Sometimes I wish I was the quiet type of girl, the type of girl that can just keep her mouth shut instead of always having something to say. I sometimes even think about giving the quiet life a go, and after some deliberation, I wake up from the nightmare and say. . . .ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT Our voices are our best weapon against inequality. Never silence yourself, be fearless, you are you, and that is the greatest power of all. Happy International Women’s Day

The star may not have found love or even won the big prize on Love Island, but she has come out a winner anyway, earning the most out of any her fellow Islanders since leaving the villa.
The reality star shared an inspirational post on Instagram
The 25-year-old is earning as much £4,500 for sponsored Instagram posts, way more than even the winners Finn Tapp and Paige Turley.
Shaughna is on track to be the highest earner from her season even though she was dumped late in the series.
Compared to the London beauty, Finn and Paige only earn about £6,739 between them per post.
Thanks to her catchphrases ‘congrats hun’ and her romance woes with Callum and Molly, Shaughna has become a fan favourite, boasting 1.5 million Instagram followers.
Fans were quick to fall in love with Shaughna when Callum dumped her for Molly after returning from Casa Amor and she decided not to enter into a relationship with any of the other contestants.
“I thought regardless ‘whoever I couple up with now it will never be as strong’,” she said in a radio interview during the week.
The jilted Islander might be laughing all the way to the bank with her new found fame, but her earnings do not even come close to some of the reality show’s highest earners.
At the top of the earnings table is season five’s Molly-Mae Hague who can make up to £12,000 per post.
Dani Dyer from season four follows closely earning almost £11,000 for her Instagram posts, which goes to show that winning the reality dating competition does not always mean being the most successful after the series.
Only four of these finalists are in the top 10 highest potential earners overall, according to research from onlinecasinos.co.uk which reviewed the Instagram profiles of 182 UK Love Island contestants from 2015 to 2020 to work out how much each Islander could make after a stint on the show.
Instagram influencers such as reality TV stars can make thousands of pounds per year for posting sponsored content on their social media channels.
