WHAT MOTIVATES YOU, WHERE DOES YOUR MOTIVATION COME FROM?
uff, what a questions, I think all my motivation comes from within, nobody gives me the motivation directly. I just think about the next contest, and how I see myself on the stage and in-vision that I’m always the winner.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST EFFECTIVE WORKOUT ROUTINE?
The most effective workout routine has been legs, I have been training legs frequently, three days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each day I train different legs part but I always hit my glutes hard every day.
WHAT DOES YOUR COMPETITION DIET CONSIST OF?
My diet consists of 6 meals a day. My first meal consists of two slices of bread and 6 egg whites, and then the remaining 5 meals are simply chicken breast with salad. I find dieting for competitions very hard, one of the hardest parts of competitions.

WHAT MISTAKES DID YOU MAKE WHEN FIRST STARTING OUT, AND ANY ADVICE FOR NEWBIES?
In the beginning everyone makes mistakes, be it: diet, exercises and being on stage. This is all normal when starting out, my advice and something that I tell all my female pupils is, “think you are the best when you’re on stage, you really are the best, and believe it! If you can’t believe it, then no one whill believe in you”.
It is the most important mind set to be in, don’t look at the other girls on stage, I never see my rivals and I know I am the best.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?
Apart from winning my IFBB Pro Card, I think the 4th place in the World Championship was very important, but I’m proud of every achievement I have succeeded with. In general I am so happy to be on stage competing.
