Hi, I'm Erika...
I was born and raised in Chicago,IL. Many know me as a former athlete. Others describe me as shy and quiet person. I like to consider myself as someone who focuses on their happiness. Especially on days when it seems like there is nothing to do, however for me there is always something to do. Whether it's something small like cleaning to focusing on yourself. I have focus more on putting my happiness first. By working hard and doing my best at the things I enjoy helps me move forward to bigger things I want to accomplish.
Part of my job requires to motivate others to pursue a healthier lifestyle. At the age of 25 I began sharing my passion for food on social media. Till this day, I have come a long way that I had the opportunity to create my own book "THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE". I would say this book is one of the best things that has happened to me. Why? Because it was unplanned and unexpected. I considered myself lucky and blessed that I am able to help others. I couldn't have done it without the support of the people who are in my current life.
Even though I don't share my happiness, interests and thoughts, does not mean I am ignoring you. I have always been a close person. Opening up has been one of the hardest things for me to do. One thing that has made it easier is sharing my talent with others by posting on social media. My social media focuses more on food and working out. I am not fitness influencer but I do enjoy working out. Doing HIIT workouts and running helps my body stay in a consistent healthy life.
As of right now my focus is to continuing with the THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. Eating healthy and working out weekly definitely brings joy to my life. I may not have a six pack or eat clean as I wish. But I know this is only the beginning to something big.
