As social media becomes the new norm, more and more people are finding ways to make careers as influencers.  

Now students can learn how to do that by joining The Influencer Club. 

Nayahna Trevino, president and founder of The Influencer Club, applied to register the club as an interest group in fall 2023, and this is its first official semester.

“I would just say that it’s for, like, all creatives in general, and really just to help build on the social media landscape of TAMUSA,” Trevino said of  the organization. 

The club offers a collaborative space for business-savvy people looking to network with one another, and learn to conduct their social media presence professionally. 

Although the organization cannot host collaborative events with other organizations, Trevino is ensuring that her club is active by scheduling internal events such as inviting guest speakers.

The most recent guest speaker day was a talk about women in content creation on Feb. 22 in the Ceremony Room of Patriots Casa, featured, Sarah Bernal, Briana Jiselle, as well as Tally Joyce. All are influencers from San Antonio . 

The speakers shared their journeys and growth strategies for their social media page, and the challenges of being an entrepreneur . 

“Any industry, you’re always gonna be promoting yourself online, you’re gonna need to put yourself out there, and social media, your instagram page is starting to become like your Linkedin,” Trevino said. “They’re looking at the organizations that you are involved in and the businesses that you pursue so it’s becoming more a part of who you are so it’s gonna be more relevant in your job opportunities.”
