Athleticism has always been a trait adored by society. But not enough attention has been given to talented female athletes.

Jacey Hinton is no exception. The athlete, who has excelled in swimming, has used her success with sport to branch out into entrepreneurship and modeling. This has allowed Hinton the ability to develop a personal brand that is identifiable by her followers. 

Success as an athlete

This experience would inspire her to become a water safety advocate and provide swimming lessons to under-resourced communities. Hinton was born with a natural inclination towards athleticism but has honed her craft through years of dedication and training. She has been an active and successful athlete for many years and began competing from a young age. In her teenage years, she moved to Massachusetts where she would continue both her swimming and modeling careers. Then, the Boston Globe and Boston Herald named her to the All Scholastic Team. This was likely the result of her breaking multiple records and becoming the state champion. In addition to these accomplishments, she would also become a USA Swimming Academic All American and USA Today named her Athlete of the Year in Massachusetts for Swimming.

Under this representation, she appeared in an international athletic brand campaign. Hinton is continuing her modeling career now that she is in Miami and is having a great deal of success.
