I started my body building journey in 2017. I had just arrived at my new base in Incirlik, Turkey and wanted to change my life. I had just come out of an emotionally and mentally abusive relationship and I wanted to become something I was convinced that I couldn’t: a bodybuilder.
I always admired the people I saw who were physically fit because I knew there was much more to it than what I saw. I knew they had to fight, they had to make many sacrifices, and they had to be relentless with their goals and aspirations. I wanted to be like them! I wanted to prove it to myself that I was the fighter I knew I was and now I was ready to do it. 2017 I competed in my first bodybuilding competition and I’ve been hooked ever since.
My fitness journey and my faith in God has inspired and motivated me to keep going. It has pushed me to become a greater person. Bodybuilding is truly a sport that will push you to grow in all aspects of life: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It has made me appreciate everything from my past that has made me into the woman that I have become today. Every day is a new challenge to become better. Some days I conquer my goals with ease, others I have to push myself a little more to make it happen but my drive to get better keeps me going :)
What I have found is that me pushing past my insecurities, my urges to stop, my cravings for the food I know I should’ve have lol, make me better. It conditions my mind to become stronger, it conditions me, day in an day out to believe in myself. And something even sweeter—-I have been blessed to inspire others along the way. I believe my journey is not just for me but is meant to help and inspire others to become their best selves also. That's what it's about!
Being healthy, being happy, growing, learning and pushing yourself beyond your limits to becoming the person you dreamed of being. This lifestyle has enabled me to do so much and has opened up a world of possibilities that I never knew existed. Trust me
when I say— you can do anything you put your mind to!
