"I want to come away with the fact that it's okay to be comfortable in your body. I've never worn a thong before, and the second I stepped out there, I was comfortable. And what I would like for people to come away with is - first of all, I'm not a size two - and it's okay to look good, to feel good.
And I'm strong - it's okay to look strong and to be sexy and to be a woman and to be unbreakable and to be all those things. I really want to have that influence for people out there that. You know, that has my body type and just be like, 'You know what? I look good too. I want to feel good.'
Women need to be celebrated, and they need to embrace what you look like and not from the outside, but from the inside. So every time I step out there and that swimsuit, I'm really feeling myself from the inside. I'm feeling my inner beauty and it's going, and it's showing in my poses and in everything.
So everything that I'm feeling is coming from the inside, and I think that confidence is something that I would love for everyone to have."
