Ada Garcia

A hard-working college student trying to be the best version of myself. I NEVER want my cardiac condition to come in the way of that.

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

For me, I made health and fitness a lifestyle. I started off with baby steps; first I started incorporating healthier food into my everyday meals/snacks. Then, I began creating a gym routine for myself to make it part of a daily thing. I've learned that everything has to be taken one day at a time and that the more effort I put into it, the better I feel.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has had a positive impact in my everyday life through boosting my confidence. It has not only made me feel better about my physical appearance, but it's also made me realize that my heart problems don't have to stop me from living life to the fullest. Being fit has pushed me to become a better version of myself, and helping others through my journey as well.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

If I were the next Ms. Health and Fitness, I would use the money to help put myself through college. Education is something I value highly, and I would never give up the opportunity to pursue it. I would also donate to charities which help families with children with severe health conditions, and to those who support single mothers.
