Since she was a little girl Kylie dreamed of being a Victorias Secret Model. She longed to be on the pages of magazines and walk in the world's most renowned runways. She pushed herself to physical and emotional limits to make her dreams come true. In 2010, all Kylie's ambitions became a reality as she was announced to be the next Victorias Secret Angel. Soon after, she found herself in a whirlwind of fame and fortune surrounding her life. Kylie began to feel empty and started to notice that young girls were looking at her as an idol to replicate themselves. She began to question herself and the intention of why she wanted to model.  Kylie became gradually insecure with herself and started to see modeling as a false portrayal of who she wanted to be. She did what most wouldn't, quit modeling and pursued the bigger things God had in mind for her. Here is what Kylie had to say when asking her more about this experience: 

ClartebyAmanda: When did you start to feel insecure about your physical appearance? What triggered you to feel that way?

Kylie Bisutti: I first began feeling insecure about my appearance in middle school. I always got teased and called anorexic by the kids at school.
ClartebyAmanda: What was your initial feeling, and Mike's response (Kylie's husband), when you won the Victorias Secret contest?
Kylie Bisutti: I couldn't believe it. I was excited and nervous about it all. Mike was happy for me but he was also sad at the same time because so many men were seeing me in lingerie.
ClartebyAmanda: What happened that made you decide modeling for Victorias Secret wasn't for you?
Kylie Bisutti: God changed my heart. He showed me that I was on a downward spiral of insecurity and loneliness. He showed me that I wasn't honoring my marriage by posing in provocative lingerie. He showed me that I wasn't promoting a healthy body image to young girls and most importantly he showed me that I was not living my life for Him.
ClartebyAmanda: What do you feel God is calling you to do in this lifetime?
Kylie Bisutti: I feel like I'm supposed to bring glory to Him in everything that I do. I feel like he has brought me through a lot so that I can tell people about his amazing love and grace. So that I can proclaim his great name!
ClartebyAmanda: What is the most impactful experience you have had since you quit Victorias Secret (that you may not have experienced if you still were a VS model)?
Kylie Bisutti: Growing closer to God.
ClartebyAmanda: What is one or more Bible verse(s) that reached you the most? Why?
Kylie Bisutti: Proverbs 31 spoke a lot into my life because I want to be a woman like the proverbs 31 woman. But just reading the bible more in general has been such a huge impact in my life. The more I read, the more I learn and the closer I draw to my savior.
