Meet Gabrielle Epstein.
She is 21 years old, from Australia, and living her best life.
Endorsements are nothing new in the world of Instagram and other photo and video sharing apps. We've heard stories about bloggers who make thousands from pictures and procure massive contracts based on their follower count. It's never been so easy to make money on the internet.
What makes Gabrielle so special, however, is that she is not a part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan and not someone who has been working in the industry for years and years. She was a contender for Miss Universe Australia but, as of last year, Gabrielle was just an Aussie student.
Gabrielle is a Gold Coast based model who has said she makes more money posting selfies to Instagram than she does doing her day job--modelling.

Gabrielle started to gain attention from brands once she passed the 100,000 followers mark, and can make thousands a week from endorsement posts.

Gabrielle's success highlights the fact that one day you can be a person on Instagram and, the next, you could be negotiating deals with retailers and companies.
Here's how to follow in Gabrielle's footsteps.
