Why did you decided to transform?
Because I wasn’t happy with who I was, and where my life was heading. I knew that I needed to change. I’ve always felt insecure about my figure. It got especially bad in my junior year of high school when I weighed over 195 lbs. due to emotional eating. It didn’t matter what I was feeling, sadness, boredom; I would just eat my feelings away. That summer I cleaned up my diet, curbed my eating habits, and started taking Zumba classes, losing over 50 lbs. After that I was hooked, I found out that I could change my body through hard work. Shortly after that I found bodybuilding and fell in love with it.
What keeps you motivated?
My passion for transforming my body keeps me motivated. The things I have achieved so far help me to believe in myself, and knowing that I still have a long way to go to meet my goals helps me to push myself. Its very important to believe in yourself, to keep yourself motivated, because you are not doing this for anyone else except yourself. And no one is going to do it for you. You need to be the driving force behind it all.
How often do you workout?
I workout 4 to 5 times a week for about a hour to a hour and a half

“Proud, But Never Satisfied” I am proud of how far I have come but I never want to lose the hunger, I always want to push myself to be better and excel.
Your future fitness goals?
As of right now I am preparing for my first NPC Bikini competition. I am hoping that in the near future I will be able to motivate and inspire many more. I want to show other people with dreams like mine that if you put your time and your heart into something you love, you can do anything.
Any advice or tips for aspiring transformers?
Dedicate yourself and be consistent. It’s easy to workout when you are in the mood, but sticking with it when your tired of it is what will make you great. Be patient with yourself, the results will come with hard work.
