Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
I kicked off 2018 with the goal of losing a few kilos to look better in my clothes, like most ladies do. But as I started dropping the kilos, my goals started shifting. With the motivation and encouragement received from my Trainer at Wellness Evolution, I dropped 15% body fat. I learned so much about myself in the last 7 months, and how healthier eating habits and proper exercise can change you from the inside out. I was the girl who thought “I’d never look like that!” But now I want to encourage women to stay true to themselves and achieve great things, one step and one goal at a time.
Why do you think you’re the USN Face of Fitness?
My view of the USN Face of Fitness would’ve been the perfect lady, with the perfect physique, who works out for a living 24/7 and eats lettuce 6 times a day. But today, now that I am a bit more educated about nutrition, I think that the ordinary woman, housewife, career woman or mom who makes time in her busy day to look after her own needs, body and health and better herself daily to reach her own goals, is an absolutely amazing achievement. I still have a long way to go, but I have covered more ground than I could’ve imagined on my fitness journey. I want to be the face for ordinary women out there and let them know that with the right motivation, training and supplements, they too can reach the goals that once seemed unreachable.
