I do me the best way I can.

Michelle is an advocate for women to explore what their body’s can do.  She believes women’s body’s have a purpose greater than being admired or criticized.  She has been quoted as saying that her body was never meant to be small.  Rather, it was made perfectly for what she was MADE TO DO. “Simone Biles can’t throw the shot-put like I can, but I’m not about to get on the gymnast mat like she can.”

If you look good, you feel good, you do good – and I’m going out there to do my best.
