I was born in Dakar, Senegal and have lived in multiple states in my life thus far. My father serves in the U.S. Navy which allowed me to interact with people from all walks of life. I attended J.P. Stevens and graduated in 2019. I then furthered my education at Rutgers, where I chose to study exercise science.

Throughout my life, I had a passion for exercise and fitness since I struggled with my weight and image at an early age. I found that exercise gave me power to do more than I could ever do, both physically and mentally. My one true hope is to help others realize this too!
