Fresh out of high school, Nikita Dragun began her journey to social media stardom on Instagram after which she created her eponymous You Tube channel in February 2013.
She started out mainly as a makeup and beauty vlogger.
Her beauty tutorial and lifestyle vlogs have fetched her over 1.6 million You Tube subscribers and a whopping 2.8 million Instagram followers.
In addition to her flourishing career as a beauty and fashion expert, Nikita Dragun is also an LGBTQ activist.
Being transgender herself, the Instagram star uses her vast reach across various social media platforms to draw attention to major issues affecting the trans community.
Though Nikita Dragun was raised as a boy bearing the name ‘Nicholas’, she always knew from a young age that she was drawn to the feminine gender.
At his very first physical education class, the young Nicholas joined the girls’ line and insisted on putting on shorts with side-cuts.
