Sonya Thomas

A lot of my life is done outside of this blog. I need to live in order to write. I write in bursts. Marion instructed me to find an inspirational person I can model myself after. A mentor. I have found her. Her name is Sonya Thomas and I accidentally came across this incredible woman while watching TV. She weighs less than 100 pounds but can eat more food in one sitting than just about any other human on the planet. Sonya Thomas has broken more than a dozen World Eating Records and is considered one of the world's greatest competitive eaters.

Yes, she may be a strange role model but I wanted to find a person that was the “best” at something – that people couldn’t believe. She is a Burger King Manager and I recently e-mailed her to ask her how she found out about her abilities.

I want to find my true abilities too.
