Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Camille Kostek is no stranger to flaunting her famous curves in different pictures and videos and Friday afternoon was no exception as the 26-year-old model posted a video wherein she exposed lots of skin.
Wearing a red, high-cut thong swimsuit, Camille struck some sultry poses while posing against the beautiful backdrop of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. She wrote a very long caption, expressing her feelings of joy after being handed over her Rookie suit from Sports Illustrated. For those who don’t know, Camille Kostek has been named as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue rookie along with fellow model Hailey Kalil for 2019 — a moment of pride that Camille had been waiting for her entire life.
In her long caption, Camille, who also gained popularity as the girlfriend of New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski, wrote that the photoshoot as a Rookie reminded her that one must never stop working toward their goals and things that they love.
And although it’s hard to believe by looking at Camille’s sexy body, the model shared that she had to face many rejections from different modelling agencies because they didn’t deem her body to be model-like. Yet, through her perseverance, she was finally accepted by Sports Illustrated which allowed her to feel comfortable in her body and perform to the best of her abilities.

Kangaroo Island. South Australia. Last shot of the day. Moments after being handed my ROOKIE suit from Sports Illustrated Swim. The feeling I had in this moment is a reminder to work for what you love. So much rejection led me here, so many critics on my body, so many reasons to doubt but the will to keep going got me to this moment. The feeling of forgetting things that constantly worry you, the feeling of forgetting the day and time, that euphoric feeling that takes over your body is a feeling I hope you all experience because it makes life feel so good and REAL. This is just a moment in time that happened to be captured that I can always be taken back to by simply watching. I share these feelings because my hope is that you get to a place of euphoria. I want you to live in the NOW, worry less, leave fear behind and open your mind to endless possibilities that the world has to offer. And if you’ve had a feeling so larger than life share yours with me below!!! #SpreadJoy #SpreadLove @si_swimsuit
And the model not only provided a glimpse of her journey to her fans in the caption but also wished for everyone else to realize their dreams.

I got this really crazy overwhelming feeling of excitement out of no where and remembered I am smack dab in the middle of experiencing and living a dream of mine. This euphoric feeling can’t be shook. Amongst all, I’m living this model dream of mine in the shape that I feel most myself in. The shape and size that had worked against me in the industry for years, was the same body I got to rock in my @si_swimsuit debut ???? I’m going to continue standing tall and posing proud for my girls to embody all that they are ???? We are all capable of truly anything and I’m a firm believer that if you hustle with heart your timing will all make sense ????♂️ . Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018
