 What do you love most about your body?

I love my athleticism.

What does body positivity mean to you?

It means accepting our bodies for what they are; it means not following societal norms.

Why do you think it’s important to redefine the ‘bikini body’?

It’s simple. There isn’t one body type – therefore, the ‘bikini body’ comes in all shapes and sizes. The ‘bikini body’ is not a members-only club – everyone is welcome!

What does owning your swimwear mean to you?

It means feeling confident and happy, and not worrying that my thighs touch and when I bend over, my tummy gets slight rolls. It means feeling sexy from the inside out. 

What is your body-positivity message to other women?

Self-love. We are too hard on ourselves. LOVE YOURSELF.

If you could send your body a love letter, what would you say?

You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. You are perfect in your own way – never compare yourself to anyone.
