WHAT GOT YOU INTO THE WORLD OF COMPETITION? : During my “heavy” years, when others mocked me, I had this friend who believed in me when I said I wanted to be a Fitness competitor. I was a typical child going through the peer pressure of looking thin, I went through the “whole nine yards” I went from anorexia but found it hard because I loved to eat to bulimia, then I try all types of diet pills. I was always hiding from the world because I was so uncomfortable, my hiding spot every day was the bus stop, that’s when a cop noticed me each day and just had to pull over to talk to me, he then became a close friend… and older brother/a father figure. He believed in me and until then I realized that was all I needed. We started training and I did my first show in high school and took 1st and 1st again the next year.
