MS.Bikini Universe Pro Kara Bellum becomes very open about some of the struggles she faces as a bikini model. The French fitness model shares "Sometimes it's hard to be taken seriously when you are a 'Bikini' model. Most people only see the lean and 'toned' body, the bling and the beauty contest. They don't see the years of love, dedication, tears and sweat it takes to achieve such female bodies. For women muscles don't grow on trees, nor does body balance or conditioning.

I am proud to be part of the world's largest natural organization who has offered us the chance to compete. I am a proud Fitness Universe Bikini PRO and I believe in the future of my category."
