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

I would ask them what is their purpose is for wanting to live a fit and healthy lifestyle? This lifestyle is not easy, especially with the temptation of unhealthy food at every corner and pressure from your peers to veer off track from your fitness goals. So you will need a strong purpose to keep your vision alive and reach your goals. When you invest in yourself and your health, the return in life are measurable and fulfilling.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Growing up I was very shy, insecure, & very weak minded. Fitness changed that for me. It gave me a sense of self-worth, courage, purpose, & strength. Fitness is apart of the foundation to becoming successful because you are able to use your skills in strengths in every aspect of your life. I will never forget the feeling of accomplishing a goal. That is exactly why I do what I do today. I am a life coach, & trainer. So I am able to help guide others to achieve the same feeling.

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

My goal is not only to transform one mind at a time but to help make a difference in my community. I want to give back to our troubled youth, our future, the ones forgotten. I want them to have a second chance in life. The money will be used to support youth served by Williamson County Juvenile Services. Funds will support kids participation & connection to their "sparks." This would allow to help kids who otherwise couldn't afford to connect to their passions whatever that may be.
