I want to become an Olympic weightlifter within the Olympics so I need to go into my routines with a champion mentality...In order to get to where I need to be, it's not about entertainment it's about what needs to get done.

It's really important for me to stay active...it's how I take care of my mental health. I love being active and looking great but it really has a lot to do with wanting to stay stable, and staying healthy.

I learned to be confident in my own skin from years of being bullied and having to put up with that. Either you learn to be okay with who you were or you listen to everybody else and you sacrificed yourself. You're confident in who you are because you've worked on building who you are.

I stay active because it's part of my development as a woman. Over the years, I've developed consistency, discipline and understanding the value of hard work.
