When a lot of people think of a model they think of a size 2 but Ashley Graham is making us all change the way we think. Ashley Graham announced last week that she will be in a spread in Sports Illustrated but not only that she is on one of three covers for this months issue! That’s amazing!

She posted on her Instagram yesterday her cover and I have to say she slayed! She captioned her post with

“Truly speechless!!! This cover is for every woman who felt like she wasn’t beautiful enough because of her size. You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to. Thank you so much to the entire @si_swimsuit team! I’m so excited to be a part of your family. I love you all!!! #siswim #beautybeyondsize”

She is on one of three covers for this month along side Ronda Rousey and Haily Clauson.

But congratulations to Ashley Graham for making history, knocking down barriers and showing the world that you should embrace and love you for who you are!
