Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My personal fitness goals are to remain fit and healthy while maintaining a healthy body weight and getting toned.
I want to reach optimum health while ensuring that it is sustainable in the long term.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I plan to engage with women through conferences and webinars as technology has now evolved, to educate them on making small, but effective decisions on healthy living. I also plan to access places such as schools, universities and rural areas through workshop sessions, to encourage those who have no access to information, while opening their minds up to the possibility of being fit and healthy at any age.I want to use this platform to engage women as well who are full-time mothers and have careers to make time for their health and to put themselves first. So much has changed and social media has opened doors for us to engage through Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and podcasts. There is room for everyone to be impacted through myself and Biogen. Health and fitness should be accessible, sustainable and prioritised.

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
My fitness lifestyle is a practical one.
As a student, I enjoyed group training sessions that were HIIT-based and now I enjoy HIIT workouts in the comfort of my own home.
I enjoy short, effective workouts that are still enjoyable and make use of anything around me to make my workouts more fun.
Swimming for me is the most effective and enjoyable full body workout
I workout 3-4 days a week and make use of the rest of the days of the week as recovery days. I eat clean and am focusing my diet to a more plant-based approach for family and personal reasons.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am the Biogen Face of Fitness because I add value and will add value to the Biogen brand and platform to empower women.
I choose to lead by example showing that fitness is not only about aesthetics, but is a holistic lifestyle change, and should be practical while changing lives.
My mission to add value, educate youth and empower women, therefore leading them to empower themselves and many more.
I strongly believe that no one should get left behind, every woman has value, every woman can make a change and therefore I aim to empower and unify women.
