I took up exercise as a hobby at first; only to build my body as a means to construct self-confidence and respect from others. It later became my passion which drives me to excel today. I dedicated my extracurricular activities to perfecting my internal and external image, ultimately sculpting my body into the form it is today. During my tenure in high school education, competition became my primary goal. In an effort to stay competitive and well rounded, I also participated in various sports like football, basketball, and baseball. I was motivated by the rigorous activities that I had undertaken and endured by the results I was able to achieve. I developed a strong core, both physically and emotionally, and realized I controlled my own sense of self. Through physical fitness, I also quickly became noticed, thereby also earning the respect I sought. I realized my calling was to help others achieve their potential as bodybuilding had enabled me to do.
