My name is KhrystyAna and I am a body positive activist and a model.
Body positivity for me is about everyone who has a body. I genuinely want people to see how beautiful they really are and understand it and feel it. For me I’m fighting for that person who is on the journey towards self-acceptance, self-love.
Being told not to be a certain way, not to behave a certain way, and especially growing up in Russia, where it’s a specific kind of woman. I didn't feel like I could fit in.
When I was in America’s Next Top Model, I was definitely edited into very sweet and nice and a listener. Sweet is fine. But I’m also really dorky, really clumsy. That's just who I am, and I’m not afraid to be that.
