These words are supposed to represent what these women want to say about themselves. "I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model", she told Sports Illustrated.

"I just can't wait to be a businesswoman like them", she gushes.

"THANK YOU [Sports Illustrated] for having me on your COVER", she wrote in the caption of a post featuring her stunning photo.

"She owned every single second of her shoot", MJ continued.

The 25-year-old actress, who starred romantic comedy The Other Woman, took a risk during her latest shoot in Aruba by standing on a rock in the sea on what appeared to be a stormy day.

Danielle Herrington was an SI Swim rookie a year ago. She got her high-school diploma, found work as a nanny and, finally, let herself eat. "My immediate reaction was how grateful I was to had my family there", she told the magazine.

Her first big photo shoot was for the magazine's swimsuit issue previous year as part of the "rookie" class. SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day called Herrington a "natural brand ambassador".

Banks appeared on the cover in 1997 and the singer Beyonce Knowles appeared on it in 2005, Sports Illustrated said.

After winning over SI fans a year ago, with her first professional shoot ever, it's clear that the Compton, Calif. native is no rookie, making history as the third black woman to earn the honor, alongside Tyra Banks and Beyoncé.

In light of the #MeToo movement, Sports Illustrated editors attempted to change the narrative for this year's issue. Herrington commented on her new cover, saying that it was "the best day of my life". In September, she landed her first major runway moment, walking in Phillip Plein's Spring 2017 show for New York Fashion Week. 'She had an enthusiasm and effervescence about her - I felt like I was meeting her for the first time'. Though she is not this year's cover girl, the 30-year-old author made sure that she caught fire as she posed confidently for the shoot. She bravely the US Olympic Committee on several occasions, and even attended Nassar's sentencing hearing to read her impact statement in person.

She also shared an inspiring message on her Instagram when revealing her cover.
