It was a chance meeting. I was on a phone call with several people when the host asked Zakiya Jenkins to tell a bit about her story. It was so amazing that we had to book her for the newscast. Her journey toward healthy living came after reaching 305 pounds and being admitted, several times a month, to the hospital for various issues related to her weight. The decision was the beginning of Grace Fitness now a non-profit that helps others, many who can not pay, to start their own journey toward a better and more healthy life. Her work has been recognized and she's received grants from Delta Dental and AmeriCorps. Along with her work she is also studying to become a registered dietitian at Iowa State University. Get ready for a good story!
