The size 18 supermodel is blazing a trail as a vocal body activist and her healthy lifestyle is nothing short of inspirational and knows the influence she wields and empowers with her top ten tips

 1. “I really believe that women need to start looking up to other women, not for their exterior but for their interior and what they’re doing in the world. Be you, be your own individual.”
 2. “There are also women who are getting thinner and thinner. I don’t promote anorexia or obesity. I promote health. And healthy at whatever size your body needs to be.”
 
3. “The plus size fashion industry actually starts at a US 8 and goes up to a US 16. So basically what I’m saying is that the majority of this room right now is considered plus size. How does that make you feel to be labelled?”
 
4. “The woman I looked up to the most was my mother. She told me I was beautiful and she never devalued herself, so why would I? She told me and taught me that true beauty comes from within and that validation and self worth must also come from within.”
5. “If I dressed for others I would be a miserable person.”
 6. “It’s about loving who you are. If you don’t love who you are, you are never going to feel 100 percent satisfied in life. It all starts with you. If you don’t love you, nobody else is going to be able to.”
 7. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself, ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards.”
 8. “Put on a swimsuit, look in the mirror and tell yourself 100 times that you love yourself and you feel great. When you feel confident, it shows and it’s contagious.”
 9. “I am the oldest of three girls, so I don’t take being a role model lightly. When making decisions along the way in my career, I’m thinking about these young girls and honestly I’m just so happy they have a voice finally.”
 
 10. “Sexy is a state of mind.”

Think she speaks such common sense much of which many of us should take on board
