Tell us more about yourself:

What are your fitness goals?

I only started training with weights in April 2017. I have done 2 shows thus far and placed 2nd in both in the Beach Bikini division. My goal for 2018 is to move over to the Fitness category. I am training with heavier weights and am making sure I follow the correct nutritional plan to reach my goals.


What are your hobbies?

I like to run. I use to be a real cardio queen before I started training with weights. I now only do cardio once a week because I have a fast metabolism and get lean fast. My studies also take up a huge chunk of my time but I really enjoy it. I love what I do at work.


Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?

I was chosen to participate in the IBFF South African Championships in Johannesburg.


Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?

I love the journey that I am on at the moment. I would like to share it with others as I never thought that I would be competing on stage. For me, it is all about motivating other people and also receiving motivation from them in return.
