What are your fitness goals?

My fitness goals are to tone up my body, but still maintain my curvy physique.

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

I think I am the USN Face of Fitness because I am a dynamic young woman who is multi-faceted. I manage to balance my corporate career as a Candidate Attorney and still manage to lead a healthy lifestyle. The “craziest” thing I do to evidence my love for fitness and living healthy is waking up for the gym everyday at 04h00 am and working out just before heading to work.

Many have told me that I am crazy but I have indicated that when you love something, you will put in the effort, no matter the sacrifices you have to make. For me, sacrificing a little sleep to achieve the body I am working towards achieving has not been a problem.

Those who know me are aware of how much I love fitness and I am always willing to assist whoever enquires about my workout routines and about how I manage to keep in shape. One of my aspirations is to help empower young and old women, especially when it comes to aspects relating to one’s body and fitness goals. We live in a society where there have been excessive pressures on how women should look physically and because of that, many women spend so much time disregarding themselves as a whole and choosing to conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.

I aim and strive to encourage women that it is okay to be comfortable in your own skin and have curves. We all have different bodies and should thus be able to be happy and content in how we look and when we are not happy, get up and do something about it!

I am the Face of Fitness because I want to help contribute to an overall change in respect of how people look at themselves in the mirror. I want to be the reason why at least one person wakes up in the morning and decides to make a change and start living and being healthy.

If this platform can help me achieve greatness and contribute towards a positive outlook on fitness and life in general to the public, I am the right person to represent the brand in this regard. I am the face of fitness because I am a strong young woman who, despite having faced many challenges, still manages to get up every morning and strive towards reaching my goals.

I want to be and live the brand that can motivate the next person to do better and be better in all aspects of their life. I am the face of fitness because I will be able to encourage not only physical health, but emotional health too. I am motivated by these words: happiness, fun and contentment. Thank you for this opportunity, USN.
