Current Hometown: New York
I grew up in the deep fried South and, though always active, never really gave a lot of attention to what I ate or my health in general. It wasn't until the age of 24 that I started educating myself on nutrition and maintaining a regular program of exercise. I gradually eliminated unhealthy foods from my diet and progressed to a mostly vegetarian then vegan lifestyle. I also developed a love for exercise, especially HIIT, HIT, and rehabilitating workouts.
We can only control so much when it comes to our health due to many factors that are out of our hands (environmental, hereditary, etc). I have decided to reasonably control what I can to remain as healthy, energetic, and youthful as possible. I also find much happiness and satisfaction in knowing my choices are positive for the world around me. My current lifestyle is a far cry from my upbringing, but my vegan diet coupled with a passion for fitness has led me to feel the best I've ever felt! I hope to motivate others to take an interest in their health by adopting plant-based lifestyle and staying active physically by my example and social media platforms.
