An Australia woman says she went into thousands of dollars into debt for trying to impress her friends on Instagram.
The BBC reports Fiona Melbul spent over $10,000 for a six-week vacation to Disneyland so she could impress her friends on Instagram. However, Melbul knew she was not able to afford the vacation to California so she used her credit cards to fund her trip. The 27-year-old explained her situation on Australia’s news show ‘A Current Affair.’
“My brother said ‘I’m going to Disneyland’ and I said ‘You’re not going without me!’ So I got a loan.
“I think the trip, all up, costs about 8K. All on credit.”
She also stated on the show that she currently has 777 followers on Instagram and wanted to impress them with the “perfect shot.”
“You take those 10, 20 shots to take the perfect one, post on social media, then you wait for your friends to see it. “Then you get all those comments of them being jealous. It makes me feel good that I can do that.”
