My name is Talla Amini and I am a bikini and fitness model . I was born and raised in Naples , Florida . I grew up dancing in ballet and then started to play tennis and since then I always had that feel of wanting to be acting and spend my extra time being physical that would challenge me .
After a few years once I got into high school , I was the one out of the two woman that chose “bench press” class as we had a few options to choose from . I was the one out of two that loved it , and since then I fell in love with gaining strength . It was one hour devoted to chest press and leg press and I found it very motivating !
After high school I went to study education at the University of Washington to become a first grade teacher and receive my bachelors degree there. During this time of studying , I worked at at many gyms doing part time work .
From this experience , my motivation to get in shape increased rapidly , which later turned into me having the desire to compete !
In October of 2013, I did my first bikini competition which I placed in the top among 21 athletes which even made more excited to compete ! I then competed in other shows taking first at a few shows and staying in the top three .
In 2017, I took what I felt was my lowest placing at the Emerald Cup but since then I have been determined and driven to have my comeback in 2018 and the best that I can do.
Competition weight: 115 pounds
