Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

I had a bad injury and couldn’t walk, talk or see clearly, but I exercised myself back to wholeness. Now I encourage and inspire more people to lead a fit lifestyle.

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

I live, talk and breathe health, so it would be an honor to be the Biogen Face Of Fitness. When you look at where I came from to where I am now, you can clearly see the importance of a fit lifestyle.

    • Watson (Father) on September 6, 2020

      My daughter embraced her independent spirit and enthusiasm to overcome a horrific car accident at the age of 22 that robbed her of her speech,vision and mobility while she was in a comma for 2weeks and cut short her promising modelling and business careers.
      Through God’s Mercy ,her belief,determination
      inspiration and spirit of not giving up,a positive mindset and attitude got her through all this.
      Soon after physiotherapy, she joined fitness lifestyle institutions e.g.Virgin Active with a personal trainer to assist her to regain her lost balance etc.
      She is now leading an active healthy lifestyle.
      Mpumi,you are such an inspiration and a role model to other women out there especially to your Mom who started to leave an active lifestyle.(athlete)
      We love you and we are very proud of you.
      Good luck to your endeavoured
