I’m a 36 year old mom of 2. I competed in my first OCB bodybuilding competition June 29th. Being healthy has driven my fitness journ

Placed 10th

overall in the competition

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Danielle Scolaro 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?

Start your journey now, don’t wait. Everyone has to start somewhere. You’ve got to put yourself first, make time for yourself and know that you are worth it!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has given me strength but most of all confidence. As a kid I was always picked on for being “too strong”, looking like a “man” or just not fitting in. This caused me to always be self conscious of my looks. My fitness journey has taught me to embrace who I am even if I look different or not what some people view as “normal”.

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

$20,000 would be life changing. I would be able to help take care of my family. My daughter has Down syndrome and my brother in law has Parkinson’s. This is another reason I started my fitness journey - to make sure I’m healthy enough to take care of them long term. There are a lot of things I could do to help them stay as healthy as possible and this money would really help!
