THIS IS MY STORY...

I'm not the kind of woman you can put in a box, I guess I'll start there...

 

My name is Samira Iman Howard and I'm fitness and communications professional from Prince George's County Maryland. 

 

All that I do has always been aimed towards inspiring  women to be their best selves! As the oldest of three vibrant, creative, and opinionated girls, I understood very early in life the importance of sisterhood and feminism.

 

 My interests have always been eclectic, and I've never felt confined to one thing in my life. I've been a competitive athlete,  and I've pursued everything from science to music, writing, and modeling.

In college I tried my hand at beauty pageants and fell in love. Pageantry sparked a fire in me that I hadn't felt since athletics so I competed for a total 7 years gaining scholarship money for school and lifelong connections with amazing women. For a portion of my pageant career,  I was also studying under the University of Maryland's School of Public Health and In 2012 I graduated with a degree in Kinesiology, solidifying my lifelong dedication to fitness and wellness. 

In 2016 I merged my love for women's empowerment, community service, fitness, and pageantry through the creation of "Fitness is Fundamental", a community outreach mission dedicated to teaching women and girls about the importance of positive body image and healthy fitness practices. 

On my YouTube Channel I discuss topics relating to beauty, fitness, health, and lifestyle. 

 
 

MY COMMUNITY WORK

Fitness is Fundamental is a community mission and revolution designed to educate and inspire!

 

As a fitness professional and an advocate for the progression and support of feminism, I knew that I want to start a new movement  that would encourage women and girls to use fitness as a catalyst for self love and confidence.

 

Fitness is Fundamental provides programming in the form of workshops, fitness demos, and small talks to educate women/girls about the importance of physical fitness, positive body image, good nutrition practices, and overall wellness!
