Ashley Graham has redefined, rearranged and reestablished the entire modeling industry. She is a queen in the modeling world, but she still faces a lot of critique for her size.

The 30-year-old plus size model says she has had to do a lot of work to stay confident amidst the negative comments she sometimes receives. Whether it’s on Instagram or Twitter, the Nebraska-born babe says daily affirmations have been her key to staying confident. Graham tells herself she is beautiful every day in order to make sure she finds her confidence from within.

Graham doesn’t get her confidence from ‘the gram,’ but rather from within herself.

“I am bold, I am brilliant and I am beautiful and I can have and do anything I want,” Graham says as she recites her affirmations for us. It just goes to show, no matter how beautiful you are, you will always face criticism!
