Model, Influencer, and body positivity advocate Khrystyana is known for being a former "America’s Next Top Model" contestant on Cycle 24 of the reality tv show. Since her time in "ANTM", she has been advocating for change in the fashion industry, especially in modeling.

 

Being a curvy model herself, she decided to start a nonprofit organization called The Real Catwalk. It's also an annual event in which she invites people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and orientations to participate in the runway event. Many who participate in this event advocate for different body types in the fashion industry as well as inclusion. The venues for these events often range from the Brooklyn Bridge in New York and Times Square to London.

 

Khrystyana is not only an advocate for body inclusivity, but she is also an advocate on all things having to do with living a better life, wWhether that be mental health, skincare, or even brands that are inclusive as well. We stan for a queen who loves to encourage healthy lifestyles!

 

 Her bold personality is often portrayed through her Instagram, often posting reels about having confidence, owning your body, and fashion. She also took part in the “Celine Dion” TikTok challenge were she definitely slayed! 

 

She uses her platform to engage her viewers on recent events that are going on and information on how to support those who need the help. She also partners with others to help models on their career journeys by giving modeling advice and often sharing her honest opinions on her Instagram about the industry. 

 

Her fellow "ANTM" contestant on Cycle 24, Jeana Turner, is also a part of The Real Catwalk and often collaborates with Khrystyana. Her work is surely recognizable and we can’t wait to see how she will change the fashion industry!
