If you need a good dose of positive energy – and my guess is that we all do – let me introduce you Nikki Schreiber. Upbeat, optimistic and full of love, Nikki is the Creator of Humans of Judaism. I got the chance to meet Nikki in person a few months ago while I was in New York and I had a great time. Her positivity and good nature is contagious and if you haven’t heard of Humans of Judaism, well, thank me later. You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch Your host, It is Monday, April 23, and we’re on the 55th episode of Jewish Latin Princess, welcome to the show. You know what they say about overnight success – “it took me ten years to become an overnight success.” Well, it seems like Nikki Schreiber is defying that with the creation and success of Humans of Judaism.
What was the impetus to creating what is now one of the leading Jewish media brands? Did she anticipate it was going to be the success that it turned out to be? Was the Jewish world thirsty for something like this and thus, Humans of Judaism become a leader in its field in such a short amount of time? With over 100,000 followers on instagram and facebook, Nikki is creating a space full of positivity, humor and lightheartedness, where all Jews can feel proud of their heritage and all the things that unite us as a nation.
But, the Internet and social media can be the wild west, how does Nikki keep it positive and stays away from the infiltration of contagious negativity on Human’s diverse social media platforms? Does she ever get to unplug? How? What is next for Humans of Judaism? And who does she look up to? All of this and more, with the delightful, Nikki Schreiber. Head over to Humans of Judaism to subscribe to Nikki’s newsletter and enter into a fun giveaway.
Nikki loves giving tzedakah to Amudim.
