Being of Ukrainian origin, Irina Krushevsky, the international commercial and runway model, currently lives and works in the USA. She left Ukraine in 2013 after being accepted into one of the US universities. Her life changed completely in just a few years, and the US has become a second home to her.
Besides working as a model, Irina Krushevsky also works for one of the largest healthcare data companies in the US. This helps her successfully combine her modeling career with her major, which is in information technology and analytics.
As a model, Krushevsky has walked in New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, and Los Angeles Fashion Week. She has also had opportunities to work with brands such as Haleia, Nicole Miller, Maria Farbinni, Elie Madi, Ahmad Essa Couture to name a few.
Living in the US, Krushevsky doesn’t forget her country’s culture and traditions. She said, “My country is deeply spiritual, with a rich cultural heritage. I miss our religious and seasonal holiday traditions and large family celebrations I have been part of while growing up as a child.”
Naturally, she loves and admires her mother the most, “She had taught me that hard times could be overcome and losing battles could be won. She had taught me the most important lessons and qualities that shaped me, which I will be forever grateful for.”
As a beauty queen, Krushevsky is part of a few local charitable campaigns such as “Women Against Abuse” and ALSAC. Currently, she directs her efforts to help people in her home country. She shares her thoughts, “It is difficult to describe in words what you learn and gain by giving your time and energy to something you deeply care about. By helping another human being you are discovering new passions within yourself, gain a feeling of fulfillment, and that feeling is incredible.”
