"[Chrostin's] highly relatable situations have made her every girl's best friend on Instagram."

"Chrostin . . . is a character to be reckoned with. From her obsession with snacks to her passive attention to beauty standards, Chrostin is seriously all of us just trying to (occasionally) win at life."

"De Witte's message is simple but powerful. She wants to remind everyone with her comics that it's OK to feel like you're a total mess sometimes. That's something we can all relate to."


"[Chrostin's comics are] so on point it hurts."
