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

Find something you truly love and stick to it. Sometimes it may seem unconventional and even impossible, but for you it's perfect. Know that it will be hard in the beginning, but you must keep pushing forward. It gets easier. I promise.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have so much more discipline, focus, patience and drive. If you can master your body and your mind, you can master anything.

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

I would give my parents 50%. If it weren't for them putting me into my first gymnastics class after watching the Olympics or feeding me veggies that I hated, I wouldn't be where I am right now. The other 50% I would donate to a charity, most likely one that supports and focuses on HIV/AIDS/Sex awareness/education in developing countries. I was born in Kenya and HIV/AIDS is so prevalent and directly affects the majority of the population.
