More about Selena...
Selena has been bullied her entire life and is tired of the taunts. She wants to lose weight, gain confidence, make new friends and learn how to be healthy. She sees couples holding hands and dreams of walking down the street with her own boyfriend one day.
Selena is looking forward to the everyday lessons she will gain from The Biggest Loser so she can rid herself of the bad habit of eating too much of the wrong food. She can’t wait to meet new people and have fun with the various challenges that her trainer Tiffiny has in store!
Don’t think Selena’s disability of being deaf will interfere with her chances of becoming the next Biggest Loser – she is one tough cookie with a wicked sense of humour and is determined to be an inspiration to disabled people!
Selena has been overweight since she was a child, she runs out of breath easily and her entire body gets sore from too much movement. She draws inspiration from Sarah Moon from The Biggest Loser in season six. “Sarah showed Australia that no matter how hard life can push you down, just fight back and you can achieve anything.”
For Selena the toughest part of being on The Biggest Loser will be the lack of contact with her friends and family, in particular her sister who means the world to Selena. She is preparing herself for the journey by learning to trust and believe in herself and the people around her.
Her hobbies include reading, writing, cooking and singing.
