Yeah, but I was ready, I knew I got my best, so I just hoped to be rewarded for it. It's more like excitement, not shock-every-thing I've worked hard for finally being shown.
Who inspired you to compete?
My boyfriend was competing, and I was just going to the gym with him, people were saying, "You should compete, you look like you have the body to do it." And I was just like, "OK!" I started in 2015, and I just loved it from the first time I stepped onstage.
What do you love about it?
I love to perform. I was a dancer my entire life, so I'm used to being onstage in front of a crowd, showing what I've worked on. It's the same exact thing with bikini-I'm just wearing a different outfit and doing something different onstage.
What's your favorite body part to train?
I go through phases. Back to my favorite thing to work out, and then I'll love arms out nowhere. But I always want to do love shoulders and glutes. These are my focus areas.
What's your go-to cheat food?
The LI Pulse CCB burger-a chocolate candied bacon burger layered with crispy onions, white cheddar, and maple dipping sauce at Dirty Burger in Plainview, NY.
How do you pump yourself up when you're feeling unmotivated?
Morgan Page, "I Want to Know" by RL Grime, and Whitney Houston's "I Want to Dance With Somebody." 'll listen to them, and I'm like 10 times better.
You're from Massapequa, NY, where Jerry Seinfeld grew up. How's your own sense of humor?
People have been told I'm funny, and then sometimes I just laugh at myself, so I can not really tell. But, I mean, I'm not happy, I'm so happy!
I never knew what I wanted to do , I changed my major multiple times because I was going for a more career-based job like a nurse, a lawyer, a police officer, a psychologist. And now I'm into fitness, where a lot of great things are happening to me. So I would say follow what you really want to do.
You're making a pretty badass cop, though, right? [HahaIalwayswantedtoItookthestateexamEveryone'slike"Areyougonnabethenicecoporthebadcop?"
