Nikita Dragun, better known to many as Mama Dragun or Nyc Dragun, is a transgender YouTuber who became famous for her make-up tutorial videos. Since then, she has become a successful businesswoman who has launched her own Dragun Beauty line, and also a youth icon for transgender people, as she has remained very open about her transition from male to female. With her growing popularity in recent years, many people have tried to find out all they can about the half-Vietnamese and Mexican women. Read on to find out everything we know about her.
Nikita Dragun – Biography (Ethnicity)
There are contradictory reports about the exact place of birth of Nikita Dragun, which according to some publications is in Springfield, Virginia, while others say she was born in Belgium. However, they all agree that she was born on 31 January 1996 to a Vietnamese father and a Mexican mother. While the identity of her parents is not publicly known, it is known that she has three siblings: the sisters Allegrah Nguyen Capri and Taliah Nguyen Marriott and a brother named Vincarlo Nguyen.
At a very young age, Nikita is said to have felt differently, as she was closer to dressing up than anything else you would expect from a boy. In her first sports class, she is said to have lined up with the girls instead of the boys and insisted on side cuts on the shorts she wore.
Fearing being bullied, however, she was able to hide her true identity until she reached high school, where she was now more accepted by the people as she began to wear tight jeans, wear eyelashes and carry a small handbag.
After graduating high school, Nikita Dragun received a full scholarship to New York University. However, to her parents’ despair, she turned it down and went to a community college instead. Around this time she received a fake ID with the name Nicole and began attending clubs in the Washington, D.C. area, where she easily passed for a woman.
Life Before and After Trans
After entering college, Nikita Dragun, who initially thought she was gay before realizing that she was a woman trapped in a man’s body, began to gain confidence as a woman and therefore decided that it was time to make the transition from man to woman. Another problem that supposedly caused her to make the transition was that it had become uncomfortable for her to use the men’s room.
Around this time she started her YouTube channel, where she talked about various things, mainly about make-up, but not about her sexuality. This changed at the end of December 2015, however, when she released a video called “I Am Transgender” which went viral almost immediately. Through YouTube, Nikita was able to gain fame and meet other transgender people, which helped her gain self-confidence and familiarize herself with her own transition. She continued to engage her subscribers with every little detail as she documented her transition on her channel, sharing all the details about her hormone replacement therapy, genital reconstruction surgery, and much more.
Nikita Dragun’s parents are said to have been very supportive of her transition decision. Her career took off further when the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising launched her own make-up line Dragun Beauty, aimed at the trans community.

Who is Her Boyfriend?
From the articles and pictures she publishes in social media, it is clear that Nikita Dragun has been involved in numerous relationships. The model has made it a priority to always post a picture of a man she claims to be either her current boyfriend or an ex-boyfriend. One of the many people she has posted her pictures and claims to be an object is her make-up colleague and YouTuber Manny Guitierrez. His picture on her social media profile led many people to believe that the two were actually a couple, but it wasn’t long before Nikita re-published the picture of another man, putting an end to the rumor that was circulating at the time.
As at the time of writing this article, the last person to be associated with her is YouTuber Josh Levya. While it is safe to assume that this may indeed be another prank, Levya has not come forward to confirm or deny the rumors.
