One of the most outspoken voices gracing the cover of
magazines today encourages women to be their most confident
selves, recognize their personal beauty, and reach for their
highest dreams in this wise, warm, and inspiring memoir
Voluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling
professionally since the age of thirteen. Discovered at a

Studio, she is also a judge for the latest season of
America’s Next Top Model. And that’s only the beginning for
this extraordinary talent.
Ashley is leading a new generation of women breaking ground
and demolishing stereotypes, transforming our ideals about

who proves that when it comes to beauty, size is just a
number, she is the voice for the body positivity movement
today and a role model for all women—no matter their

In this collection of insightful, provocative essays
illustrated with a dozen photos, Ashley shares her
perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving—and

setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to
terms with who she is, bolster her self-confidence, and
motivates her to be her strongest, healthiest, and most
