What are your fitness goals?

To maintain a level of fitness needed to partake in a wide range of physical activities and challenges, such as a triathlon or Spartan race, and doing so constantly to improve my physical self. This will benefit and reflect in both my mental and emotional self. I would also like to be a team leader for a group of strong women, especially moms who struggle to find the time to exercise and keep healthy. I want to be the kind of fitness model that represents fearlessness, and shows women that being physically strong is important to your overall well-being. I would also love to take my training to the next level and teach what I have learnt.

What sporting achievements should we know about?

As a junior I competed at nationals in gymnastics, placing 4th in my age category. I competed in MMA, kickboxing and Muay Thai, and won the ‘Best upcoming female fighter’ award in 2011. I have my 2nd Kyu (green and green-yellow) belts in Kendo.


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

I represent not only young women who wish to constantly better themselves, but also the busy moms who push to make time every day to keep fit and healthy, both inside and out. I’ve been an inspiration to a lot of my classmates, and to the ladies who train with me, as well as to people who saw me train throughout my pregnancy. I love a challenge, and I believe one of USN’s aims is to constantly challenge yourself, which I truly love and believe is a principle everyone should follow. I’m a strict advocate of health, I constantly read up the latest health discoveries, and love to promote a healthy living environment for all age groups.
