HELLO KOLTEN! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS KOLTEN KIRSCHKE IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Outside of show biz I’m really just your ordinary teenager that loves gaming with friends and streaming live on twitch.
HOW DID YOU START AND HOW WAS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE IN THE INDUSTRY?
Acting and modeling began at the age of four just by chance. My family and I just happen to be eating at a Barbeque restaurant and ended up in a commercial they were shooting that day! Becoming a singer kind of happened the same way just by chance. While auditioning as a dancer for AMTC they asked me to sing at the audition so they picked me to sing as well at their convention! That winter we were able to attend the convention in Orlando, Florida and won the VIP Choice Award for child singer. Shortly after I signed with an artist developer and haven’t looked back! Entertainment and the stage is where I belong and I’m enjoying the journey.
WHO ARE YOUR ROLE MODELS?
My parents for sure!
AS AN ACTOR, SINGER-SONGWRITER, AND DJ, I ASSUME YOU HAVE ACHIEVED ALMOST EVERY GOAL SOMEONE COULD HAVE. WHAT IS THAT GOAL YOU STILL HAVEN’T ACHIEVED?
Wow! Those goals never end as an entertainer there is so much to learn and achieve it’s never ending. Outside of the entertainment industry there are lots of things I continue to work on as well and strive to achieve. Goals are never ending but two I continue to work on and want to achieve is becoming fluent in other languages and complete a degree in technology.
YOU ARE ALSO AN INFLUENCER, HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE SO POPULAR?
Feel far from popular but I try to do my best to inspire others. God gave us all gifts to share with the world and that’s my purpose in this industry is to be an inspiration and empower others. It feels good to give back and hear all the ways you have inspired others.
WHAT IS THAT ONE THING THAT YOU ALWAYS KEEP IN YOUR MIND WHILE PREPARING YOUR CONTENT?
Quality or Quantity
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU HAVE FOR SOMEONE WANTING TO FOLLOW IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS?
1) Be Brave- it doesn’t have to be perfect and not everyone will like it so don’t be afraid just do it.
2) 100’s of No’s Before a Yes- there will be lots of no’s don’t let it discourage you keep going.
3) Be Yourself- there’s no one like you love you and just be yourself.
4) You Can’t Do It All- you want to do it all but just do what you can and do it your best.
5) Don’t Run Before You Walk- sometimes you want to be where others are at stay focused on your own journey and where you are at.
