My prize for wining first place in the UK was to win a fabulous stage bikini by La Diva Design. I just received it last week and will wear this when I compete again next year. Here is the photo (on the left hand side).
Even though the world cup is over, my fiancé and I appeared on the campaign for Beirut City Center. This image was posted all over the mall and even on billboards. Click here to see it.
I was interviewed by Noun magazine for being a “feminine” bodybuilder. This is living proof that females will only ever become masculine from weight lifting if they take anabolic steroids. I lift heavier than many guys and I am still very feminine. Click here to see the article.
I was also featured in An Nahar newspaper for being a feminine bodybuilder. Here is the link.
I was interviewed live by OTV and spoke about competing, losing weight and my website. Watch the full interview on this link.
On July 4th I was invited to speak to abused women at NGO Maryam and Martha to inspire them to live healthier lifestyles. It was an enjoyable experience sharing my passion of nutrition and exercise. At the same time, I was able to show these women that anyone with dedication can change their life for the better and build the body they truly want. I will post more details about this to the media section soon.
Earlier this week, I had a photo shoot for a 2015 sports calendar to raise money for the charity Braveheart which helps children with heart problems. The calendar is going to feature top Lebanese athletes, national champions and Olympians and I am so excited to be taking part in it. It will be extremely artistic and is going to be a very successful project. The calendar should be out by the end of this year.
I am going to be interviewed by Radio Beirut on Friday July 18th at 7 pm to discuss fitness, nutrition and to share my story with others. If you would like to listen live, click on the following link: www.radiobeirut.net/listenlive
My gym is still an ongoing project. I can’t give a date or details yet, but my plan is still set on opening a physical location to help change people’s lives for the better. I am finally getting married on August 2nd and have been planning a big wedding for the last few months. My honeymoon will take place in Hawaii, San Francisco and Los Angeles and yes I will most definitely be hitting the gym then!!
Coming soon to this website: very useful nutrition calculators and a home exercise guide. Stay tuned!
