Anna Stupak also talks openly about how she lives with Covid's sequels

ALBANY, Calif. - Californer -- Feeling lonely without family around, Russian fitness model and bikini competitor, Anna Stupak, decided to move with her son from Miami to Europe to be closer to family.

Weeks after getting there, her entire family - made up by her son, dad and mom got the new covid virus. After 3 weeks of struggling, her mom passed away.

"I moved because covid put everything into perspective", she states. "Losing my mom to this virus was heartbreaking, made me want to give up, but I couldn't let myself do that because of my son. I had to be strong and keep on fighting".

Now, 3 months later, when things started to get back to normal, but did not quite feel like the same, she started noticing she was losing her hair:

"I went to a few different doctors, and they have 2 very distinct perspectives of what is going on. A few blame my hair loss on stress and a few says is a late effect of covid," she states.

Trying being good mom to her son and daughter to her now only support system, her dad, Anna decided to take the new challenge head on and hopefully inspire people going through the same experience:

"I feel like this is not talked about enough. Late effects have been affecting people even though they are still slow. I wish to normalize that and tell my story so people know they are not alone".

"I was always proud of my long hair, but now I have almost no hair left", she adds.

In memory of her mom, who fought until the end, and of all covid victims, Anna made a important decision:

"Next week, I will be shaving my hair off", she states. "I will not let this virus define me or make me feel weak, I will be empowered and honor everyone whose life was lost and impacted by it".
