Interests: "I am looking forward to graduating
in May of 2006 so I can reproiritize because as of now, my
hobbies are school first and then bodybuilding and that is
it. BUT when I have free time, I love to play basketball."
& Physique Competition History: "I played
basketball while I was in high school and had planned to play
in college. But towards the end of high school, I became 100%
focused on trying to put on muscle size for bodybuilding.
I also played softball my senior year. I then started to spend
most of my free time training at the gym which ended up being
to my advantage because my strength had increased and really
helped me to succeed.
have been lifting seriously since I was a freshman in high
school. Although I couldn't take weightlifting as a freshman
in school, I did manage to work out everyday. The coach of
the weightlifting class went to the gym that I went to in
the mornings before school. Since I wasn't old enough to drive,
my mom would wake up and take me to the gym every morning
at 4:30am. I would work out, do cardio, tan, take a shower,
and then I would ride to school with the coach.
is how I trained to compete in my first competition. I competed
in my first figure competition, the Quincy Roberts "Elite,"
when I was a freshman at 14 years old. I looked awesome for
my age, but yet I was obviously a little underdeveloped! I
think I was about 110lbs! It was a great experience and I
fell in love with the enviornment. It was a big thing for
me to become a sophmore because I could take weightlifting
next competition was when I was a junior in high school. I
did Roger Morrison's Metrolina Show. I competed in the bodybuilding
division for my first time. Unfortunately, I had to compete
against one of the best female physiques ever from North Carolina,
Melanie Thompson! Remember,I was only 16 at the time, and
Mel was, well... HUGE compared to me! There were three girls
in the lightweight class, and I got third. But hey, another
learning experience out of the way! I was still happy, and
I got my first trophy!
next show was when I was a Freshman in college. I competed
in the NC State Championships, lightweight bodybuilding class,
and got third. I hadn't planned to do this competition; I
had been dieting for about 7 weeks to do figure at the Metrolina
and my brother asked me if I thought that I could get ready
for bodybuilding at the NC States in 1 week! I thought this
would be impossible, but of course I took it as a challange
and preceeded to do so. I dropped 15 pounds in one week and
placed third in bodybuilding.
still did the Metrolina about 1 month later and, once again,
placed third; but this time in figure. By then, I was tired
of placing third! I took a year off to try to put on some
year, 2004, my Sophmore year, I decided to do bodybuilding
at the NC States. I completed an 18 week diet and dropped
down to 124 lbs from 160 lbs for the competition. I was, what
I thought, in excellent condition. I placed 1st in the lightweight
class and then went on to win the 2004 Overall NC State Women's
Bodybuilding title. This made me eligible to compete nationally.
2004 J. Nationals were only 4 weeks after the NC States, so
I decided to give it a try! I busted my ass for those next
4 weeks and weighed in at 120lbs. What I thought was excellent
conditioning for the NC States, didn't even compare to the
difference in conditioning that I had at the Jr.'s. I placed
2nd in the middleweight class at the 2004 Jr. Nationals.
have taken the time since the show to put on as much muscle
possible. I am now planning to compete at the 2005 USA's.
From where I started out, I think that I have come a very
long way and am so thankful that I am where I am right now!
I only want to better my overall physique.
is the one thing that I can turn to, to free myself from anything
that might be bothering me. I go in the gym to get my mind
off of everything and to just focus on what I love the most,
training! I like the off-season look as well as the in-season
look; I like being full and muscular, but then again I like
being shredded when it comes competition time. The week by
week progress during competition is awesome to look at the
whole way through. The competitors and the competition that
they bring with them to the stage is great and the backstage
enviornment as well as on-stage time is an adrenline rush.
Bodybuilding is my dream and I am loving every minute of it!
future goals in the sport of bodybuiding are to compete in
the 2005 USA's. I'm taking it one step at a time. I'm sure
that you all can imagine what my future goal is, going pro
would definatly be the most awesome thing ever. But as for
right now, I am just taking everything as it comes. I am hoping
to bring a new physique to the 2005 USA's, and in turn make
a name for myself on the national level.
