I was an athlete in high school, but then I had hip surgery, I could not work out for several years. I was determined to get back in shape after years or physical therapy
The past FLEX Bikini Model Search winners, like IFBB bikini pro Amanda Latona, have deﬁnitely inspired me to get in shape and get on stage and compete. They are the product of what happens when strong meets feminine, and that’s beautiful! I was always admired all of the fit girls I would see in the magazines
You can’t just walk in and win; it’s a lot of dedication and sacrifice. I spend up to six days per week training and follow a rigorous diet but the sacrifice is well worth if for me! We’ll find out soon if that’s enough when the voting process for the Flex Bikini Model Search begins.
