- Hey there! I'm a 20 year old girl from Toronto, Ontario. I'm currently studying Kinesiology at Western University in London, Ontario. I grew up dancing, playing sports and swimming but never considered myself physically fit. In high school, I would go out every weekend with friends. The nights consisted of several drinks, greasy food and nothing but regrets. I personally never really enjoyed living that lifestyle but I did it anyway because that's what everyone else was doing. At that point I would workout once in a while but never really saw results because I wasn't consistent. I didn't eat clean or respect my body. I wasn't happy with my body so I would diet and then binge. I never stuck to a happy medium or found a balance. In 2012, I left my hometown and moved to a new city to start University. I began University in the Social Science program, undeclared as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do in the future yet. I was leaving everything I knew behind and starting a brand new path in my life. My residence was super close to the campus rec centre so I started working out more and more. I ditched the hour long cardio and started lifting weights. The more into fitness I got the less I found myself going out drinking with friends. I lost friends who didn't respect my choices or understand why I chose to go to the gym on Friday nights instead of going out to bars. But it didn't really bother me because I made tons of new friends at the gym and on campus who shared this passion for fitness and health with me! Once I stopped trying to fit in and be some sort of party girl, I got the chance to find myself and what I love. Once I found myself, everything just started falling into place.
