“I didn’t really aspire to be a swimsuit model,” the former Marshall University volleyball player recently told The Post. “I did some modeling when I was younger, and I loved going to the beach and taking pictures.”
“I love Sports Illustrated and being an athlete, and also doing what I do now, I thought it was a great opportunity for me,” “I love their brand and how they empower all body types and all women.”
Kayla even made a pitch to Sports Illustrated on Instagram to get the magazine to notice her.
“It’s my dream to be a part of the SI family. The women on the pages EMPOWER other women. We need more of that!!! @si_swimsuit @mj_day & the rest of the team, thank you for this opportunity! Everyone please help me out & tag @si_swimsuit in the comments!!”
Simmons hasn’t been featured on Sports Illustrated yet but has shown how to rock a bathing suit in her latest viral Instagram video.
