2016 Ms. Bikini Universe Classic Short Finalist Carrie Callies Smith shares, "Accept your past without regret, handle your presence with confidence, and face your future without fear." This is one of my favorite quotes and something I try to keep in mind every day. My past does not define me, but the choices I make today will define my future. I feel so fortunate to have made choices that lead me to compete in Fitness Universe and I can't wait to see everybody in Vegas!"
