What are your fitness goals?

I’ve always had a “curvier” body than other girls so I always felt bigger if I can say it like that, but as I got older, I’ve learnt to embrace and love my body. Because of my body type, I had to work harder than most of the other girls generally, but I believe that’s what made me the strong (not only mentally but physically) women I am today, and through that, I want to inspire other young girls out there just like me.
I want to be the best version of myself, and I’ve certainly come a long way, but I’m excited about what lies ahead for my fitness journey. Even though I am a personal trainer, I’m also only human. In 2017 I went through a really low time in my life, but I picked myself up again and came back better, stronger and more determined than ever to look my best.

This is what I do for a living, so if I can’t live it, I can’t preach it. I want to look fit and healthy throughout the year, and I believe I’m getting closer to my goal

Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?

Nothing thus far, but I hope this can be my stepping stone towards those fitness achievements!

Why do you think you’re the USN Face of Fitness?

Ever since I started my fitness journey, it’s been a dream of mine to be part of this competition. Motivating and inspiring people is what I do daily. I live for fitness, and I want to help and inspire as many women out there to help grow their love for fitness and healthy living. Actions speak louder than words and like I said if you can’t live it, you can’t preach it. The USN Face of Fitness will be the perfect platform for me to do just that. I won’t get people back to the basics of living and eating healthy, because there are so many fad diets out there everyone wants a quick fix, and I want to remind them that there is no such thing. The right way might take you a bit longer, but it will be worth it Living healthy shouldn’t feel like a chore; it should be fun.

I feel that I have come a long way not only with my fitness journey but with helping my clients with theirs. The older I get, the wiser I become, and I feel that I’m at the right place and time in my life to help more women out there.
