Nikita Nguyen Biography
Nikita Nguyen, who was born on January 31, 1996, is a YouTuber, make-up artist, and model who goes by the name Nikita Dragun in the business world.
Nikita Nguyen was born in Belgium, although she completed her secondary education in the state of Virginia in the United States.
She is of Vietnamese and Mexican ancestry, and when she was a teenager, she revealed that she identifies as a trans woman.
She has discussed her transition in an honest and open manner in a number of videos that Nguyen has uploaded on YouTube.
In February of 2013, Nguyen became a member of YouTube. In her statement, “Around that time, I started to obtain a few brand deals here and there… It was also around that time that I made the decision to begin pursuing Instagram and YouTube seriously.” She revealed her identity as a transgender woman in 2015, at which point she was already residing in the city of Los Angeles. She has over 3.54 million subscribers on YouTube, 9 million followers on Instagram, and 14.5 million followers on TikTok as of the month of October 2021.
Nguyen posted a video of herself wearing lingerie on Twitter as a response to comments made by Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer for L Brands, who stated that transgender individuals should not be allowed to participate in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since “the show is a fantasy.” Nguyen asserts, in the aforementioned tweet, that trans women are, in fact, able to communicate imagination.
In March of 2019, she said that she would be launching a makeup line called Dragun Beauty.
The cosmetics line caters not just to the general public but also to members of the transgender community in addition to the mainstream market. One of the reasons mentioned for Nikita’s decision to launch her company independently was the fact that all of the products are vegan and free from any form of animal testing.  Nguyen was asked about her makeup brand during an interview that took place on the LGBT radio network Channel Q in the month of June 2019. During the discussion, she acknowledged her experience as a transgender woman creating her brand as the inspiration behind Dragun Beauty and its goods.
It was revealed in September 2019 that Nikita would be the main character in her very own docuseries on Snapchat called “Nikita Unfiltered.” The series follows Nguyen as she navigates celebrity as a transgender woman, as well as her desire for romantic fulfillment and “a different path” in her work. The first episode of the series debuted on March 21st, 2020.
At the Hype House mansion on July 21, 2020, Nguyen threw an unexpected birthday party for the popular YouTuber Larri Merritt in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.  Internet personalities such as James Charles, Charli D’Amelio, and Dixie D’Amelio, along with a number of others, were in attendance at the party. At the time of the party, the number of COVID-19 cases in California had just overtaken the number of instances in New York. It was estimated that there were 67 people there, the majority of whom did not appear to be wearing face masks in spite of the advice made by the regional health authority. Images and videos of the event were uploaded to social media websites like Instagram. The public, including other influencers such as Elijah Daniel and Tyler Oakley, expressed their disapproval in the comments section of these posts. After the event, Merritt and a few of the other guests issued an apology. Subsequent testing revealed that residents of the Hype House did not have COVID-19.
Nguyen was taken into custody on November 7, 2022, after police in Miami Beach, Florida, claimed to have caught her spraying officers and other staff members at The Goodtime Hotel as she was wearing only her undergarments and wandering around the pool area. Officers were dispatched to the hotel after receiving a report of a person who was reportedly behaving in a “very unruly manner” and causing a disturbance there, as stated in the police report. She was taken into custody at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County with a $5,000 bond after being charged with the misdemeanor offense of disorderly conduct, the misdemeanor offense of battery, and the felony offense of battery on a police officer. Her bond was set at $5,000.
