How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

My older brother Peter was always into bodybuilding and he really inspired me. He taught me how to train and seeing the results really motivated me to set goals for myself.

What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

It was the most gratifying show for me. I wasn't sure how to train for the show. I just went for it. I took a diet out of Oxygen magazine, trained intensely and pretty much winged it. I was nervous, unsure of what to expect but I went through with it anyway. Getting up on that stage was an accomplishment for me and that was my goal, placing 2nd was fantasic.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

I like meeting all the great girls backstage. I also like it because it challenges me to make improvements in my physique. I guess I would have to say I dislike the dieting at times and the protan gunk.

What are your future goals in this industry?

To have a great time at whatever I do in this industry. I do this for myself. I love to challenge myself and reach whatever goals I set for myself. I also do this to set an example to my daughter. You have to believe in yourself, if you really want something, you can get it with hard work and dedication.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

I'll be with my family enjoying life. I might be working out with my kids.

Please tell us something special about you that most people wouldn't know?

I don't think most people know that I am Puerto Rican and Greek. I love salsa music and hip-hop and I could dance my a** off. I'm
spiritual,I love kids and I am a grateful for all I have.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

I would like to thank my mom for being the women I aspire to be, my husband for being so supportive in whatever I do, Peter, Raymond, my trainer John and God for blessing my life with so much.
