I’m A Betty!

Posted on: September 28, 2013


I didn’t think it would happen… I really didn’t. I was shocked, thrilled, shocked again and bewildered to have been selected! I am a Betty was a competition launched by the awesome sick custom gear designer Kristen Meyer, founder of

So now I will represent! I’m a tier 2 Betty! A butterfly… I can’t wait to get my email from Kristen on what’s in store for the 2014 season. I pledged a lot to Betty and I’m here to keep my word! I will now be training to compete in my first triathlon, the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon, Short Distance Competition as the first part of fulfilling my pledge.

I want to thank everyone who was involved in supporting me in my cycling foray… including my awesome brother and my charity cycling team, the Qatar Sandstormers. Without their support and encouragement, I don’t think I would have had the courage to take on the challenge.

I am honored to be part of Team Betty for 2014. Watch this blog for more information and track my progress… I’m completely stoked, beyond thrilled, beyond excited.

The Official Announcement from Betty Designs below:

Beyond thrilled to announce The Betty Roster for 2014! I received submissions ranging from PDF + PowerPoint presentations incorporating my logo, to stories about how women are “betties” in all aspects of their lives, to photos of celebrities holding submissions on the red carpet, videos and notes from your friends and family on why you should be a Betty. Submissions came from the US to Dubai, Japan, Europe and all over the world. Needless to say it was a tough decision to narrow the choices down to this list.

More details to follow next week on the specific programs for SKULL, BUTTERFLY and PINK levels of sponsorship…..keep your eye on your email.
