FlashOn Instagramers 1.18: @Ktrap
Each week we discover new and interesting feeds in Instagram. This section FlashOn is an open space where we give a shout out and promote IG users. No need to have thousands and thousands of followers! Soon, it could be your turn!
This week we decided to highlight @Ktrap
I discovered him through Deepa Chaudhary ( @deeparocks in Instagram and Twitter). Deepa sent me a kind mail talking about a guy she recently interviewed in her blog. An american guy with a “truly inspirational life and work”, a guy called Kirby Trapolino who dedicates his life to other people. Caring for orphans, child trafficking victims, at-risk women and destitute children of the slums… This story particularly caught my attention on IG.
I decided to feature Deepa Chaudary´s interview this week and feature Kirby aka @ktrap as the grid of the week.

Text by Deepa Chaudary:
Kirby Trapolino also known as @ktrap on Instagram is famous for sharing some truly insightful pictures.
His primary theme is around people living in poverty, from slums of India, to orphans of Nepal. He has over 6000 followers, on an average his pictures get 500+ likes, and an equally high number of comments – his pictures are also frequently selected for the popular page on Instagram.
Kirby did not get a fan following for being a “web celebrity”, in real life he runs a humble nonprofit organization called Peace Gospel, which works in developing countries helping poor earn a living through micro enterprise programs. Due to Peace Gospel’s work in international terrains, Kirby gets to travel to Asia and Africa. His pictures are inspired by his travel and the people he is helping on the ground.
He has earned his popularity on Instagram from the ground up, through his stunning pictures, uniqueness of his subject and his amazing storytelling skills. His captions are inspiring, educational and packed with thought provoking insights”.
Thanks very much for your interest and help Deepa, much appreciated,
