With 82.8k followers on instagram, Elena Gurung is famous for caricatures and creating comedy videos. Gurung explains, “Being a social media influencer is a long and slow process and cannot be achieved overnight.”

“It isn’t the same these days, but it was especially a slow and long journey for me as I started getting brand deals and offers only after I crossed over 25 thousand followers on Instagram”, she adds. The only reason Gurung started making videos was because she loved making one. She wanted to make people laugh with her videos. “To make people happy even if it is just for a short time was and still is my main objective to make these videos”, she says.
