The Berlin-based journalist, entrepreneur, and minimalist style icon BrendaHashtag is much more than your average influencer. She started her instagram back in 2013 with few expectations and has since grown her following to nearly 100k. Her social growth is in no doubt due to a combination of her impeccable taste in design and her natural approachability—she's constantly communicating with her audience and creating forum-like discussions where her followers can interact through her instagram stories.

After receiving a masters degree from Central Saint Martins at the end of 2017, Brenda relocated to her favorite city in the world, Berlin, and is in the process of launching her new business endeavor, Disruptive Berlin. We followed Brenda around her beautifully-furnished apartment and chatted about social media, minimalism, and what she's working on next.
