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

If you want to be fit and healthy you must first fix your mindset. So many give up so fast because it can become frustrating. Just like anything in life, if you want something you will have to work for it. Now don't let this get complicated! Gradually make small healthier choices to better yourself and then go from there. Being healthy is a lifestyle. You should still be able to eat a doughnut 🍩 and not feel guilty! You can do anything if you put your heart and mind into it. ❤️

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness positively infuenced my life in the most profound way possible. 2 years ago I made a decision to change my life. I was a domestic violence survivor, a single mom, I had absolutely no self asteem, and I didn't know who I was. I made a decision to compete in an NPC Bodybuilding show. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. The most important thing is that my mindset changed, and I found my calling. Now I help other women everyday to be the best version of themselves possible.

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

If I won, I would use the money to help my family. I would also invest in my business/education classes so that I can help as many women as I possibly can. If I can help just one woman get out of an abusive situation, this will all be worth it. I hope I can inspire and motivate as many women as possible to fall back in love with themselves and realize how important they are. We as women should empower eachother! If we stand together, we will be unstoppable!
