Merve Akkaya

I am a professional bikini athlete from Turkey. My story is quite inspiring and interesting. I was obese, 86 kilos a couple of years ago...

Placed 27th

in international group four

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Merve Akkaya and her voters for helping us donate $179,724.93 to our injured United States military veterans!


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

The point is to know your body! First now discover yourself! Then deside how do you want yo look like?... Step three is to make a plan! Then start your new chapter... AND NEVER GIVE UP!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It makes me feel how strong i am! It makes me feel to realise... I am ALIVE!

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

Would be my pleasure! And i will spend it for my next career plan with takin acting course from Hollywood...
