Being a former college athlete & growing up around sports has taught me to push myself to the limit. So here I am, chasing my @si_swimsuit dream! 😬 College athletics was a great experience for me, but it also taught me some valuable lessons. I was told by my school administrators that the pictures I post are inappropriate because of my body, I was even asked to delete my Instagram at one point. I was torn bc I felt I couldn’t embrace my body & play the sport I love. I’ve since learned that you can’t let other people affect how you feel about yourself. I am who I am, & it’s okay to be confident! It’s my dream to be a part of the SI family. The women on the pages EMPOWER other women. We need more of that!!! @si_swimsuit @mj_day & the rest of the team, thank you for this opportunity! ❤️ Everyone please help me out & tag @si_swimsuit in the comments!! #siswimsearch Song: Ocean Eyes- Billie Eilish

There are a few ways to be considered for the SI swimsuit issue. You can submit a 60-second video of yourself on Instagram by tagging @si_swimsuit and using the hasthag #SISwimSearch.  

That’s the way to go, and we really enjoyed seeing Kayla’s submission.
