Aly Raisman is baring it all to showcase her strength both mental and physical.

Last month the gold medal-winning gymnast took the stand to speak to her infamous sexual abuser, former USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, during his trial that has sent him away to prison for 175 years.

Now she is speaking up for herself yet again. The athlete posed completely nude for the magazine with words of empowerment painted on her body like "Survivor," "Trust Yourself" and "Abuse is never okay."

Women do not have to be modest to be respected-- Live for you!

"I think everyone goes through really hard times and I've decided to be so honest about what I went through because the tough times are very hard to talk about and they are uncomfortable but they are equally as important into shaping us as the good times," Raisman told Sports Illustrated as part of its new "In Her Own Words" campaign.

The two-time Olympian was just one of the 100+ victims who was abused by Nassar when they were in the USA Gymnastics.

"Being able to express yourself and to write words on your body that mean something to you is something I've never had the opportunity to do before."
