I write beautiful words to heal souls. And I share my knowledge to help others become healthier and fitter versions of themselves.

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Mitzi J Hernandez 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?

You must first set a goal, then set up a plan. Keep a log and take progress pictures and measurements to track progress. NEVER rely on the numbers on the scale. Lastly, keep in mind that this is a journey, and not a race. When you are on the road to become a fitter and healthier version of yourself, you will have setbacks and some bumps along the way but you must keep going. Don't you dare to give up on yourself when things get hard! You can do it!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

As proud of myself as I am of my physical transformation, I am prouder of my mental and spiritual transformation. Fitness has helped me a lot with gaining mental strength, understanding, and self-acceptance. Yes, I am 50 pounds lighter, but I am still me. I still struggle sometimes, but I am healthier, stronger and most importantly I am happier. And to know that through my transformation I have inspired many to become the best versions of themselves, has given my life a purpose.

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

Winning this would be a life changer. 1) I'll have the money to visit my family in Mexico whom I haven't seen in 16 years since I left home. 2) I can pursue a fitness modeling career 3) I'll have the funds to publish my books, and become an Author. This is my chance to make my dreams come true.
