What are your personal fitness goals?
I am a professional bodybuilder, therefore my goal is to be in the best shape possible during my prep season, as well as my off season. I work hard to ensure that I know what I am putting in my body, knowing that I will get the much needed nutrients to fuel my body and promote a healthy lifestyle. I do not always eat the healthiest and have the odd slice of cake every now and then, but I do try to stay on a similar diet so that when I go into prep season I adjust easier and quicker which also promotes a better result. My ultimate fitness goal is to live a lifestyle that is balanced, guilt free and without any restrictions. I aspire to live life focusing on the lifestyle I live and what is good for me and the earth.. I want to live a lifestyle where I look good, but also feel good and I know I am on track for that lifestyle. I know who I am, I am proud of how far I have come after going through moments in my life that should’ve broken me. I am here because I work hard, and my goal is to show females of the world that you can work hard and feel good at the same time.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
If I were to win the Face of Fitness it would not only make my dream come true, it would push me to share my story and inspire young women who want to live a healthy lifestyle. I would use this opportunity as a voice to share my knowledge and be living evidence that you are what you choose to be. I want to live a healthy lifestyle, therefore, I will take the necessary steps to ensure that I live a healthy lifestyle and I want to be an example for women who want the same. I’ve experienced bad habits that include not eating and being too skinny, I was obsessed with what I was eating and tried to eat as little as possible, I wasn’t healthy, until my late dad showed me that being skinny isn’t always healthy and it’s because of him that I am now where I am today. I am healthy and I eat exactly what my body needs and since then, I have felt so much better. I want to use this voice and be an example of doing what I want, not allowing what others think of me to get me down and to do what makes me happy, and I want to radiate that positive energy onto other females of all ages. There is no quick fix, and I am here for the long run!
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Everybody’s different; Size, health, circumstances but everybody has 24 hours in a day. Don’t use ‘I don’t have time’ as an excuse!

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
My fitness lifestyle consists of making sure I get sufficient amounts of workouts in a week, so I try to workout between 3-4 days in a week. I also encourage myself to get 5 days of outdoor walks in in order to get my extra cardio in and also give myself some relaxation time. I love being active. Being fit and living a healthy life is my lifestyle, I enjoy working out so it doesn’t feel like I have to do something. I want to make sure I’ve pushed myself as far as I can go. My body is my temple and I want to feel fit and comfortable. I am an example of what I want my future brand to become, fit and fierce. I put my self respect first and I think that’s a vital component to a healthy lifestyle. The world isn’t going to stop and wait for me, I need to stand up and get it myself and that’s what my fitness lifestyle is all about.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am energetic, bubbly but also respectful. I love making new friends and experiencing many different things. I have loads of ambition and exactly what you see from me, is what you get! I think I would be the next Biogen Face Of Fitness as I am a walking example of self love and respect. I set goals and make sure I absolutely smash them. The Biogen Face Of Fitness needs to be someone who works hard and plays just as hard and I know I do that. I think I’d suit this role as I feel I can show not only women but men as well that you can live a lifestyle where you can eat all the good things, in moderation of course, and still look good if you put the effort and the work in. I do what I want and what feels comfortable to me,I don’t restrict myself to anything. I live a good life and I want to show girls that they can live a good life and feel good too without self-sabotaging. I feel strongly about my beliefs and stand behind what I feel is right. I strive to teach girls healthy eating habits and self love and I feel that is what the Biogen Face Of Fitness needs to do.
