So on May twenty. Sixteen she decided to create a website called fringe and fitness where she taught women about fitness and self care and in what was- have an afterthought for revenue model. He recommended a few water bottles and tank tops on the side, but let's go back a bit when she was seven years old prettier had her first you're, it became hyper aware of her body when it was telling her without her only implemented such a young age she'd also your mother slave away and put everyone before herself and pretty about in the same route. Instead, she chose to make decisions that made her healthier and happier,
And give her body and mind what they needed, thus allowing her be a better friend or a partner or mother and then jumping to her later years, prettier had worked as a fitness coach, where she was fascinated by classes that allowed her to explore how the human body worked.
