Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?

I use to play soccer, but decided build myself towards fitness modelling.I have no achievements but willing to make winning USN face of fitness my first.

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

I think I’m the USN Face of Fitness because I’m a very young dedicate person, unique. Somehow becoming the next Face of Fitness will not only be an achievement, but it will be a dream come true. Not only will being the next Face of Fitness open doors for me, but it will be a perfect platform for change. It will allow me to inspire teenagers at my age that if you believe in something, you have to work hard to reach it and make it a success. Fitness for me is more than just about being fit but its more about being able to tell the youngsters like me who have dreams of becoming fitness models that it is not impossible. You need to put your mind to it. I was never really confident about my body because a lot of times, I was labelled as a tomboy or given some boys names. Somehow that didn’t make me feel less of a person, but it made me feel less of a woman. I didn’t let their nasty comments or jokes bother me. I knew why I look the way I look because I’m a person who believes some things are made for a reason.

So I started gymming a lot and we all gym to reach individual goals. Gymming is more than reaching a goal but it’s more about building myself up to be more stronger, confident and very unique. I have a dream of opening a gym one day maybe more than one, I always wanted to be in the sports industry and if soccer was not the way I had to find another way and I don’t even regret the way I took towards fitness.
