Jump to Fame
First, she had to stay at a Culture Camp in Boston. There were about 10 other "Kiwis". There she found out her host family lived near Grand Rapids, Michigan. On her trip, she discovered several words were different in the US than in New Zealand and Australia. For example, flip flops were known as jandals and the boot of the car in Oceania is called the trunk here in the US. While in the US, Kristina tried and saw many new things such as frozen yogurt, chipmunks, and she got her first iPhone. As soon as she set it up, she downloaded several photo sharing apps and there she sky rocketed to fame. A couple days after she posted a drawing she gained a following of thousands. To this day, she regularly posts drawings, even with a hectic schedule touring the globe.
