"After 10 years of being in the mental health field, I’ve learned that it takes putting aside my own emotional struggles to truly help others with theirs," says Model America Champion Andrea M. Estrada. With that being said, yes, burnout happens and it can be emotionally draining at times."

"That’s why my supervisors and mentors have engrained the importance of self-care, and why having hobbies is so important!"

"Competing in fitness and modeling competitions is one of my favorite hobbies and it allows me to release some of that emotional baggage in the gym, live a healthy lifestyle, be confident, and use my creativity. This makes me very happy! That smile says it all lol This is the outlet that helps me continue to grow into my best possible self to be there for my clients. Remember, caring for others means caring for ourselves first!"
