Today, not many people remember Nikol Štíbrová as the young actress from the series Pojišťovna štěstí. It's a fact that many years have passed since we saw the beautiful blonde on television, and nowadays her name is more frequently associated with social networks and the famous group of women 3 in 1. We've managed to interview the famous and popular influencer on the occasion of the opening of the new Café Graff in the center of Prague.
Nikol has over 450,000 followers on her Instagram account. With her snappy posts and videos, she managed to not only entertain, but also influence or inspire many of her fans.
"Eighty-five percent of my followers are female, mostly mothers. Whenever I share something related to motherhood or something about my son Mathias, I notice that it generates a much greater response and success than anything else,"
reported Nikol, who cannot complain about negative comments and "haters" among her followers. Thanks to her sharp wits, she's sure to provide entertainment even for those, who might otherwise feel inclined to write something disagreeable. Mothers, on the other hand, come to her for support.
"The moms who follow me on social networks feel they can confide in me with their problems. It often happens that they describe their life situations to me and I try to give them an answer. I'm aware that mothers usually feel lonely on maternity leave, and so they communicate with me like they would with a friend,"
Nikol continued. Although most her fans on Instagram are mothers, in real life - as she personally admitted to LP-life.cz - Nikol is not exactly surrounded by mothers.
"I'm one of the very few people in my social environment, who has a child. I'm therefore looking forward to my two closest friends getting pregnant, because some things in life simply aren't transferable, they have to be experienced,"
she added. It's true that once a woman becomes a mother, she can no longer imagine her life without a child. Her opinions on various situations begin to change.
"Now, as a mother, I can be more tolerant of other people and more sympathetic to other mothers. I know how difficult it is to raise a child and I myself am coping with it as best I can. I didn't get any instruction manual for raising a child in the maternity hospital and so I follow my instincts,"
Nikol continued with a smile, adding that if she wants to go out on her own, with friends or with her new boyfriend, she leaves her little son with her mother, who works as a doctor.
"She helps me very much and I'm very grateful for that. I realize that nowadays, it can't be taken for granted that grandparents help you with your child, so I really appreciate it,"
