The beginning of the year is the perfect time to reflect on what you’re consuming, and that includes who and what you’re tuned in to on social media. If you’re all about good vibes and fresh energy in 2019, these 10 extraordinary people will surely add some magic to your timeline. You know their names, but see what it is about their pages that has people talking.


Will Smith has only been on Instagram for a year, but he’s already producing social media gold. He really makes you feel like you’re a part of his journey. Followers get what seems like a very intimate and authentic look at his life – thoughts on his failures and shortcomings included.  Whether it’s an actual laugh out loud moment, a few head nods, or even a tear or two, the Fresh Prince will definitely make you feel some type of way.


Amber Wagner is someone to watch in 2019. The proud BBW and Inglewood native shares with her 1.7 million followers on Instagram her eccentric style, raps, funny tidbits about life, spiritual wisdom, and my favorite — her elaborate two-inch nails. Wagner isn’t new to social media fame, but recently she’s taken a more uplifting approach to being real with her followers.

🌟The Power of a WHY🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “She remembered who she was and the game changed.” I am: A survivor. A fighter. A hard worker. A go-getter. I find strength in what frightens me. I do not give up. I do not give in. I dream big, and then I build what I dream about into my reality. Why? Because I had cancer. But cancer never had me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cancer is why I wake up every morning ready to attack my goals. It’s why I don’t give up when things get tough. I find a way. It’s why I put in work at the gym day in and day out. It’s why when someone tells me I won’t make it, I accept the challenge and prove them wrong. What was once my worst nightmare is now my daily fuel🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So what fuels you? What drives you to wake up each morning and fight for your dreams? WHY do you work hard? What keeps you pushing through? When someone asks you “why do you do what you do,” what is your response? The second you can pinpoint that exact answer, you will be unstoppable.💥 🌟If you know your WHY already, comment it below! Then read through some others, and get inspired✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A post shared by Rickey Thompson (@rickeythompson) on

Rickey Thompson is a whole mood. The Raleigh native and vine veteran dominated the viral Internet scene with shady rants and impromptu dance sessions. He’s walked the catwalk for Alexander Wang and recently made a cameo in a music video for rapper Amine. Thompson is “booked and busy,” so expect more magic in 2019.


The model-turned-actress, author, wife, mom, “de-motivational” speaker and clapback queen is hilarious, raw, and relatable. Do yourself a favor and hit the follow button. Her tweets will keep you grounded and definitely spice up your timeline.


Wesley Snipes is considered a legend. He’s known for his various roles in Hollywood and infamously avoiding $7 million in taxes (but not jail time).  After serving nearly three years in correctional facilities for tax evasion, he’s definitely found his footing again and a niche on twitter.
