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

If you're working to get fit & healthy. You can do it! Here are my recommendations to get started! Turn your idea of a healthy lifestyle into your reality. Destroy your bad habits! Remember you are about to make the biggest transition of your life and your plan need 100% of your focus. Study people who set fitness goals and create meal plans similiar to your needs. Create a workout plan and stick to it! Don't stop once you've started your old habits are over!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I wasn't eating nutritious meals and drinking water daily. My junk food habit showed through my skin and affected my appearance in my modeling pictures. Fearing I would fall in my family history of diabetes, mental illness and cancer pushed me to do better. After a workout and nutritious meal I fell in love with how I look & feel. I've met amazing people who've guided me to be whole in all that I do and I've developed a mental balance that's essentail for me to accomplish my goals.

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

If I win Ms Health & Fitness I will organize a mental health awareness event for my mom. She struggles with schizophrenia since I was age seven. She, I and my sisters missed out on the best moments we could have had and I will continue to share her story and the importance of mental health. I will invest in my start up company "Rose Muse", I created Rose Muse to teach models how to pose for photo projects. I encourage them to learn their posing angles.
