HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH FITNESS/BODYBUILDING?
Well I started working out when I was 12 years old. So I have like 6 years of lifting under my belt! But how I got started in the fitness industry was Tanji Johnson came up to me about 5 months ago at my gym and said I should do her bodybuilding show that was in a couple of weeks! Well I did it, won my class and the overall. That was just the beginning!
