The 27-year-old is celebrated as the magazine’s ‘worst model’
In 2016, when Hunter McGrady looked at the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit at the age of 18, he called the odds “the worst model”. But Star insisted that she doesn’t feel like a pinup every day.
“People often ask me, ‘What’s the secret of confidence, what’s the formula?” “McGrady asked for his new cover story with his magazine Story + rain Released on Friday. “There are none. I still have bad days. To be quite honest, today was one of them. Yesterday was one of them, where all you want to do is get around, and you don’t work on those things. Want to do is to do. You don’t feel very good about yourself. “
“Okay for those days,” the 27-year-old continued. “I know that it doesn’t define who I am and that faith is a journey. I always say, ‘Rome was not built in a day, nor confidence.’ You are going away from it forever, but something beautiful is going to happen. “
McGrady said that his family never made him feel isolated at any point in his life. In fact, she was encouraged to embrace who she was, no matter her size.
Various models involved in the sport appeared in the examination of model MCGRADY, who showed the ‘QUANTANTINE body’ in INSTAGRAM.
“My mom never made my body an issue. Never”, McGrady told the outlet. “She Always celebrated it. She is from Iceland. With whom are we very comfortable in our bodies. She Always used to say, and still do, ‘It is boring to talk about your body and your weight. This is the least interesting thing. This is the least interesting thing about you. ‘That’s the mindset I’ve grown up with. Thank God. “
McGrady told the magazine’s founder and editor-in-chief Tamara Rapa On a recent podcast When it comes to introducing plus-size models, the fashion industry has a long way to go.
“As a plus-size model – you have to demand equal treatment and that’s what I think [is] Hardest about it, “she explained.” You have to speak very loudly because you know whether we like it or not, things are changing but at a very slow pace. So, you know, you have to make your place in this industry. “
Back in 2020, McGrady told Granthshala News that people still have misconceptions about plus-size models.
“A lot of people think that [plus-sized models] They are able to eat whatever they want, “she said at the time.” They do not work outside. They sit at home and have fun. This is not the case at all. I work with my trainer, and I train daily. For so long people have equaled a great size for being unwell. The truth of the matter is that I am healthier than ever in my life. This is a stigma that needs to change. “
McGrady said that she is not only grateful for her body, but she refuses to change herself for any designer.
“I cling to my guns,” he said. “I am who I am, and I am not changing for anyone. But the pressure is out there. It cannot be said for me personally, but you see it on social media, television and magazine advertisements. I Really hopeful. He changes. “
