"It was 2012 when I first joined the gym, I had no idea what I was doing other than grabbing dumbbells and running on treadmills.

Growing up I was always the chubby kid, I’d eat junk food and sweets all day long therefore I had a hard time loosing weight. After going through puberty drastic changes happened to my physical self.

I became taller, my body started stretching out realizing that I’m now tall and skinny, and that is when I decided to do whatever it takes to start filling up muscle mass.

Bodybuilding became a serious passion of mine when started seeing results back in 2014, I was nowhere near to what I am today but looking back at that time I’m very happy that I stood high and proud and did what I loved the most.

I took it seriously and dedicated myself, my soul purpose to the idea of not just to look good, no but to be healthy and boost myself esteem so it made me confident and proud of my achievements.

As I grew up I realized that I’m getting better at it which pushed me even harder to start learning about nutrition and the human body. 7 years later I got to what I am today, the idea of it became art and how to sculpt my own physique, it is a sensation of euphoria that is also therapeutic for my mental health and well-being.

The goal is to prove that anything is possible with the right mindset, the body achieves what the mind perceives. I want to help and inspire others to reach their goals and that one day I become a IFBB PRO Bodybuilder."
