“My name is Angie Ventura. Born in Manhattan New York, raised in the Bronx. Graduated from Texas State with a BA in Exercise Sports Science and Spanish with a minor in Health. I have always been into sports since childhood but the love for fitness grew tremendously after being diagnosed with Lupus at age 19. I was curious to see how far I can push my body despite of having a debilitating disease. The effectiveness of the lifestyle change enthralled me. I believe that a plant base diet and fitness is medicine to our bodies and it has saved me. I want to be an example to others and simply continue defying the expected limitations that come with Lupus.”
