My Story

Growing up, I never considered the importance of health and always ate junk food and barely exercised. But everything changed when I got my first seizure.

I was at a party with friends and family when I suddenly blacked out. I woke up to find myself on the floor, surrounded by concerned faces. I tried to get up, but I felt intense pain in my right shoulder—I’d later learn that I’d broken my right shoulder socket.

At the hospital, I was told that my shoulder needed surgery to recover and that I’d have to wear a cast for 6 months. But it was during those physical therapy sessions that it hit me. I saw how weak my arm was and how I couldn’t even lift a bag of groceries.

So I decided to make a lifestyle change for the better. Nutrition, sleep, exercise, and mental health would become my top priorities.
