Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My personal fitness goals are to see myself always looking young and taking my theatre career to cloud nine, and above. I want to avoid falling victim to some diseases which can suppress my career. I want to see many women getting involved in fitness gyms and living a healthy lifestyle. It will be my privilege to lead them to that path.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
Ignorance retards progress in life. My motto has always been to reveal to women how they could lead a fit lifestyle, by example. Most people depend on tablets in their daily lifestyle. The idea to suppress these habits is to introduce the Biogen products which they can use to maintain their good and healthy lifestyle. I am typically aware that the accessibility of such products in my community is a challenge to many. However, I intend to take the bull by its horn. Let me take these products to them, introduce them, promote them and eventually the company’s brand will spread its wings to new avenues.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Let me be me, and do my own to stay in peace, for no pain no gains.
Do what you must do.
Any noteworthy sporting or fitness achievements we should know about?
From my primary level, I have been a soccer and netball participant. I won myself some football awards and captained the netball team playing a centre position because of my speed. I was also a leader in dancing because of the energy and stamina I have that influences my peers.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
In my personality, I am a dancer and actress by practice in theater. The stage demands that as an actor /actress, one must be physically fit and healthy to keep the pace intake. I am inspired by walking distances each day to college. The distance I cover each day to college is about 9km. I set myself some time to cover that distance, always aiming to set and break my own records, when it comes to time keeping. Every day I attend dance classes where we start by exercising before the actual dance practice.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am a very enthusiastic person and very strict when it comes to following the rules and regulations. My whole life I had to practice self-discipline to avoid being involved in dodgy stuff and crime. I am very much ambitious. I am a team player and I’ve always had a voice to change people’s life. My physical appearance foretells my story. One can hardly dictate my age. I look younger than my age. In my community i am like a celebrity, as I influence many to live a healthy life.
