Miss USA’s Instagram Account Proves Why She’s Our Favorite Winner Yet

Miss USA Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma represents more than just a crown. Not only did the former Boston University alum earn a B.S. in health science| but she also kept busy during her college years as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. Plus| she spearheaded a self-defense workshop at her sorority Alpha Phi that will long continue as tradition.

When we thought her ever-impressive ru00e9sumu00e9 was enough| Olivia won us over even more with her Instagram account. It’s all the things we love: body-positivity quotes| inspiring fitness shots| and a sense of humor. The newest Miss USA is the epitome of beauty and brains| and so much more.

“”The only way to reach your goals is one step at a time. Take that step!””

“”Every time I look up here I see something that makes me feel small. What a gift to be reminded how small we are on this earth but to also remember that as one spark can start a wildfire| one act of kindness can ignite a chain reaction that can better the world. So if anyone is feeling small today| remember that it’s the little things that make all the difference.””

“”I interrupt your Instagram feed for a brief moment of honesty u2014u00a0I haven’t always loved my body. At times| I hated it. As a model you are judged on your looks everyday [sic]. People don’t hesitate to point out every one of your flaws. On the same photo-shoot I heard that ‘she’s anorexic looking’ and from someone else that ‘she’s too fat to model’. For real. It’s harsh. When I started modeling at 15 I wanted to be perfect. When my agent told me to lose 3 inches off my hips (I was 5’11″” and 120 pounds). I listened. I fell into the trap and nearly destroyed my body trying to fit into someone else’s idea of what I should look like. As I physically & mentally recovered from losing too much weight and the self hatred that goes along with developing eating disordered patterns| I started to learn practices of self love. Today| I make my living as a model. I still hear feedback on ‘she’s too big’ or even ‘she’s not strong or not curvy enough’. But I no longer try to fit into the mold of what a ‘fashion model’ should look like. I embrace my curves. When I want a cookie| I eat a cookie. But I also workout hard- always challenging myself to be stronger| faster| more flexible. Today| I love my body for everything it is. I’m so grateful that my strong legs can carry me through a half marathon| that I can leg press with the best of them| that my boobs and booty get me booked on swim and lingerie campaigns year after year| that I don’t miss out on the joy of eating and celebrating with friends by starving myself. I share this because it’s important to know that we all struggle and we all have insecurities| let’s support each other and create a community of love and lifting each other up!””

A weekend of family and fitness.

On the contrary| if I have the belief that I can do it| I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.’ u2728 -Mahatma Ghandi””
