Melissa Peckham:

Hello, my name is Melissa Peckham, I am competing for the first time in bikini class C. My story starts back when I was 13yrs old. I started hanging out with the wrong people at a very young age, their siblings were drug dealers in highschool, and basically started off experimenting. Till I found my own ways to get drugs I started to deal, and had a hefty addiction to MDMA, and Cocaine. I was high on multiple things a day, it was very sad. I was a ghost in highschool, literally sitting in classes and just going through my purse of pills and picking them out, taking them repeat. I also went to the bathroom like clock work to do lines of cocaine and crushed up t3's/lorazepams and whatever drugs i had on hand those days. after 4years of repeated abuse and the help of my close friends, support of my parents and my school, i was able to quit and graduate on time even. When i returned to school for the first semester I spent 3hrs every morning in the gym. Yes i went a bit excessive but it kept me busy and feeling a similiar rush to the drugs. Using fitness now it helps me push my self boundaries, improve, strieve and achieve for what I want out of life and for life to give me whatever strength i did to keep going every day. From being a terrible drug addicted, confused, lonely kid to a fitness addict, happy and proud to be alive through what ive done.
