Model & Body Activist Ashley Graham is the First Size 16 Model to Cover Sports Illustrated

Model  Ashley Graham is now officially the first size 16 body activist  to cover Sports Illustrated. Now, it seems crazy that this is a first right?! But onward and upward from here because this is amazing, wonderful and beautiful! Ashley says: 

I thought Sports Illustrated was taking a risk by putting a girl my size in the pages...But putting me on the cover? They aren’t just breaking barriers; they are the standard now. This is beyond epic.
I want to dedicate it to all of the women out there who never felt that they were beautiful enough, who never felt like they were skinny enough, and who never felt like they were going to be able to be represented in society like this...Because now we’re being represented.

Yes girl!
