I am so excited to share that I am so honored to be part of the @ESPN Body Issue! I have always admired the purpose behind the issue which is to celebrate the human form. I was a 19 year old girl who was insecure about her new legs and new scars.  Back then I could not have imagined I would ever get a chance to be part of something like this. I now have become a confident woman who is proud of each of those scars and imperfections, and the long journey they represent.  By participating in this pictorial, my hope is to inspire others to appreciate and respect the body they are in because I have learned that what makes you unique is what makes you beautiful.  @espnmag #bodyissue #espnbody
