Justin Bieber and his 55.3 million Instagram followers can change a person’s life. Just ask Cindy Williams.
Williams, who became the object of a Justin Bieber Instagram post in December, traded in her obscurity and $4.30 per hour baby-sitting gig for a chance to walk down a Madrid runway, Fashionista reported recently.
Less than a month after Justin Bieber introduced Cindy Williams to the world, the 17-year-old Spanish student is cashing in her new-found fame for a trip down the runway at Cibeles – also known as Madrid Fashion Week – in February.
The post from Justin Bieber was innocent enough when the “Sorry” singer inquired — emphatically — in the caption who the girl in the picture was. Once Cindy Williams – and her Instagram account – came to light, her life changed dramatically. Cindy Williams took time to explain how the Instagram post from Justin Bieber changed her life, the Daily Mail reported.
“My life’s changed positively since Justin appeared in my life. At the beginning I felt completely overwhelmed and didn’t know how to deal with it but now I’m getting used to it.”
In the month since Justin Bieber catapulted her to fame, Cindy Williams has entertained a variety of job offers. Yet the student is trying to keep her feet grounded after being handed a golden opportunity.
“I’ve had a lot of job offers since all this happened. I’m constantly receiving calls offering me things, but I’m focused on my studies and fashion commitments I’d already made.”
The fact Justin Bieber was the person who posted the image on Instagram was a big deal to Williams, too. Cindy has been a Belieber for six years, she recounted.
“When I saw Justin was asking about me I got very emotional because I’ve been a fan of his for more than six years… It seems like a fairytale. A friend of mine often used to joke that one day I’d be one of the girls he talked about and I didn’t believe her. My mum’s happy for me with everything new that’s happening in my life.”
Photographs Cindy Williams now posts on Instagram have changed dramatically since Justin Bieber first publicly called her out on his account. The inspiring model has continued to produce new selfies in the last month that accentuate her young beauty.
Instagram models are becoming all the rage. Kaicyre Palmers – referred to as the “World’s Sexiest Nurse” – has used her Instagram account to rise to fame. With over 320,000 followers, Palmers has risen to fame for her willingness to share her beauty in what spare time Kaicyre has away from her work as a registered nurse, The Inquisitr reported.
Famous artists aren’t above using Instagram to connect with the fans. Taylor Swift – who has the most Instagram followers of any individual with 64 million – often makes the internet explode with her use of her Instagram account.
Justin Bieber isn’t a stranger to sharing on Instagram, either. Bieber recently posted several pictures of his recent holiday vacation with long-time friend Hailey Baldwin. One Instagram post especially caused the world to take notice as Justin and Hailey locked lips on New Year’s Eve.
Bieber seemingly used the medium for more spiteful reasons in the recent past. In addition to several photographs with Baldwin, Justin has posed throwback pictures of himself with old flame Selena Gomez after an encounter Bieber and the “Hands To Myself” singer had in November. Debate raged about whether the photograph was an attempt to undermine the once-rumored relationship between Selena Gomez and One Direction’s Niall Horan.
