Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
To push myself past my boundaries daily. Complacency is the breeding ground for mediocrity. It is therefore important for me to become better every day, with every effort to overcome adversity. Fighting the stigma that having muscles isn’t “feminine” is something that I’ve had to battle ever since I was crowned Miss Namibia 2015. My short-term fitness goals would be to become stronger, increase my range of motion, become more explosive, and beat my personal bests on the track and in the gym.
Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?
I have obtained Namibian national colours in various sporting codes since school level. I was crowned Miss World Sport 2015 after winning all the sub categories in that fast track (record). I placed 3rd at the IFBB Arnold Classic Africa in the Fitness Bikini O/1.72m division in 2016. I am also one of this year’s Toyota Fortuner 4×4 challenge sports heroes.
Why do you think you’re the next USN Face of Fitness?
The USN Face of Fitness should be a role model to people from different walks of life. She should live by example and motivate those who are in need of personal growth and change. Fitness is not just physical, but psychological as well. I believe that I am the USN Face of Fitness 2018 because of my charismatic personality and purpose-driven mindset. We all have just one lifetime on earth, and it’s sad to see so many people who are limited by their inability and inflexibility to broaden their thinking. Your level of perception about yourself is the most important aspect to a successful and happy life. If I became a USN brand ambassador, it would be my mission to encourage, inspire and continue living by the quote: “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” — Steve Prefontaine
