Elizabeth Pipko isn’t your typical Instagram model. At the age of 20, this brunette beauty is already something of a triple-threat: an accomplished model who’s appeared in publications like Sports Illustrated and FHM; a Harvard student who published a book of poetry at 17, with plans to publish two more; and a dedicated competitive skater who’s training for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.
As it turns out, her experience on the ice is partially to thank for her success as a model, and vice versa. “When I started modeling, I think it was everything I learned in skating about believing in myself and just being a competitor that helped me through a lot of things in modeling that no one knows models deal with,” she told HNHN in 2015. “And same with modeling — it helped me feel beautiful and learn my body and all these things that definitely help on the ice.”
