Return to Amish star Kate Stoltz has had a bit of an up and down life since leaving her community. There were the usual difficulties being away from the people she knew. There was adjusting to life in the big old modern world. And there was trying to start her own business.
Kate left her community a few years back. After that initial trepidation, there were some big steps she took in order to make sure she was a success. When it comes to her fans and followers, they seem to understand what she overcame. They also seem to understand that she’s still working and working hard. That’s why on one of her most recent Instagram posts, several of her fans made it quite clear what they thought of her. One fan went so far as to call the former recluse an “amazing role model.”
Kate was showing off one of her many designs on her Instagram page when the compliment came in. Since she left her Amish community, Kate has made the most of her opportunities. That means starting a career as a fashion designer. She’s certainly made the most of social media in order to further that career. The most recent post that drew such praise was one showing off a silver skirt she had designed.
Return To Amish Star Showered With Praise
While some of Kate’s followers were indeed interested in the clothes she was showing off, others simply wanted her to know she was appreciated.
“I love you, Kate,” one fan wrote in all-caps. “You are an Amazing Role Model.”
Another follower praised both her and her clothes before asking the big question several others were wondering about.
“Gorgeous! Will you be on the new show?” The user asked.
“Very nice montage of you young lady.” Yet another fan wrote.
Making It On The Outside
While she’s appeared on Return to Amish several times, Kate is actually one of the original cast members of Breaking Amish. She, along with four other youths from the Amish community left that community in order to check out what the outside world was like.
They were certainly thrust into the middle of it, ending up in New York City. That experience gave them the ability to truly see the outside world. It could be argued they were shown just a bit too much of that world. However, it doesn’t appear the young people on the show would agree.
All five members of the original Breaking Amish cast decided to stay out. None of them decided to return to their life in the Amish community. Since then Kate has built her business and built her brand. Clearly that’s led some people to believe she is indeed a role model.
