Who is Virginia Salas Kastilio?

- Virginia really blew me away with how fun it was to talk to her. She's got a t-shirt brand which is based in an interesting idea: you see someone wearing the shirt, you give them a hug. Here's the link. 

- She's the founder and CEO of the very first (not kidding) Snapchat consulting agency. If you want to grow a product launch, your business, or any other pet project, and you think Snapchat can help you get there, she's actually the best in the biz. 

- We also alluded to Virginia's fame. Here's her username: ginicanbreathe. Add her!

- Here's a wonderful breakdown of the pros and cons of fame. Very insightful essay. 

- Cornell study which shows the differences in the way we use Snapchat vs. other social media platforms.
