#thankfulthursday *Long Post* Where can I start.... first and foremost I’d like to thank my coach Norm @teamnjff , about a little over a year he decided to take a chance with me and put me on his team. Back then I was no where near competition ready, I guess you can say he took a chance with me. Thank you coach for you guidance, for responding to all my annoying check ins with all the questions. But I guess you can say we did the damn thing from being a cupcake to now an IFBB PRO! I would also like to thank my team, @teamnjff @teamnjff_theguys @teamnjff_theladies. They say this is a selfish sport but truth is we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without a support system, my team is my family, thank you @musclemmama for all the support and encouragement, thank you @leonitus_fit my fucking brother for all the countless hours in the gym (truth be told I wouldn’t even be here without this guy), thank you @theall_american, @danny__tanabe, @bikinibarbie24, @yoonekornprincess, @tredfit, for being in the stands cheering me on, thank you @dreday1122, @sanjeet__singh, @anguianoheber, @kevindoylefit, @tannerdodson, @beastchickk , I know theres more but thank all of you for encouraging me to keep pushing.
