We had the good fortune of connecting with Kendra Miller and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kendra, what inspires you?
I am inspired by PEOPLE. People are the truest form of art to me… with our ability to relate and connect in multiple ways despite all of our different experiences. I live for the excitement I hear in a person’s voice when you understand who they are… appreciate how they see the world and understand the beauty they see in themselves. I try to use my talents and gifts to see those qualities in people or make them feel it in themselves… BELIEVE IT… and use it to be the best version of them that they choose to shoot for…
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is all about seeing the natural beauty of the world… people… who we are. Art for me is loving things in their purest state and working to highlight that beauty for the world to see. In yoga, the art is in the freedom of movement and mind. In acting, it’s the freedom of allowing yourself to dive into another person’s life long enough to create a beautiful story(even out of tragedy). In comedy, it’s making life more enjoyable by showing the beauty of being relatable… of understanding that while it isn’t always easy, life is still worth living. Through modeling, it’s highlighting the culture, style and inspiration of others in a way that inspires the audiences who view it as well. In all of this is the space for people to find peace, excitement, joy(it said jiu down below?) and a multitude of other emotions just by experiencing your talents and sharing that energy. It’s magical.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I always start by giving God all the praise for allowing me to be a vessel to reach people in a positive way. I think my parents for being the amazing people they are and placing sound values of family, loyalty and dedication.
