Tikok star Alexandra Pohl famous as Xandra, is about to hit 1 million followers on her TikTok handle, and ahead of International Women's Day, she sat down with E! News and talked about how she broke into Miami's male-dominated DJ scene.
The TikTok star and female DJ bravely shared that her journey toward becoming a successful DJ was challenging, particularly in a predominantly male industry. She demonstrated immense perseverance and dedication in overcoming obstacles that are unfortunately all too common for women in the music scene.
Xandra went on to reveal that she has been Djing since her junior year in high school. She just got bored and felt like music was calling. The 22-year-old said she loved music and music festivals and had been attending those since grade school. Xandra continued,
"I really want to do music, but I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't produce. What can I do?' I was like, 'I can mix."
However, Xandra's mom was by her side, and she asked her to get a DJ board. Her mom replied, "What are you talking about? You know what? OK, fine, let's go to the store." The supportive mom knew what Xandra was going through and helped her.
After that, she began practicing. She sat down at her computer with her mixer for hours on YouTube, teaching herself. The DJ said the beginning was pretty awful. After that, Xandra came to Miami and broke into the frat scene. The TikToker said,
"It's a hard industry for a female to break into, especially in Miami and especially through the frat scene. It definitely made me a lot harder as a person. But it really paid off. I did my first club at 18 in Miami and I've been doing it ever since."
Now, Xandra is doing well in the DJ scene. Meanwhile, this is not the first time Xandra has opened up about her journey to become a DJ. Back in 2022, she shared a TikTok video and talked about how she became a DJ.
