Our newest IFBB Bikini Pro, Vanessa Chung Avila, is a prime example of why you should never give up on your dreams! This 27 year-old inspiration began competing a couple of years ago with just one thing on her mind: to win her pro card. After 2 years and 7 national-level shows later, Vanessa finally accomplished her goal! She is a firm believer in doing what you are passionate about and working hard at it every single day. Her journey to top was not easy but Vanessa never stopped believing in herself; this is what kept her motivated throughout the tough days of her journey. We are so proud to have her on the ProSupps team sharing her story and inspiring all of us to never give up on what we want most! If we can dream it, we can do it!
