Tell us more about yourself

What are your personal fitness goals?

To do well in this competition, even if I inspire only one girl through my journey that would be a job well done for me. With my own fitness journey lots of girls have asked for my advice, so I would like to complete my personal trainer studies as soon as possible so that I have the proper knowledge to help guide them reach their own individual goals.

How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?

I love encouraging others to feel good about themselves, whether it’s giving a complement , making them laugh , listening or giving a word of advice. I love motivating others to be the best version of themselves. I love everything about healthy living and that’s exactly what this competition is about. It would be an absolute honour & privilege to be associated with the brands on board.

What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

” Be Consistently Persistent “

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

I’ve always been on crash diets to lose weight , as soon as I looked at pizza I would pick it back up again. I decided it was time for a change. I started listening to my body, added weight training and eating the right food. I feel much happier, healthier & stronger …oh & I’m even eating that pizza now & the weight stays off !!

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

I love all the brands on board so it will be easy for me to promote full heartedly and with a positive attitude. I’m someone that others will be able to relate to. I’m goal driven, hard working and definitely a people’s person. I truly believe that I have the characteristics to be the winner of the Biogen Face of Fitness 2020. It would be an absolute dream come true.
