When and where did your journey into the world of health and fitness begin and who or what inspired you to get into weight training? I’ve always had a passion for fitness. Growing up in South Auckland, rugby was a normal part of most family’s lives and weekends, and being from such a large family with cousins of similar ages, I was always doing physical activities. My interest in weight lifting started when I was a young teenager. It basically started off as an extension to rugby training and became another competitive avenue in itself. Training with the boys inspired me to push myself harder and further, especially after seeing the results that came with it. Eventually, my passion for weightlifting grew into a new venture and I continue to nurture that passion today.
Congratulations on your recent victory at the 2015 Natural Bodz Asia Pacific Championships where you took out first place in the Muscle Model Category and also the Physique Class. I believe this was your first competition, how did it feel to achieve such success in your first ever stage appearance? Thank you! It was very surreal to be honest. I think for most people, you really just do your best to work towards that number one spot, but I never imagined I’d do so well in not only one category, but two. I felt incredibly proud and truly humbled to have been able to achieve such a high level of success in my first ever stage appearance and competition. Looking at the footage my partner recorded on her phone still gives me goose bumps. It was an experience that will stay with me forever!
