Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
To be both physically and mentally healthy – I believe you can’t have one without the other. My goal is to be an inspiration to others to get aboard the healthy lifestyle train with me. I find it both humbling and an honour to be able to inspire others to live their best lives, and that’s what I aim to do with my fitness journey.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I feel like I am blessed to be able to inspire women with my own personal journey. Last year I was classed as being on the cusp of obese. Since then, I have made a decision to take control of my life and have lost 15kg. I am relatable and can show people the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and that they can also do it with the right support and motivation behind them. I have also suffered through depression, which drives my mental health awareness efforts. I believe I will bring a fire to the Biogen Face of Fitness ambassadorship position because I have been where most women are struggling on their fitness journeys. I am relatable, I am dedicated and I am devoted to my healthy lifestyle.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
Over the past year, I have realised the importance of making time for yourself. Running, journalling, gyming, meditating, visualising, sleeping, and eating healthily are priorities in my life. Since my transformation journey began, I have developed a healthy routine which I stick to religiously.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am so passionate about my health that I feel like I would bring so much to the Face of Fitness table. I am so in love with my life right now and truly want to share this incredible experience with everyone. I want to show everyone that you can reach your goals and you can live the life you want to if you just believe in yourself.
