Check out our interview with Asian/Latina model, actress, podcast host, and social media content creator Kat Arielle.
Hi Kat, please tell us a little about you?
I’m Kat Arielle @katxarielle half Asian/Latina creator in LA. I post fashion, TikTok’s, and modeling. I speak Spanish fluently and some Mandarin Chinese!
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Passionate, family-oriented, hard worker
How and when did you start into modeling?
I started modeling after I saw my Instagram growing exponentially in 2018
What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?
What’s fun about modeling is that you get paid to look beautiful in front of a camera. One reward is I get to keep a bunch of cute clothes! The worst part about being a model is that people assume I’m just a pretty face, when actually I got a Bachelor’s from Pepperdine University.
The most important thing when you are shooting is?
Be professional, be yourself, and have a positive attitude!
What’s your advice for the newer models and influencers?
Don’t quit even if you feel like your social media is not growing at the pace you were expecting. You never know when a big modeling opportunity will come up!
How did you get started into the social media business?
I started posting on Instagram because I wanted to showcase my fitness journey
When you started your social media accounts, did you expect such a success?
No I didn’t. I needed a place to track my fitness progress. I also wanted an outlet for creative expression. I’ve always enjoyed posing in front of a camera.
What mindsets helped make you so successful and popular?
Don’t stop working until you’re at the top. Don’t settle for less. Believe in yourself and manifest the life you want
Now tell us about the huge TikTok success and what are you doing to keep it going and growing even more?
I’m consistent. I post every day and stay up to date on the trends
Who is your role model?
I look up to strong women entrepreneurs like Kim Kardashian that built a successful empire by monetizing being sexy and smart. She is a boss and a great mom at the same time!
What advice would you give to your younger self and why?
The people that are hating on you are going to end up looking up to you
What do you think of social media?
It’s a great place to market yourself, make friends, and monetize your content!
What’s next for Kat Arielle in 2022?
Continuing to grow my social platforms and streaming on TikTok. I also want to get into acting more!
Where do you see yourself and your career in 5 years from now?
In 5 years I would hope to have already met my soulmate, be married, and have at least 2 kids. I’m Christian and family is #1 to me. I would document my relationship and motherhood on my social media.
