Camille Kostek is a self-love queen. The six-time SI Swimsuit model, who landed on the cover of the 2019 issue as a rookie after co-winning the brand’s Swim Search open casting call, has been on social media for a long time. And, as everyone knows, growing your following comes with its fair share of internet trolls, hate comments and general negativity from the public.

Kostek has picked up some tips and tricks to deal with it, but that’s not to say she doesn’t occasionally let some words get to her. The 31-year-old is human, after all, and being a work in progress means constantly reassuring yourself and being your own biggest cheerleader.

“It gets old. You get tired of it,” Kostek said of the haters during SI Swimsuit’s “Be You Women’s Empowerment Series” panel presented by Maybelline at the University of Central Florida on Sept. 28. “You just get to a point where you decide you’re above that. You’re like, ‘I’m the prize.’ Any time you can shift your perspective, not just in a relationship but in yourself, that’s one of the biggest turning points. Theres so many external forces in the workplace, in school, on social media, from peers or people you don’t know that are trying to tell you who you are and who you need to be. Why would you even want to be hard on yourself?”

The former NFL cheerleader loves her daily affirmations and is in an era of manifestation right now. She knows that “self-love is a journey” and is working on loving every part of herself every day.

The three mantras the Connecticut native repeats on a daily basis are as follows:

  1. “You’re my best friend. I love you. I’m going to take care of you.”
  2. “I love you, mind. I love you, heart.”
  3. “What’s meant for me will not pass me.”
