Exclusive Interview

Steven Sanchez, also known as @worldwidevapers on Instagram, has definitely succeeded in his mission of transcending borders with clouds of vapor. Accumulating 50,000 followers since he opened his account in 2013, Steven offers a forum that simultaneously creates and features an increasingly universal vape culture.

 

Zero Hybrid Vaping Box Mod with Custom CoverTHE SWITCH: How did you discover vaping, what enticed you to try it, and what benefits have you personally experienced from making the switch from smoking?

S: A good friend of mine who is like a brother to me introduced me to vaping in early 2013. The first device I ever saw was a Noble 1… we have come such a long way since then, but I will always appreciate the earlier technologies for paving the way. The main benefit I am grateful for even after two years is that I don’t have the urge to smoke or the craving for analogs… As well as an end to the awful stench that lingers after smoking.

 

Beastmode Mod and Vape Organics 100 Percent VG Juice in Blackberry + Mint FlavorTHE ART OF VAPING: The diverse images you feature, both self-produced and community-submitted, showcase a level of craftsmanship that you are clearly inspired by, and rightfully so. Would you describe these pieces as functional art? Please elaborate.

S: I come from a very artistic background that gathers from the diverse arts of Graffiti, Music Production and Music Recording. I have always had a strong passion for immaculate visual art. In every one of the pieces I post, I see a story that goes beyond the mere power of words, and that is what I aim to share. 

VAPE LYFE: There’s no doubt that a full-fledged but nuanced vape culture has continued to evolve over the past few years. What would you say are the unifying threads of this culture? What excites you the most about people coming together from all walks of life under the banner of VAPER?

S: The unification of this industry has truly been my goal from the beginning, through the showcasing of different individuals’ embodiment of their personalized vape lifestyle. So it’s not only a simple means of showcasing a device but also the vaper who stands behind it. The exciting thing about this industry is the way we can all come together when it comes down to advocacy, however I feel the vape fam should always stand together, every single day, not only when we sense an external threat.

 

Worldwide Vapers Reaches 50k Followers on InstagramEVOLUTION: You have been vaping for more than 2 and a half years now. What is your favorite industry advancement that you’ve witnessed during this time?

S: I’ve witnessed so much during this time, but I’d have to say the biggest advancement in this industry is the concept of Variable Wattage devices. The principle behind these devices and the standards that are upheld in their development are ideal for pushing the limits while still maintaining a commitment to safety. 

 

TRAILBLAZER: What made you decide to launch the world wide vapers community? Did you have any strategies specifically for reaching international vapers and how do you feel about recently hitting 50k followers?

Worldwide Vapers - Man with Tattoo Vaping on @worldwidevapers InstagramS: The foundation of World Wide Vapers stems from the idea of showcasing everyday vapers in their natural habitats. As pages showcasing the vape lifestyle in the beginning of my vaping days were very limited, I decided to showcase a broader spectrum of the vape life. I did not limit myself to just local features… I knew what I wanted to do from the beginning, which is showcase the lifestyle aspect all around the world and the many enthusiasts who personify it worldwide. After 1 year in the industry I decided that I would not limit myself to just featuring enthusiasts, hardware, and e-liquid manufacturers—I decided to take it to a higher level and began showcasing my own personal photography, another extension of my passion for art.

Now my latest goal with the help of many people in this industry is to add the element of exclusivity to my posts, whether it’s a high end device/modder that is on the rise to the latest releases of e-liquid companies. As for the 50k mark, I have always remained a humble individual. I don’t see followers, I see enthusiasts… I see people who are transitioning from analog in to the vaping industry. No amount of fame can change my mentality and objectives; I was raised in the mentality that one must stay true and not boast about such things.

 

GURU: You’ve seen and tried it all when it comes to hardware. If you had to pick one set-up, what would it be?

S: My ideal set-up will always be a regulated device, one of which I have been blessed with twice… BMI Box Mod.

    Vaping got me to stop smoking cigs almost immediately. I’ve tried 6 different mods. They are always changing.
