While it hasn’t always been an easy road (numerous articles detail a robbery that scared the social media influencer so badly, she nearly gave up on staying in the States), Anastasia Kvitko has shown her determination and courage by deciding to stay. She’s made a huge move since then, but she’s stayed in the country she was convinced could fulfill her dreams, and it well on her way to making them a reality.
If you haven’t heard of this rising star, read on to learn more about her and why she’s managed to capture the attention of millions online.

As mentioned above, Anastasia is not native to the States. She actually grew up in Russia, but decided that Miami, Florida would be a better place to make her modeling dreams a reality. Unfortunately, her experience in the city was terrifying for her, and left her questioning what she really wanted, as well as where she belonged.
As anyone who’s accomplished a big dream knows, there’s no way one can get something done if they give up. Anastasia took that to heart and decided not to go back home. Instead, she made her way to the West Coast, where she decided her chances of getting into the business would be even better.
Model with Curves
The robbery wasn’t the only setback she faced in trying to break into the modeling world. Her now-famous curves were something that stopped many agencies from taking her on. Showing the same fighting spirit that kept her in America, Anastasia refused to change to make herself more attractive to the industry. Instead, she embraced her differences and has made name for herself after being compared to Kim Kardashian.
This has been both a good thing and a bad thing. Anastasia has faced quite a lot of online negativity for her similar look, claiming she’s doing it on purpose. There’s also been a lot of controversy over whether or not those curves are natural. The good side was, those same comparisons have brought her a huge surge in followers, which helps her get closer to her goal.
After getting a huge following, Anastasia landed a gig hosting a Bikini Fashion show in Miami. Not a surprising choice, as she regularly shows off her curves with confidence in the latest swimwear on her Instagram.
She didn’t waste a lot of time after she started gaining huge followers to monetize her social media. She quickly began promoting brands and establishments she loves, offering discount codes to her followers. She also posted on her Instagram about a shoot for her own 2018 Calendar.
The 5’5 model has over seven million Instagram followers. Her account, @anastasiya_kvitko, is verified by the site, and takes followers along with her as she travels and works, showing off exotic locations and the latest fashions. There are numerous videos of her fashion week adventures, as well. It also gives followers a glimpse into her daily life. One can also find her on Twitter, where she has attracted over a thousand followers, at @OfficiaI_Kvitko
