I AM ALFA because I always have and always will love myself at any shape and size. I work incredibly hard, and I don’t settle for the things I want out of life. I am constantly making new goals for myself, and have no doubt in my mind that I will reach them.

I am an island girl through and through. Born and raised right here in Victoria, by two VERY European parents. I am kind of a jack of all trades, and have many irons in the fire. This is because I am very ambitious and I never stop dreaming or hustling. I bartend, I have my own Air B and B, I work at a real estate office, and do hair on the side. I NEVER stop moving and that is how I live my life. I have a degree in Psychology with a minor in tech, and when I do have free time I work on my podcast for some fun light entertainment :) Beyond that, and when I am not at the gym, I am usually cuddling my dog Kali, and trying to relax. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but my next goal would either to get my masters in Psychology or to finish my real estate course. My hope is that by the end of 2020 I will be finalizing what I will be doing further as my career. While I don’t have every aspect of my life figured out, I have loved every step of the way. I have grown so much as an individual in 2020, and I can’t wait to see what the outcome of all my hard work will bring.

I AM ALFA because I work incredibly hard, and I don’t settle for the things I want out of life. I am constantly making new goals for myself, and have no doubt in my mind that I will reach them. I always have and always will love myself at any shape and size. We are all given this incredible opportunity of LIFE, and I vow to spend each and every day making sure I live my life to the fullest! I want to continually re-invent myself - becoming the best version of myself with every day that goes by and that is what makes me ALFA.

What are the most rewarding things that Fitness has brought you? Fitness has always been a major staple in my life. Starting in my early teens, I swam almost every day - twice a day even making it on a National team. It has shaped who I am, making me the ambitious hard working woman that stands before you. Being a competitive swimmer, was often straining. You would have to wake up at 5 am, have a morning workout - head to high school - and then back in the pool by 4pm. I LIVED AND BREATHED SWIMMING for most of my life. I wouldn’t change it for the world, because it has taught me the value of working hard. It taught me that I can achieve anything, as long as I put my head down and work hard. I owe my competitive energy and motivation to fitness. It is almost something that is indescribable, especially because it has been something that has been embedded in me for most of my life.

I often have people asking me how I am able to take on many different tasks at once without burning out. I never have a black and white answer, but I believe my ability to multi-task and my drive comes from my early athleticism. I don’t think, I just do. It is as if I turn on a mental switch where suddenly I have tunnel vision, and all I see is the end goal. The road of hard work ahead is never a deterrent, for I know that the outcome is far greater than any adversities along the way. So, what has fitness taught me? That I can, and I WILL kick ass at whatever I put my mind to without question or hesitation!

When was the most alfa moment in your life, and why? Winning this contest! I never win anything! EVER! Even a week before I was given the winning title, I had already made decided that I wasn’t going to be the winner but that I was proud of what I had achieved regardless of any title. When I got the phone call saying that I was the winner, it was hard to hold back tears. I was focused in trying to take the moment in. When off the phone, it was milliseconds before I was calling my trainer letting her know the good news. It was really an amazing moment, that I hope I will never forget. It just proved
