Lena’s life has been ridden with challenges—from growing up under the Communist regime in Ukraine, where she trained to be an Olympic gymnast and suffered side effects from the radioactive Chernobyl blast, to living with two chronic illnesses. In spite of the many struggles she encountered, she never gave up and continued to move through the world with almost superhuman perseverance. Along the way, Lena found love, solace in fashion, and grew her Instagram account (@panthere_instyle), which started out as an escape, to over 4 million followers. 
Today, she is an advocate for those with hidden illnesses and an inspiration for living fully, even when the journey gets tough.
This is her story.
