Anastasia Kvitko moved from Russia to Miami inorder to get more opportunities as a model at age 17. Anastasia was tempted to abandon her dreams and return to Russia after she was robbed at gunpoint.


2. Rejected as a model:

Despite her robbery experience, she decided to send applications to modeling agencies in the United States. Anastasia Kvitko was rejected and told to lose body weight. However, Anastasia refused to do so and kept on aspiring to be a model on her own terms.

This made Anastasia focus on social media. Anastasia's photos on Instagram were able to earn her millions of followers.


3. Body Shamed:

Just like Lizzo, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian and many other female celebrities, Anastasia Kvitko was also body shamed by fans on social media. The incident happened in 2017 when the Russian model just had 5.4 million Instagram followers. Anastasia Kvitko hit back at her body shamers, claiming she is completely natural.


4. Accused of being a kim Kardashian copycat:

As Anastasia Kvitko became more famous, critics and followers started accusing her of intentionally modeling herself on Kim Kardashian. She was then dubbed the 'Russian Kim Kardashian.'

Anastasia Kvitko overcame this setback in an interview: "I like Kim Kardashian, but I don’t quite like being compared to her, she is far behind me."
