She may only be 3 feet 11 inches tall, but Kat Hoffman has found a way to stand up to the bullies who taunted her in high school — by becoming a successful stripper.
The 26-year-old, who was born with diatrophic dysplasia dwarfism, says she earns $2,000 a week as “Kat the Midget Stripper — and has even found love with a man nearly twice her height!
“I call myself a smile producer — not an exotic entertainer,” she tells Barcroft TV. “I just want to put smiles on people’s faces.”
It was through her unlikely career that she met her six-foot-tall fiancé, Eich Buscher. After seeing her pictures online, he asked a mutual friend to introduce them — and they immediately “clicked.”
“The height difference does pose some problems, but nothing too big that we can’t handle,” the 34-year-old says of his life with his wife-to-be.
Kat says her family — including Eich — are supportive of her career choice. But most importantly, it’s helped her love herself just the way she is.
“This job has taught me to appreciate my body and who I am,” she gushes. “I’m so glad I found it.”
