Tell us more about yourself

How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?

To show them I’m not skinny I haven’t got that six pack or skinny thighs. I hide behind that baggy clothing not wanting to wear something nice but not anymore. I am grateful for my body and I’ve had people telling me you can’t and never will be a model well guess what I could not be a model but I’m showing everyone to never give up and keep on going and trying to be your best! Use that negative energy to exercise make yourself better than anyone else

What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

Strong is the new skinny

Work to be strong, not the skinny

Work out because you love your body, not because you hate it


Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

I work out twice a day. In the morning it’s a run or a HIIT session and in the evenings I follow a program. There are days I have extra energy and I do weight training as well.

I have a healthy eating plan, healthy eating doesn’t have to be just lettuce you can make it fun and enjoy it.

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

I want to show everyone out there you don’t have to be lean to enter. I love myself and am grateful for my body and I want to show ladies my journey on where I am now to where I’m going to be.

I feel like I can inspire so much people out there to never give up and to always keep your head up high.
