Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
To become the best version of myself. I want to tone up and get more defined muscles throughout my body.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I have lost about 10kg and I feel like a completely new person. I want to inspire other girls who are in my position and show them that it is possible. Many girls have told me that my dedication and fitness journey has inspired them, so I think by being an ambassador I can reach more girls and help keep them motivated to change their lives.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
When you feel like quitting, remember why you started.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I train 6 times a week. I work out at home due to COVID-19. I feel working out from home has helped me push myself more because there is no excuse and nothing stopping me from getting up and doing it. I follow a very healthy diet that allows me to enjoy what I eat while losing weight.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am not your typical fitness girl that you see everyday. I am still a work in progress, but I think that is so important for other people to see. People need to see someone who has been through what they are going through and has made the big changes in life to get to where they want to be. Relatability is key for many people and I think I definitely have that factor.
