Candice Huffine Has the Best Reaction to Her New Elle Cover

Congratulations are in order: Candice Huffine just landed a major new cover. She's one of six models gracing Elle's May 2017 issue, joining Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Jasmine Tookes, Marie Borges, and Elsa Hosk. Of course, her cover image is beyond gorgeous, but we're particularly inspired by her emotional response to the huge occasion. In an Instagram post, Huffine detailed exactly why the cover was so important to her, and she offered an encouraging message to her fans.

"I refused to be told I couldn't become what I had always imagined and committed myself to working tirelessly for the day when my size wouldn't dictate my possibility," she explained in the caption. "I hope this cover can serve as a symbol for anyone who believes they can, that they are, that they will be. If you wake up every morning and can think of nothing but your dream, follow it and never stop." Very wise words, indeed.
