The New Face of Tanduay White

Viva Artists Agency's most recent discovery, Kara Mitzki, is the featured beauty on the official 2017 calendar of Tanduay White -- one of the leading drinks in the country. She joins the likes of Heart Evangelista, KC Concepcion, Jennylyn Mercado, and Jessy Mendiola in the brand’s roster of ambassadors.

Kara is a multi-talented star who can sing, dance, and act. She was born in the Philippines but was raised in Sydney, Australia. Her mom is Filipino-Japanese, while her dad is part Filipino, Spanish, and Greek, hence, her very foreign-sounding last name.  

She got more than her family name from her dad. She was born into a family of musicians on her dad’s side, and she started singing and dancing very early, when she was around 3 years old.

Kara had her first taste of showbiz in 2010 when she did some TV commercials, print ads, and TV guestings, but she had to be on hiatus after one year, in order to finish her studies and take a role in her family business. 

She couldn’t stay away for long. The self-described “born to be in showbiz” star returned to being a performer full-time in 2015, concentrating on her singing career. 

She really loves to perform live in front of the crowd, and it makes her so happy whenever she's on stage. 

It was in one of Tanduay's live gigs where she got noticed, and the ball towards her brand ambassadorship started rolling. But it wasn’t a walk in the park. Kara had to work hard to be in the best shape to clinch the deal. 

She admitted that she had been into hardships and training just to bag the endorsement. She said, "this is a major break for someone like me who’s just starting out in showbiz. Now that it’s finally here I consider it a big honor. Besides, I really drink Tanduay White. I think it’s one of the best so far that Tanduay has ever created. Masarap sya gawing cocktail.”

Now, Kara is ready for bigger things. Among her dreams for her showbiz career is a debut album with original songs, a major concert, a launching movie, regular TV shows, and awards. She would also love to work her local idols like Sarah Geronimo, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, and actor-singer Sam Milby. 

Kara vows to keep working hard, perhaps harder than ever, now that more doors are starting to open up for her.

“I’m the type of person who doesn’t back down from challenges. I actually challenge myself and I’m always on the lookout for ways to make my life interesting. I would say that I’m very unpredictable in a good way," Kara describes herself.
