At the age of 22, Kissa McCarty is one of the few that has managed to take a small chance and turn it into a driving force behind her life. Following a repost from Barstool Sports, she has found a way to amass a following of 1.3 million on Instagram and has decided to take on becoming a social media influencer as a full-time job. Following Instagram, she has also started to conquer Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, and Onlyfans as well.
From the young age of 7 years old, Kissa McCarty was engrossed in the world of gymnastics and was ushered into the spotlight from childhood. Despite being born and raised in a small town, Kissa was ready to branch out and grow into becoming a globally recognized influencer.
By the age of 14, Kissa took a job at her local pizza parlor, taking the opportunity to do so as soon as she reached the legal age to work. With a strong mentality and work ethic, she eventually decided to pursue an education in electrical engineering.
In high school, Kissa was balancing work and school while maintaining high GPAs in all of her AP classes, and building towards her own career. It was after graduating high school that all of her hard work would pay off, as she set off to college to study electrical engineering.
While working at an internship learning how to PCB (Print circuit board), one of Kissa’s Instagram posts was reposted by Barstool Sports, launching her small following into the thousands overnight. Kissa, seeing an opportunity to hone in, used this to launch a fitness and influencer brand for herself, and began to grow her pages massively.
Now, a senior in college, Kissa McCarty is poised to enter adulthood as someone who has a very promising path to follow. Through hard work and belief in herself, she has taken herself from a small-town girl to an icon ready to be recognized worldwide. Through events like being invited to Kevin Durant’s 31st birthday, she will be able to build the connections she needs to take her career to the next level.
