Kristina Menissov has got numerous talents as well as being a multi-ethnic. She is a Half Kazakhstan and Half Ethiopian.

She was the main model from Tyga’s music video “Ibiza” released her first single “Take Over LA” on all digital platforms. She has also been invited to Models Talk Episode and has done several commercials and print campaigns.
Establishing a Brand
Kristina says that modeling was the main thing that made her known. She started it with local designers and then started being serious on her social media platform. She got supportive followers who were encouraging her to apply to agencies in Los Angeles. Her efforts paid and she got signed. She advanced on modeling and achieved greater success in the realm of modeling. She is, however, shifting to her passion – singing.
Taking Over LA
As of July 9th Kristina Menissov has launched her new song. “Taking Over LA” which can be found and listened to on Apple Music, Spotify & more! “I am beyond excited to announce that my song is life finally” – Kristina Menissov
As usual, nothing comes easy. In the modeling industry, she faced significant obstacles since she was not able to fit in any category of the looks. She says that the best way she could fit was to create her own brand. In that, the companies would book her, not because she fits in any category but because she was her own brand.
The best thing that Kristina Menissov did, and advises upcoming models to do is to create her own brand. That is the right path. She says. Secondly, she says that doing what you are passionate about is the best thing in any business or venture. She could hardly give up because she loved modeling. “It is all about passion, dedication, and commitment.” She says.
Advice to the starters
“Very simple,” she starts, “stop comparing yourself with others.” She advises starting models to be themselves and be honest with whatever they are doing. “Ask yourself if you are doing 100% of what you could have done today. But the key is, to be honest with yourself.” She ends by stressing the need for honesty.
