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

Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Remember we all started somewhere, so focus on your own journey. Instead, try to become a better version of you. Take it one day at a time, work hard, be patient & most importantly stay consistent. Set smaller goals instead of just huge ones that will take more time. All of these steps will ensure long term success I promise.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I know we all have a story, mine comes more so from a mental place. Although I never lost 100lb or had cancer,Fitness did save my life. Providing me with the mental capacity to deal with life issues and find sanity and hope in the darkness. Fitness literally keeps me going, which is why I am so passionate about helping others use it to tackle their toughest life battles. Growing up I was weak, had no backbone, let people walk all over me. With this, Fitness gave me the STRENGTH to be CONFIDENT.

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

Wow thats such a tough question. Honestly, it would only feel right to put most of this amount back into something that will help others. Perhaps a college fund for less fortunate teens, or starting a non-profit for a specific health topic. I would LOVE to sponsor a few people who can't afford gym memberships or train someone who can't pay for a trainer with this prize. But I am open to anything outside of this.
