Kate Bock was photographed in Belize for SI Swimsuit 2022.
"I'm shooting Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2022 and it's my 10th year. I mean, I think making it to a decade with this brand in particular is pretty epic. It's kind of wild to realize I've really grown up with these people and they've been in my life for so long and I see them so many times a year and we do so many things together. So I really feel like I'm the luckiest person that I get to do this every year.
Why do I keep coming back? Because why wouldn't I? This is the best job in the world. Yesterday I got to swim with sharks and go zip lining, and today I'm shooting all over Belize. I'm with some of my favorite people, I get to feel like my best self and I love supporting a brand that I respect so much.
I'm grateful for so many things. I really dreamed of being in this magazine when I was young and I feel so grateful that I got do it at all, and then I had my cover, and then now I've been here for 10 years, which is just crazy that I'm one of those ones that has been here the whole time and got to grow with the brand and see the brand evolve and see the changes throughout the years and got to kind of enjoy all of it as it happens."
