Tell us how you felt before and after standing 5th place in the world at IFBB World Championships in Como, Italy. And becoming the first woman in the UK to achieve an IFBB Figure Pro card abroad?
Prior to the world championships – nervous but quietly confident. I put everything into preparing for that competition. No stone was left unturned… However, I was competing against some world champions whom I really looked up to so it was nerve racking. Afterwards… what can I say, it was fantastic! All of my hard work and sacrifice had paid off… I was also relieved it was over, I felt exhausted. It remains one of my greatest achievements, alongside my university successes.
Who has been your biggest influence and motivation in your path to success?
My biggest influence – Monica Brant… she remains the world’s best ever figure professional in my opinion. Currently though I am inspired by Latorya Watts – she is an outstanding figure pro and current Miss Olympia. My influences now? I think my family and friends; they always encourage me to pursue my dreams to compete.
You have won 1st place at UK Body Fitness Champion and so on. What additional responsibilities these winnings bestow upon you towards the community and the sports of professional figure competitions you compete in?
I think I have a responsibility to be honest, whilst also promoting a healthy lifestyle and attitude towards competing and fitness modelling. I try to maintain professionalism too… It’s important for those coming up in the sport to have a positive influence, and it’s important for my sponsors too.
