Speaking at ForbesUnder 30 Summit, she divulged:

“I’ve been considered a plus-size model for the last 15 years. I’ve really been trying to chop down this tree for so long, and now finally people are hearing me.”

They are!

With over 650,000 Instagram followers, it sounds like they’re loving the body acceptance message she’s putting out!

Ash also admitted:

“I’m using my body to let other women know that imperfections are okay, that cellulite, rolls, curves, all of it, things that jiggle that ‘shouldn’t be jiggling’ are okay.”


And she’s proof that all women are beautiful, confessing:

“I was told I was never going to be on the cover of any magazine, let alone on the inside, and I did five covers alone last year, and I was in the pages of Sports Illustrated as one of the first curvy models. I didn’t let anybody just take [me] down. I think that’s something that’s important about being a disrupter in any industry.”

She clearly didn’t take “no” for an answer! She continued:

“I think what really helped me was a lot of people telling me no, because I’ve always kind of been a little bit of a rebel. My parents have told me no, I’ve had agents tell me no, and I’ve taken all those nos and I’ve turned them into yeses, and I’ve done exactly what I wanted to do.”

Look at her now! Bye, haters.

Keep doing you, Ash!!
