Tell your Audience a little more about yourself:

Hey lovely people! I started this bodybuilding journey as a figure girl with big dreams back in 2015. I always knew I wanted to grow and in 2017 I competed in my first Woman’s physique competition! I love being muscular and still being feminine! Bodybuilding has brought me so many oppourtunities that I am so grateful for. I also have met amazing people who have impacted my life in such a positive way.

I graduated in 2016 with a BSc. in Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry and worked as a microbiologist for a bit. However, it was not my passion. After joining a gym and falling in love with exercise I knew that this was something that I would have a purpose in and would be able to share this passion with others.

When I’m not in the gym or meal prepping I am hanging out with my family and friends or playing with my three beautiful Chihuahuas! I love the summertime and walking outside hen it is sunny. I love being at the cottage and going to a swim in the lake. I love BBQ foods, especially when my hubby makes it for me! I love music and relaxing after a long day. I also love a good thunderstorm and seeing a rainbow!

A piece of advice I would give is; never lose confidence in YOU. You CAN do it and you will, you just have to believe.
