We’ve been hanging out on our story all Grammys weekend with artist Alicia Keys (@aliciakeys), who is hosting for the second time and also performing. Ahead of the big @recordingacademy event, she’s been sharing what it takes to prepare.⁣⁣ ⁣ But in the wake of today’s news that NBA legend #Kobe Bryant had passed, everyone needed to regroup. For Alicia, it was important to honor the NBA legend, who played for 20 years on the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center, where the Grammys are held. “I think we figured out how to really bring honor and love his way, in his house,” explains Alicia. “We’re lifting each other up with love and appreciation and celebrating his life.” ❤️

Parker Kit Hill (@parkerkithill) refuses to be pigeonholed. “I don’t fit into any one box,” says the breakout star who acts, dances, models and more. Parker started posting videos online when he was just 17, and quickly picked up a following for his fierce attitude and outrageous sense of fun. Now 23, having come of age in selfie mode, he’s never tried to fit a mold in order to fit in. “I was always outcasted, bullied, ostracized and picked on for wanting to be me,” says Parker. “When people recognize me in public it kinda reminds me that I’m not this small-town boy anymore — and that what I’m doing means a lot to people.” 🤗 ⁣ ⁣ This month, we’re looking to the future with #2020Vision.

Natalie Glaze and Zanna van Dijk met because of Instagram. Today, they’re the #founders of Stay Wild Swim (@staywildswim), a sustainable swimwear brand designed and stitched in London. 💕 The pair’s deep connection to sustainability and the ocean inspired them to start the company together. But neither had a formal background in fashion. “For us, there was so much bliss in the naiveté of just beginning our business,” explains Zanna. “We started out not really knowing what we were getting ourselves into and gave it a go — and the next thing you know, we’re in up to our necks.” To see even more #founders stories, check out @instagramforbusiness

Victoria Garrick (@victoriagarrick) is no stranger to finding balance in the face of pressure. As a public speaker, content creator and former student athlete, she speaks openly about the real pressures of social comparison. “The pressure to be perfect stems from a societal belief that perfection is the only way to be good enough,” says Victoria. “I tried to attain these unrealistic standards of beauty, get straight As in school, become a star athlete and constantly seem happy. I was so consumed with portraying a perfect image and pretty Instagram aesthetic that I lost sight of what it meant to be me,” she says. “When I finally realized I was living for likes and validation from others online, I wanted to find a way to get back to being real and authentic.”⁣ ⁣ Instagram partnered with the Jed Foundation (@jedfoundation) to create a toolkit addressing the Pressure to be Perfect, recognizing that what you see posted by others is just one part of their story.

Artist Mischelle Moy’s (@lilmisch) digital compositions = portals to another dimension. “I’ve always been drawn to the odd and otherworldly, whether archaeological findings or discoveries of life on other planets,” she says. “These ‘plant holders’ are very special to me, because they combine both a paradisal sunset vibe with an extraterrestrial sense of existence that is illustrated (mostly separately) throughout my work.” #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Photo illustration by @lilmisch
