I’ll never forget admiring cover stars on Nylon and thinking to myself. “One day Hayley, just be patient”. I specifically remember opening up a copy in middle school and seeing Lily Allen who was 26 at the time. I thought to myself, well maybe when I’m 26 I’ll be able to love myself and be who I truly I am. I just have to survive until then.
To all of you, I encourage you to be yourself NOW. LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE NOW.
It is an honor to be on the first pride issue and cover “girl” for nylonmag. THANK YOU NYLON FOR BELIEVING IN ME. DREAMS DO COME TRUE.
