Feature Friday: Size-Inclusive Model Hunter McGrady


Today's Feature Friday is model Hunter McGrady who is the special guest at next weeks Realize Your Beauty day that will be held at BALANCE! 

Hunter is a body positive advocate who uses her platform as a model to help change the worlds perception of what is beautiful. Hunter is a rookie in this years Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit issue and made history by being the curviest model to ever be featured in Sport's Illustrated in 2017! Hunter was also featured in the "In Her Own Words" photo project where she was photographed with the self-chosen words including worthy, fearless & confident painted on her body. She proudly shared this photo and inspiringly shared with her followers "I am no longer bound by the chains that society has put on me to fit a certain mold that has been so confining and brainwashing." 

In 2017, Hunter took her advocacy to social media launching the #AllWorthy hashtag campaign to encourage others to realize they are worthy just as they are! 

Hunter is also passionate about changing the conversation in the modeling industry by encouraging the use of the term size-inclusive rather than plus-size. Hunter said in a recent interview  that the biggest and best message she can promote, is inclusivity.
