This moment was part of a busy week for Dunne, who graced the October cover of Sports Illustrated alongside LSU basketball star Angel Reese. Inside the magazine, Dunne opened up about her gymnastics journey and her social media presence.
In her own words, Dunne addressed the misconceptions about her work: “People definitely discredit what I do. People need to understand that I’ve worked for everything I’ve earned. I’ve spent years building an audience, and brands pay me for what they believe is worth the reach of the demographic that I offer.”
