After joining high school, she soon realized that this was not something she wanted. Hence, Cohen chose to drop out of college and embarked on her fitness journey. Cohen’s rise to fame was spearheaded by a major decision that she took in 2017.

In the video, shedding light on her past life, Cohen said, “My journey here has not been easy, to say the least. I dropped out of college and everyone told me what I was going to be without even knowing my true heart and passion for my craft. And I remember dropping out of college and I felt like such a loser.”

Revealing the saddest part of her life, she said “It’s like sometimes I don’t even know. I’ve sacrificed so much of my life that sometimes I forget there’s an outside world outside of my life.” Reflecting on the hardships she faced in the runup to become successful in her passion, she added that people often think that social media success is easy, but emphasized the fact that this was seldom the case. “Nobody told me how to do this, nobody gave me any direction,” she revealed, explaining how the entire journey was the product of the heart and soul that she had put in.

Despite having attained numerous laurels throughout her career, Cohen still continues the grind and is looking forward to what 2024 has in store for her.
