Along with being a pageant queen, Lester is a fitness model. Her profile states that she began competitive cheerleading when she was very young.
“My entire life up to seventh grade revolved around the team practices and private lessons. I grew to love the workouts my coaches would put us through and I loved how long and lean my muscles looked from all of the tumbling and stunting.”
She continues, “Fitness modeling has slowly opened so many doors for me.” According to Merrikh Medical, Lester is 5’8″ and weighs 115lb.
