Kay (@themomtrotter) is an entrepreneur and travel enthusiast who has traveled to over 36 countries with her family, and is currently traveling across the U.S. full time in an RV with her husband and 8-year-old. She is passionate about sharing content on TikTok around finance, parenting, and lifestyle, to show an alternate way of living.
What does it mean to you to be part of the Black community?
As a Black woman, it means everything to me. The community allows me to share experiences and insights with my peers so that we work towards empowering each other and achieving racial and social equity.
How has the TikTok community inspired you?
TikTok is a platform that allows me to create and consume. It has allowed me to share my family experiences with the world – RVing, homeschooling, traveling and more! It’s also a place where I can learn. I tell everyone if you aren't on TikTok, you're missing out. There's so much educational and inspirational content on the app.
What are some of your passions on and off of TikTok?
I love traveling and playing tennis.
What is your dream opportunity?
My dream is to have an unscripted show that showcases the ups and downs of living in an RV as a Black family in the US, while also showing the rewards of living life on your own terms.
What is your favorite travel content to capture?
I love traveling with my family, so any content that captures the world through my son’s eyes is my favorite.
What is your advice to families looking to follow a similar path to you?
People think the way I live is unrealistic, but my mantra is that anything is possible if you put your mind to it – stick to your vision and goal. You can create the lifestyle you want; you just have to be intentional about it. Anything is possible.
