“Life is just a game...I accept that I’m different.”
Just like all of us, Utah encounters ups and downs in her life as well. The most challenging task she ever did is pregnancy. "I was in such a downtime seeing the physically changes on myself. I grew like 25 kg! I feel like a freak entering gym and meeting people I knew. I was so scared of how my students thought of me. Luckily, with the help from my family and friends, I was able to overcome the pressure."

I want them to grow healthily, happily, and most importantly pressure-free.”
