Former volleyball star Kayla Simmons has made the transition to a full-time Instagram model.
In college, Simmons played division 1 volleyball for four years at Marshall.
After leaving college, Simmons has thrived as a social media influencer and has over 900k followers on Instagram while also launching her premium subscription site.
Simmons spoke about the transition from college athletics to full-time modeling.

“College athletics was a great experience for me, but it also taught me some valuable lessons,” said Simmons
“I was told by my school administrators that the pictures I post are inappropriate because of my body, I was even asked to delete my Instagram at one point.
“I was torn because I felt I couldn’t embrace my body and play the sport I love. I’ve since learned that you can’t let other people affect how you feel about yourself. I am who I am, & it’s okay to be confident!”
On Tuesday, a confident Simmons shared her latest beach Instagram photo, and it instantly went viral.
