Former 90 Day Fiancé franchise star Alina Johnston is a creative individual who sells her art on Etsy. TLC viewers may remember the Russian native from 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 3, during which she appeared alongside her American partner, Steven Johnston. The couple’s journey began when they met on a language exchange website to learn each other’s native tongue. One thing led to another, and the two appeared on 90 Day Fiancé, hoping to marry each other. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as smoothly as Alina and Steven expected.
The couple faced several problems during their season, which included a cheating scandal. While the Mormon man wanted his Russian fiancée to convert to his religion, Alina just wanted him to stop being a liar and practice honesty. Eventually, Steven dropped a bombshell when he admitted to his hypocrisy and revealed he had already slept with multiple women. He also confessed to hooking up with someone while being in a long-distance relationship with Alina. Most 90 Day Fiancé viewers were sure this revelation would end this young couple’s relationship. However, Alina shocked everyone by forgiving her American beau and getting married to him.
In 2022, the couple seems happy and in more love than ever. They’re also thriving in their personal journeys and professional careers. Recently, a 90 Day Fiancé fan asked Alina what job she has been doing after her appearance on 90 Day Fiancé, to which she answered, “Managing my Etsy shop.” According to Alina’s Instagram bio, she has become a “Digital illustrator” and works independently on her online store, www.alinaotherway.com. The young artist’s website has a shop where she sells paintings, a section where she takes custom portrait requests and a button that leads to her Cameo.
Alina also discussed her new creative gig in a previous Instagram Story, where she introduced the unique idea of making line art paintings. The 22-year-old reality star is now selling “minimalist custom line arts (digital) on Etsy.” She added that her custom portraits start at $10, and interested people can order them on the Etsy shop and get quick deliveries. Alina studied Asian politics before joining 90 Day Fiancé. However, she has seemingly dropped that idea and has found a career where she can follow her passion for art.
Alina gets a lot of compliments now, and the reason seems to be her genuine hard work. Last year, many 90 Day Fiancé viewers lashed out at her for asking for money through a fundraiser, but she has now removed the link to her donation page. The young artist seems super content with her work and proud of her craft. 90 Day Fiancé fans are happy to see Alina thrive in her professional life as well as enjoy new outdoor adventures with her beau.
