Modeling requires discipline. It is an art form. To be a model, a woman must be physically fit, but more than that, she must maintain a certain mental composure: sticking to a strict diet, having the will to train, and being organized enough to meet a hectic schedule. K&N model, Karol Martin, does all of these things. Her strength stems from a background in classical ballet. For 15 years, she danced. The grace she learned in the studio influences her still. Karol says, “Ballet influenced my entire life, not just modeling. It taught me dedication, structure, and elegance. While other kids were partying, I was training. My favorite memories were performing: the butterflies were always amazing.” She learned discipline in dance, and this has carried her into a successful career.

In her youth, Karol also played golf and ran track. Her whole life centered around fitness and competition. Being in these sports taught her time management skills and healthy eating habits. Karol confides, “I was a very busy kid, always training. I never grew up playing video games or eating junk food.” Even in adulthood, when she can buy crunchy, sugary snacks for herself, Karol avoids the decadence. When asked if she has a favorite treat, she responds, “I don't have any ‘treats.' In-N-Out or a big carne asada burrito would be my guilty pleasure, I guess. Never been a candy or soda person.” This diet allows Karol to maintain a model-like physique and perform her job to the best of her abilities. She also focuses on fitness, listing her hobbies as, “work, work, gym, and more work.”

This tiny dancer was born in San Diego, California. Spanish is her first language; she learned English in third grade. Karol went to Otay Ranch High School. From there, she attended Santa Barbara City College before transferring to San Diego State as a communications major. Her modeling career took off when she was just 20 years old. She was referred to an agency, and the rest is history. Karol has worked for numerous name brand companies like “Adidas, Reebok, Asics, Lululemon, Harley Davidson, Coors Light, and of course K&N.” She’s also worked in TV, appearing in Hit the Floor on VH1. Filming for this show is Karol’s favorite modeling memory: “Getting to shoot the TV show felt like I was in a dream. I always wanted to start modeling, and I can't believe my dreams became a reality.”

Karol models full-time, traveling back and forth between London and the United States. She is committed to her career and focused on building her brand. Modeling, though glamorous, can be a difficult profession. It requires high energy levels: there is lots of traveling and long hours on set. However, it’s like a cake walk for Karol. She is determined and disciplined. With her ballet background, she glides through the modeling world en pointe.
