My name is Natalie Johnson and made my first world team in the sport of weightlifting. I am thrilled at the idea of representing the United States and my alma mater, the University of Minnesota, at these games. As a first-year and part-time physical education teacher, I really need all the financial help I can get. In addition to teaching and training, I will be starting another part-time job at The Firm in Minneapolis as a Crossfit instructor. I hope that through my teaching, coaching, and athletic careers I can show people that women can be strong and feminine.
