Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
Hi, I’m Junior Pereira born & raised on a small island called Puerto Rico but have been living in Florida for the past 7 years.
I’m 6’3, 200lbs. I’m a leasing agent but currently working on becoming a fitness model.
I’m also a men’s physique competitor and love the adrenaline of competition and the stage presence but more importantly, I love inspiring others to go for their dreams and work to become their best versions.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I’m very driven, outgoing, funny, competitive. I like and want to see people grow and become their best version. I truly care, I do believe that hard work pays off and that’s me.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
The moment I truly realized I wanted to do what I do now (men physique competitor) is when I got on stage for the first time and instead of being nervous, afraid, I was beyond excited, I felt comfort, I felt at peace.
At that moment, I realized, “This is it”, this is what I truly desired.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge was moving from home (Puerto Rico) to Florida and leaving my family and friends.
This might sound cliche but I overcome it with their support, with my family and friends’ support. I owe a lot to them.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
1. Steve Harvey 2. Kevin Hart 3. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
