    Ep. 41 Becoming Toro Gato: Kat Graham's Evolution in Hollywood & Advice

    How do multi-hyphenates stay inspired and true to themselves? Kat Graham, visionary, actor, and humanitarian, shares her answer and more for this BONUS episode of Season 4 of the Conscious Kitchen Podcast. Co-host Laura takes the conversation back in time, 13 years back to be exact, to reminisce of early adventures in the creative fashion scene and the Hollywood Dim Mak (Steve Aoki) era. A time where LA culture was being reinvented, and doors were opening for Kat to become the "it girl" at every red carpet event.

    Kat dives into how vital true friendship can be when you're coming up in Hollywood, the racism and bullying she experienced while working on The Vampire Diaries, and why she decided to not move back to Los Angeles when the show wrapped. Tune into this very personal discussion on relationships, honoring humble beginnings, Kat's legacy, and advice on how to set your dreams and goals on fire.

    Kat Graham, now Toro Gato has gone through quite the evolution, and the path has been filled with thoughtful insight. Inspiration for 2022 and beyond! Get ready to take some notes.

Nourishing food for the ears/soul!

So far, I’m barely 3 different episodes in and I can say I thoroughly love the content. I am very inspired by these powerhouse women and their guests. The ep with Tara Bailey👏🏽. It is pleasant to hear such well-versed discussions that are not just organic but very applicable to the majority of the humankind. Well-spoken discussions that give us kind reminders that we are endlessly Students of Life as well as being Teachers 🌎. Truly a MUST channel in your podcast toolbox!
