What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  Well, on an internship during college, I happened to be in NYC when 911 happened. I spent the rest of my semester volunteering around the city to feed and support the relief workers.  Also, I’ve always been fit and active and I blew out my knee around age twenty eight, that was incredibly difficult but the rehab is what got me into strongman!!  (SISS)  Fitness | Training | Business @slwellsphoto | #SISS Tell us more… who is @songe7lynn and what are you most proud of?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  I am an amateur strong woman athlete. Recently took thirteenth place in the official strongman games, thirteenth middle weight in the world.  I am a musician and an artist, and I’m a mother.  I’m proud of my children, and I’m hoping to grow my photography business to bring joy to others and set a good example for my children.  (SISS)  Finish this sentence, I have a dream… ?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  For my children to know true happiness and peace.  (SISS)  What makes you the happiest?

I lifted a 275lbs stone for the win that day, my PR before that was 205lbs, never ever count yourself out.  Something changed in my mind that day, that I could succeed.  (SISS)  What’s your favorite quote?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  “You don’t always have to act how you feel”  - Dee Duke, it’s about self control.  (SISS)  At Smart is so sexy we love to see women who are thriving in Sondra Lynn Wellstheir career or business.  What are you most passionate about?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  I’m passionate about photography and helping others.  I would like to be able to eventually highlight hard working women, who are behind the scenes with a photo shoot showing their beauty, (military wives,  single moms, any servants or helpers, teachers).  (SISS)  Who was the most influential person in your life and why?  (Sondra Lynn Wells)  I would say Lori Schneider from the CPL Kyle Schneider foundation.  She lost her son in the war, and started a foundation to help service members and their families providing them with service dogs and any supplies they might need, and is one of the most giving and strong women I’ve ever met.  (SISS)  Where were you five years ago?
