Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My personal goal is to continue to thrive in the fitness industry, to work harder and get professional recognition. I wish to inspire the young and old, to live healthily and to create a community where I can share ideas and plans. To also have open fitness discussions and hopefully write a book about fitness that will continue to inspire many generations to come.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I would love the opportunity to inspire others to follow their dreams. I understand and respect that every woman is different, yet with health and fitness there can be a common ground. As an ambassador, I would use Biogen as that inclusive platform. I would create content for the Biogen brand, such as group classes and demonstrate healthy recipes that would make supplementation fun and interesting. I would represent Biogen at various events and over various social media platforms.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
If you’ve ever fallen down and lost your spark, rise up as the whole damn fire!
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
Along with daily cardio (usually dancing like a mad woman at home), I train 6 times a week and I love lifting weights, both at home and in the gym. I also enjoy hosting and taking part in online training sessions, be it dance cardio or more intense HIIT. I follow a healthy eating plan which includes all sorts of yummy healthy treats so cravings aren’t even a thing! I also indulge in a cheat meal when I reach a weekly goal, just to balance my diet and reward myself.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
As a survivor of an assault, I felt as if I lost my worth and I stopped liking what I saw in the mirror. Bodybuilding and fitness changed that for me. All women deserve to feel the way I feel about myself now. Not only did I rebuild my body but I rebuilt my self image and worth too. I am a reflection of any and every woman, including those who have lost their way or self worth.
I am a representation that one is not a product of circumstances or events, and not simply a label. I am who I am because I choose to be.
