BIO: The first thing I want people to know about me is I am only here by the Grace of God. Without his love and mercy, I would be a lost, lonely soul. I found out at an early stage that I loved to exercise. To be honest that was my refuge. I was a chunky kid growing up so playing sports and exercising helped me to overcome some very detrimental low self esteem. I realized that being strong meant more than physical it meant mental as well. I found bodybuilding by accident, my stepdaughter suggested we do a competition together. I loved every minute of it. I loved seeing the changes in not only my body but in my mind and heart as well. It helped to promote a feeling of worth and appreciation in myself.
Through all the training (ups and downs), I developed an attitude that life is short and enjoy every minute. YOLO (you only live once) is a motto I am trying to live by more these days. I have changed so much in the past 3 years and I owe some of it to the world of NGA bodybuilding. I have become whom God always wanted me to be. I share my experience with others because life is not always easy, it can be tough at times. We make mistakes but what we learn can be such a blessing. If you are looking for something to motivate, inspire, look no further than inside yourself. You might just amaze yourself on what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it. Don't let anyone tell you your worth for that is yours to tell yourself. Dream BIG and DO BIGGER. I am fortunate to have a loving family. I can't wait to hear your story!!!!!!
