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

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

Love yourself by committing to a healthy and fit lifestyle that you enjoy! Because, if you don't love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love anyone else?

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I take each day one at a time and challenge myself to be better than yesterday. This allows me to remain patient with the progress to my end goals and not linger on the roadblocks this journey will have. I love the comraderie and motivation from the fitness community and humbled by the people I have been able to influence! I feel like a role model for my followers, and that keeps me grinding everyday!

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

Being Ms Health and Fitness is a greater opportunity to impact the lives of those who look for inspiration. This is more than money to me, it's who I am. However, With the prize money, I want to travel! Ski the Swiss Alps, hike Mt Kilimanjaro, and scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef. I would also be able to help my mother pay for her medical bills, as well as contribute to my veteran based charities.
