You may recognize Tess Holliday from, oh, everywhere. In the last year, Tess has gone from Instagram sensation to international celebrity to (according to People) the world's first size 22
supermodel. Most of all, she is one of our most powerful and vibrant icons of body positivity. She takes no bullshit and she gives none, either. Tess is a role model, indeed, but she's an
individual who won't bend to anybody's definition of what a role model should be. That's what makes her such a vital one.
