FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you from and where do you live?
This question doesn't have a simple answer: as soon as I was born near Paris, we moved to east of France a few years, and then to Tahiti which is were I spent most of my child/teenage hood ! Tahiti is and always will be home for me. I currently live in Paris, France.
How old are you?
I'm a 1993 baby!
Why Amelie Tahiti ?
Years ago I created all accounts (email, msn..) with this name because it was super easy to remember. Then I started a personal instagram, which turned into something a little bit less personal lol ;) but I kept the name!
What is your job, what did you study?
I'm a self-entrepreneur, currently full time 'influencer', and qualified yoga teacher :). My work revolves around creating content on my blog, instagram and youtube to help you as much as I can! I love creating unique, dreamy quality content for brands too. Before that I was a financial auditor/accountant for a few months. I graduated in finance/accounting from HEC Montreal business school in 2014.
When & Why did you go vegan?
I went vegan around June 2015. For me, it was an overall awakening to align my values (ethics, health, ecology) to my actions.
Do you follow a particular plant-based diet ?
No, apart from eating healthily, whole foods most of the time! I have tried a few diets when I first turned vegan but it really wasn't for me. I like eating real unprocessed food and be creative with what I eat. I'm not a big fan of super oily or deep-fried food! I'm mindful about eating the right macro-elements & nutrients to help me live my best, but i really don't obsess about anything ! :) If you want to learn more about nourishing your body in a physiological, healthy, vegan way, check out the Nourish Page!

How often do you workout ?
Here's my exercice routine.
What is your camera/kitchen equipment ?
All my equipment is listed here.
How do you edit your photos on instagram ?
I use my own presets in Adobe Lightroom on my computer. It's definitely been a big learning curve but I'm super proud of where I've come! I really want to start to talk more about editing & photography in the near future, and maybe create a preset pack for you! For instagram stories I either use the filters in the app, or Lightroom Mobile which is free!
How do you edit your videos ?
I use final cut pro x
How do you make money from social media ?
I have various streams of income: selling my own products on amelietahiti.com (ebook, guides, and more soon!) is my favourite way and I hope to eventually just be able to do this! But I also do: content creation for brands, product endorsement (although I tend to keep to minimum!), ads from youtube (when I upload a video! haha). All paid content/sponsored posts are clearly mentioned/hashtaged. I am extremely careful and picky about the brands & products I promote. I personally approve/use everything I promote as I would not like to be advertised a mediocre product.
I have another question, how do I contact you ?
For personal questions leave it as a comment on my latest instagram post, I read and reply to all! You can also ask in our private facebook group :)
Question about my ebooks + collabs, e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
