Student Athlete Featured in Employee Magazine

UHD student and powerlifting team member Briana Villarreal was featured in the May 2014 edition of Associate Monthly, the employee magazine of Victoria's Secret.

Villarreal is the sports sales specialist for the Victoria's Secret store in the Houston Galleria.

According to Villarreal, she has been lifting competitively for several years as her primary source of exercise and fitness.

"I have been a powerlifting competitor for over seven years and it has definitely helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle. Don't believe in stereotypes, women can lift, too," she said. "It's not about being bulky, it's about staying fit and creating lean muscle mass."
