The stunning plus-size model, Ashley Graham, has shown girls everywhere that size really doesn’t matter. Did you know that Ashley was the first size 16 model to be on the front cover of Sports Illustrated? You go girl!
But Ashley didn’t receive celebrity status that easily and she wasn’t always this confident. She struggled a lot throughout her teen modelling career and received many rejections. But she never gave up.
Fun Fact! Ashley isn’t just a plus size model, she is a “body activist”. What does that mean you ask? She wants to promote all shapes and sizes and show that there isn’t just ONE beautiful size.
Watch Ashley Graham’s motivational speech where she takes us on a short journey throughout the highs and lows of her life, the rejections and obstacles that tried to hold her back, and how she managed to rise from her low points and become the number one role model for girls everywhere!
Ignore the haters in your life because, as Ashley Graham says: “You are bold. You are brilliant, and you are beautiful. There is no other woman like you, because you are your own kind of woman.”
