A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do! This young lady has it all: she is as pretty as a doll, yet as powerful as a lioness.

Julia Vins, from Engels, Russia, looks extremely pretty. She has beautiful eyes, delicate skin, and a face as fragile as porcelain. But don’t be fooled by her soft looks from above her shoulders, as she has a physique as powerful as a lioness.

“I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I’m strong,” Julia said back in 2015, according to MailOnline. “Because of my facial features, people have always said I look like a doll.”

Because of her figure, she’s received the title “Muscle Barbie.”

“People know me as ‘muscle Barbie’—I like this comparison. It’s nice,” she said. “I can deadlift 180kg in training. I want to become as big as possible.”

Alluding to men who criticized her about her athleticism, she said they were “just jealous.”

“Everyone has an opinion on what I look like—they either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscly girl,” she said.

Julia, who used to be slender, started going to the gym when she was 15.

“I was a good, academic girl for so many years. I studied music, was well-read, participated in various school competitions and was skilled at art. But I never felt like I had any particular objective in life,” she said.

“I had no interest in sport but I was lost. I thought I might see if I could build some strength and confidence by weight training at the gym,” she continued.

“It did not make me strong but then I started powerlifting.”

Julia fell in love with powerlifting, and since then, she has found her life purpose.

“I loved it! I knew then that my goal was—to build muscle,” she said.

“I’m no ordinary doll. I hope everyone finds their true calling in life like I did,” she added.
