ON WHY SHE WANTS TO BE ON MISSION MAKEOVER: Because it’s time and I’m over being overweight. I want it and am done with see-sawing and feeling the way I do in my skin. I don’t like to look in the mirror and I don’t recognize myself. Because I’m a performer, it’s tough having to worry about whether or not I’m going to get the gig because of my appearance. I’m over feeling that pressure. I want to get rid of the weight and be happy. I deserve to be happy.

ON HER MOTIVATION TO LOSE WEIGHT: My Family and my mom, who used to be overweight and now is a trainer and my role model. Also, my sisters are overweight and I want to encourage them, set an example for them and show it can be done.
ON HER GOALS: I want to rock a bikini, do a professional photo shoot, record an album and be the best possible version of myself that I can be. I am ready to take charge and fight for my life.
