Women’s Health announced the winner of its first-ever “Ultimate Game Changer” reader contest. Twenty-six-year-old reader Emily Núñez Cavness, a U.S. Army Officer and cofounder of socially responsible fashion brand, Sword & Plough, appears on subscriber covers of the magazine’s October 2016 issue.

Cavness currently serves as a U.S. Army Captain in the 10th Special Forces Group. She also served in Kandahar, Afghanistan with the 4th Engineer Battalion. She made history as one of the first 100 women to try out for the infamously rigorous pre-Ranger School. Merging this passion with her military background, Cavness cofounded Sword & Plough, which transforms military surplus into stylish and functional bags made in the U.S. by veteran-owned or operated manufacturers.
