How did you get into fitness and competing?
I was very underweight and unhappy! I struggled to gain weight and felt like no one understood as society seems to think all girls want to be skinny/slim! I didn't, I wanted to feel strong! That was when I found the gym. It was never my intention to compete when I started training. I just wanted to look better and feel healthier. I trained for 3 years working on building muscle before I decided to step on stage.
How do you balance your social life and fitness life?
In the offseason it's not hard. Prep is a little more difficult as you need to be much more strict. But you can still socialise without eating/drinking off plan. Having family and friends that understand your lifestyle and goals makes it a lot easier.
Who do you look up to in the fitness industry?
No one person in particular! I love the fitness industry as a whole. Everyone continually trying to better themselves and doing something we all love. I've grown a lot as a person since finding fitness. It's taught me discipline & determination. You only get out what you put in!
