Most people my age (29 years young) are getting married, buying houses, having kids. I'm just over here lifting heavy shit and baring it all on an international stage in a bikini 🙈😊
You will have defining moments in your life. Graduation, falling in love, purchasing your first home, travel, having children (or fur babies). You will have successes and experience failures to learn from. From a young age, we search for something to define us, that next thing.
I never would have thought stepping on the @mrolympiallc stage would be one of mine. I can look back and say I was an (amateur) Olympian! I am extremely proud and humbled to have placed top 3! But what is more important to me is the journey - all the discipline, commitment, support, sacrifice, determination, and tears (so many tears, sorry bae ❤) that got me here. I have never worked so hard in my life. I put my mind and body through so much, especially so quickly (11 weeks). Knowing that I can accomplish anything is what drives me to keep defining new goals to reach. I don't need to fit a mold. I just need to keep challenging myself, growing, and chasing my dreams 🙏🏼
