an NGA Competitor Winter 2017
approached me planting a seed about Figure competing. I had never considered it due to my age. “I’m too old”, I told her. She was impressed with my symmetry and highly encouraged that I consider competing.
I chewed on that seed for several months as my body kept building quickly. Improving... transforming. I built to competition level in just six months and have now maintained for four.
I competed for the irst time at the NGA Western Kentucky Natural Classic. These were my accomplishments irst time competing at 48 years’ young.
I’m 48 years old and currently prepping for my next NGA competition. I would have never known my true potential if I hadn’t made the choice to change. This new journey has given
me inner-strength, courage, self-conidence, self-value, and self-worth that I had previously lacked.
Sponsorships, model shoots, itness shoots, and being published in business tools, and mag- azines are already taking place. God has opened many doors of opportunity to help show others it’s possible. My purpose, my mission.
It’s never too late to be who God created you to be. Rekindle your inner ire. Fan it, it’ll turn to lames. Be an inspiration, and encourager. value yourself. Take care of you so you can take care of others. I’m so thankful I took that step of faith. I cringe at the thought of where I’d be if I hadn’t. I’m excited to see where God leads me next! n
