Reflecting back to my 18 year old self, I was 120lbs, unhealthy, and an unhappy college drop- out. I battled extreme hypoglycemia and my doctor warned me I could become diabetic. I was unhappy with myself and my life, and I therefore decided to start making changes. I focused on my health and fitness, re-enrolled in college, and started discovering my potential. Through dedication and hard work, I graduated with a 4.0 GPA from undergrad and graduate school, spoke at my undergrad graduation, published scientific journal articles, won numerous undergrad/graduate school awards, and I am now happily pursuing a career in a field I am passionate about. I applied the same mentality and work ethic that I used for school to my fitness goals, and I’m now 60lbs heavier, healthy, and in the best shape of my life. I achieved my goals with the help and support of many people in my life and continue to be inspired by and learn from a wide array of people. I recently was selected as a 2013 Bodybuilding.com Ironman Magazine Bodyspace Spokesmodel Finalist, and I’m now doing my best to share my experiences and inspire others to meet their personal and professional aspirations while living a healthy lifestyle!
