She had the world buzzing after her “normal” bikini body hit the stage during The Miss USA competition, and we sat down with Miss Indiana, Mekayla Diehl to talk about being America’s newest role model. Mekayla told us that she’s still in disbelief over all the support. The other contestants have also reached out but are all in agreement that the use of the word “normal” has gotten out of hand. As for what’s next for Mekayla? She says, “I’ve always wanted to be a role model, that’s the reason I entered pageantry. I wasn’t expecting that I’d be advocating so strongly for body image, but I’m excited to take off with this.” We can’t wait to watch Mekayla continue to inspire.
