“Last year in my debut in Cambodia, I placed sixth among 13 contestants in the same category, but it was an open competition without any height requirement”.
“This time, I bagged silver. I’m happy because it validates all the efforts that I have put in throughout the past two years,” shared the fitness instructor.
Looking back at her journey the lady said, her journey has not been quite easy. She has not always been interested in fitness as she is today. The lady shares “I struggled with weight problems four years ago and, on top of that, I suffered a failed relationship”.
“I remained at a bad place, up until I realised that I needed to change that.
“Now, I believe that my journey and whatever that I have achieved so far, serve as proof that women can be as powerful, beautiful, healthy and confident as they can be.”
She credits her success to her mentors who are also former Asian Bodybuilding champions – Buda Anchah and Malvern Abdullah.
Lastly, we would also like to congratulate the lady and wish her all the success in her life and her future endeavors ahead.
