What does AWAKE give you the energy to do more of?

Study and lift weights!

Favorite thing about your college or university?

I love the fact that it’s totally normal to randomly walk up to a person, introduce yourself, and have a conversation. I’ve made some of my best friends by approaching them randomly at the gym or at the dining hall!

Favorite varsity sport(s)?

It’s not a varsity sport at my school yet, but I recently joined the Women’s Rugby Team Club and instantly fell in love. It’s a tough sport, but it definitely helps me release stress.

What’s your proudest accomplishment?

My proudest accomplishment is definitely my weight loss. On May 24, 2015 I decided to change my lifestyle and have successfully lost 50lbs! To this day I continue working out to grow muscle and lose fat while helping my friends and others do the same in person and through my Instagram (@doitforthegains)!

What’s the most interesting fact about you?

When I was 16 I started to cater dessert events for friends and family members back at home. Once I gained more experience in the kitchen while at school I was able to expand my dessert selection. I mainly focus on decorating cakes and hope to own my own Specialty Cake Shop in the future.
