How did you get started with fitness/bodybuilding?

RISING STAR :I was underweight and I had stopped eating and became very unhappy with myself. I entered my first bikini competition ‘thinking’ that I looked good and would do well. But I didn’t realize how skinny I had become.2

What motivates you to keep going and push harder?

I’m very self-motivated and I love seeing results. I also have an amazing support system. My family, friends and my boyfriend have been incredibly supportive of me. Even my fans and followers are always there for me.
