FUTURE COMPETITION PLANS:
I’m hoping to finish off the year with a Pro Card status in three divisions. October, 2016 will be my last competition for the year, as I’m looking forward to a little indulgence during the holidays. Furthermore, the off-season will allow me an opportunity to make some gains, increase my strength, and improve in the areas that the judges provide me feedback with from my last show. *** UPDATE: Monica competed at the 2016 IPL Texas State where she placed first in Bikini Open and 1st in Women’s Athletic Open, winning her IPL PRO CARDS in both.
