This Supermodel Is Changing The Way We Talk About Body Image | Ashley Graham

On this episode of On Purpose, I sat down with Supermodel, designer, and barrier-breaking body activist Ashley Graham. Ashley opens up about how she went from hating her body to loving it and making it her purpose to encourage others to do the same. She discusses how your words become your truth and why it’s so important to stop negative self-talk. She dives into how exactly we can start doing that. She also answers the internet’s most asked relationship questions and shares more about her own journey with her husband. I learned so much from this conversation and I know you will too!

Hi, it’s Jay! I’d love to keep in touch. Add me on Messenger and you’ll be the first to know about my latest podcast episodes, free courses, and BIG announcements every week! Click here:

It would mean so much to me if you subscribe to my YouTube Channel!



The term build it and it will come is false… BE IT and it will come! My name is Wil aka Hollywood Wil and I have been down, confused, depressed, lost, and didn’t know which way was up. Believe it or not watching Jay and other motivational speakers helped me a great deal. If you are not comfortable enough to talk just start watching videos until you are comfortable enough to talk to someone.

I hope you enjoy not only the videos but my entire Vlog 🙂


  1. Hi Jay! Podcasts and Videos are so Informative, Educational, and simply life changing. I learnt so much, from just watching your tape, it's ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!!! Please tell me where can I purchase your books, Videos and Podcasts from, you just don't see these books in my Country's bookstores?
    Jay, how can I Invite you to one of my Conferences, here in THE BAHAMAS, as a Guest or a MV Speaker? Please read this Message, and Contact me. Thank you🇧🇸

  2. I wish I would’ve been told about words when I was young. They do matter… but you know what? I have a daughter and I’m grateful I’ll be able to tell and show her!

  3. Omg! Thank you, for this awesome video! It is so interesting. I still have like 35 min to finish watching . I just wanted to share and how Jay always has great content, awesome life changing stories. I love the way Ashley expresses herself and how open she is about her whole life journey. .¸.•*´¨✿.•`✿ She is BOLD, BEAUTIFUL, BRILLIANT, WORTHY & LOVED! ♡

  4. I made that mistake with my girls. I spent all their lives telling them how beautiful they are while constantly complaining about my own looks and body. They cannot see their beauty. Let's hope they don't make my mistakes.

  5. I don’t understand what’s wrong with taking care about your health?

    Being overweight isn’t healthy.
    Being obese can cause diabetes type 2 and other health issues.

    I understand that people who have no willpower to lose weight are happy to hear her say all this.
    But honestly?

    Taking care of your health has nothing to do with body shaming.
