Sixtine Inspires With New Podcast Feature on Body Neutrality

The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie is always using her platform for good.

Sixtine, a 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie, recently joined the Raw Intentions podcast for a chat on all things body image, dating expectations, modeling and more. 

On Jan. 9, the pod’s official Instagram account shared a snippet from host Sarah Smyth’s meaningful conversation with the model that really struck a chord with us.

“I care for my body not because I want my stomach to be flat, but because I need to be able to keep up, you know? I want to be able to be the friend who gets invited on the hike, even if I really don’t like hiking,” Sixtine stated. “And just focus on how like I’m very lucky in that I have a very capable body and I’m allowed to do things and I can go dancing with my friends or, you know, go on all these trips and travel, and that’s because I take care of my body and appreciate it for what it does, rather than what it looks like.”

The TikTok influencer regularly uses her platform to express her thoughts on the subject of body neutrality, but each and every time we hear Sixtine speak out on the matter, we’re left inspired. 

“appreciating my body for what it does, rather than what it looks like. MIC DROP. so many mic drop moments throughout our episode w @sixtinerouyre , and i just know y’all are going to LOVEEE it,” the podcast brand wrote alongside the IG promo.
