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

To always stay focused on your main goal. Patience is the key to any success. It all starts in your head. Train your mind just like you train your muscles. It's in you and anything is possible if you believe in yourself.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It has influenced my life in so many different ways. Health wise & in my personal life. I started going to the gym not because I wanted to, but because I had no other choice. I did it for my family. 6 yrs.ago, I was depressed & an alcoholic. I am not ashamed of my past..it doesn't define me. Fitness was my natural therapy.I fell in love with fitness & now, I can say that fitness is my drug. Fitness has showed me that your body is capable to do anything no matter what gender you are

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

If God gives me this blessing to become the next Ms. Health and Fitness, I would pay my $60,000 loan that I have with L.A. County. I purchased my home 7 years ago & I got a city loan of $60,000 for being a 1st time homeowner. I would love to pay this off. I am so excited & blessed for this huge opportunity that life is giving me right now. I BELIEVE in myself & this is my time to shine & show everyone that dreams do come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
