I've always been into athletics, though not very good at any one sport. Once I learned that movement could improve the quality of life in anyone, and perhaps even extend life, I decided to be a leader in the fitness industry.
seeing friends and family suffer and pass away from Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases only strengthened my resolve to seek out knowledge and methods whcih could most effectively inspire, motivate and educate my country to live better.
Becoming a fitness competitor is just one of those methods.
What Made Me "ME"
My heroes: mum, wife and great aunt. Phenomenal women who seem to be able to stay strong and happy through any adversity.
My Body Proud Moments
Getting endorsement deals, landing magazine spots and being a writer for magazines. I like to write and I believe that I would enjoy helping others through my writing.
Experience, Awareness, or Life Lesson that Enriched ME:
This is your Life. Live it happily.
Stretching My Comfort Zone
Movement can be truly medicinal when combined with clean eating and positive thoughts! It's not easy to combine the three but with daily concentration on being better, everyone can make a positive change in themselves and by extension others, by influencing one person at a time. Light one candle, light the world!
Talents I Wish to Hone.
Winning my category at FAME Worlds 2010 and putting Barbados on the FAME Fitness Modeling Map!

The body is a vessel which should be treated with respect. It is also a tool that can be used to strengthen mind and spirit. While no-one should be judged by the state of their body, everyone should also understand the principle of "what is inside is shown on the outside".
