Supermodel of the Year 2023
My name is Kristina, a 21-year-old psychology student from Russia, and modeling has played a significant role in shaping my life. Through modeling, I have learned to express myself, developed my social skills, and encountered countless fascinating individuals.
My primary goal is to use my modelling platform to promote women’s mental health. I firmly believe that mental health is crucial, and I want to inspire every girl to lead a happy and fulfilling life. I hope to motivate people to perform acts of kindness and greet each day with a smile.
I also hope to use my platform to inspire and uplift other women in the industry, as well as those outside of it. I am a strong believer in the power of sisterhood and supporting other women. I believe that when women support each other, we can achieve great things and create positive change in the world. I am dedicated to promoting this message and fostering a community of sisterhood and empowerment.
Participating in the Australian Supermodel of the Year program has been an incredible opportunity, and being named the Australian Supermodel of the Year 2023 is a true honor and responsibility that I am humbled to accept. I am determined to use this achievement to spread positivity, empower others, and make a meaningful impact in the world. As I embark on this journey, I hope to shine my light and illuminate the way for others.

Diamond of the Year 2023
My experience with ASOTY was incredibly empowering, exhilarating and educational.
It stands out as one of the most impactful programs I’ve ever participated in. I had the privilege of joining a remarkable group of girls who taught me a lot. The mentors who guided us were instrumental in helping us become the best versions of ourselves and I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
Right from the start, I realized that ASOTY was more than just a modeling competition. Even during the initial interview stages, it was evident that the program had deep values & integrity. While modelling and training were integral parts, there were additional components focused specifically on personal growth, mental health, self-care workshops and much more.
The emphasis on purpose and advocacy was consistently emphasized throughout the program. It became clear to us that we needed to have a purpose, a cause to advocate for. This awareness became immensely important because it provided a powerful platform to express our advocacy extending beyond our modelling & other chosen careers.
I felt a deep sense of belonging and sisterhood with everyone involved. I was truly able to be my authentic self and gained the confidence to express myself openly. ASOTY helped me realize my unrecognised potential showing me that I was capable of more than I ever thought. Through public speaking on social media and self-reflection, the program transformed me into a more confident individual, both personally and professionally
Witnessing the growth of all the girls, from the initial online sessions to our final night in Bali, was a beautiful experience.
