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

It starts inside of you knowing that you are worth it. You deserve to be healthy and fit! My advice to others is to start with your mindset. Start with small steps in your diet and take action everyday to make it your lifestyle.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Like a trusted friend, fitness has always been by my side. It helped me cope with life in America after leaving my family in Africa as a young teen. It helped me overcome Guillain Barre Syndrome. It helped me come back after giving birth to my daughter. Being fit feels so good!

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

Some of the money would go towards my daughter’s education and future. I would also help my family back home in East Africa. My dream is to start a foundation in my home country(Eritrea) that promotes women’s health and fitness. It is a foreign concept there. I would like to help make health and fitness more mainstream in Eritrea. Not only can it help young women physically but it can also help with self confidence and pride.
