The Net Worth of Maria Doroshina
How rich is Maria Doroshina? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned largely through a successful career as a fitness model. She’s also worked a variety of other jobs, and plans to pursue a career in law in the future. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Maria grew up in Russia but very few details are available about her family, childhood, and even her education. During her teenage years, her family decided to move from Russia to Florida, and this is where she continued her education, leading her to become more knowledgeable about the American/English language as well as US culture. After completing her education, she took up various simple jobs including working IN a grocery store to make ends meet.
She was saving up money to eventually study for a degree in law, and during this time she was highly active on social media websites such as Instagram, a photo and video-sharing social networking service owned by Facebook, which allows users to post photos and videos on the service which can be edited through filters and organized, then shared publicly or privately. Since beginning in 2010, the website has gained a lot of popularity and has over 800 million users. The site has been praised for its influence, though also criticized for its policy changes.
Doroshina made sure to keep herself in shape, and is a big fan of fitness and maintaining her physical look. She uploaded regularly on Instagram, and soon her attractive photos would gain the attention of many. Her followership started increasing significantly, and her online exposure has led her to numerous fitness modelling opportunities – one of the biggest was an endorsement from the supplement company Shredz, as the company is focused on bodybuilding and weight loss, selling products for women, and she has been made a model for the company.
The company also provides workout programs and bodybuilding supplements for men, depending on their fitness goals. For these various companies that contacted her, she started making sponsored posts for them, which led to her being paid, and so increasing her net worth significantly. She is also featured in those companies’ own social media accounts, which in turn increased her popularity even more. Aside from going to the gym, she mentions that she loves doing various physical sporting activities, enjoying swimming and soccer in particular. She also mentioned that physical education is her favorite class.

He became the youngest player to score a goal since the 1967 NHL expansion, at the age of 18 years and 31 days against the Dallas Stars. He was named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy during a successful 2015 to 2016 season, which saw him gain a six-year contract extension worth $35.4 million.
