourself and be the best version of yourself. Also, stay humble!
