Hello, it’s Pooja Aka Samosas & Popcorn, and I like to start the discussion on movies and TV so you don’t have to!

This time around, I had a fantastic discussion with Michael (SuperheroTok) about my journey into the world of nerdy things and how that has impacted my time as a content creator.

I never thought in a million years that almost 2,000 people would want to listen to me ramble on about movies and TV, and yet here we are!

The inspiration to utilize my TikTok for movie and TV discussions came from seeing how few BIPOC reviewers and creators there were that discussed anything nerdy that has come out. Being South Asian, I wanted to throw my name out there and get myself involved in the conversation.

At the end of the day, my goal is to have fun and positive discussions that welcome critique and praise about anything. And it’s all resulted in new communities, new friendships, and unique discussions about even things I never considered in the past!

And while I’m still navigating the world of content creation, I have certainly found a place where I belong and have even started doing small series on my page, like my Commentary Fun series.

Episode 1 set up our characters and the overall dynamic. but this episode set up a plot. This series is so amazing! #msmarvel #kamalakhan #marvel #mcu #imanvellani #disney #disneyplus

Being a part of the Nerd Initiative has really helped to expand on my goal and has made a much bigger space for content creators like myself to share their perspectives without judgement.

And that’s what the Nerd Initiative is all about and it’s why I’m happy to be able to share my journey up to now. My hope is that it inspires others to use their voice as well!
