Kagan Dunlap, who has been a part of the fitness world for the past 13 years, talks about his secret to success.

Kagan Dunlap first entered the fitness world when he was in the middle of his Associates’ degree. He met an Army Ranger through his job at the time and the two bonded instantly. Not only did he inspire Kagan to join the military, but he also inspired him to really get serious about training and fitness, and so began his fitness journey. Kagan Dunlap has since been a fitness enthusiast for the past thirteen years. When he first began his efforts to join the military the armed forces were in the process of a major drawdown and with a drawdown come more stringent restrictions.  This resulted in preventing Kagan from joining the Army at the time. Fate had other plans in mind for him. He relentlessly pursued enlisting in the military for 7 years until finally he decided since he wasn’t able to get into the Army that he would attempt to join the Marines.  Within a year from making this decision Kagan found himself at Marine Recruit Depot Parris Island.  Kagan graduated as his platoon honor graduate and went home for leave before reporting to the School of Infantry at Camp Geiger.  He graduated from SOI as a Towgunner and was placed in a CAAT platoon in The Weapons Company in 2nd Battalion 3rd Marines. He had plenty of incredible experiences and learned a lot from some of the most impeccable leaders.

During his third deployment, Kagan was selected for an enlisted commissioning program within the Marines that allowed him to go back to college as an active duty student and complete a degree and commission at its completion. He chose to attend The University of North Carolina to complete his bachelor’s in Exercise and Sports science. Kagan is attending UNC at Chapel Hill currently and finishing his degree. He plans on getting his NASM CPT certification while he’s there as well as becoming a Certified Sports Nutritionist from the International Society of Sports Nutrition. Meanwhile, he is also working on growing his Instagram and youtube accounts where he plans on helping people through personal training experiences and recommending suitable diet plans.  

“Being humble and engaging with anyone and everyone who needs or desires help.  I don’t care who they are where they are from or what they do, I want to help people.  I love talking to people from all walks of life and I want to help people achieve goals to become better than they were yesterday. I want people to know that I genuinely care about helping them pursue their goals,” says Kagan Dunlap, when asked about his secret to success.

The trait that sets apart Kagan from others is his genuine interest in helping a client out who is struggling with confidence and body image. He isn’t concerned about getting rich quick. He wants to see people achieve their desired results, and wants to share his passion for fitness with the anyone and everyone looking for help.

The Miss NJ competition seeks a leader, a role model who inspires with both brains and heart. Enter Sara Zaimi, a trailblazing pharmacist with a Doctorate (PharmD) whose passion for women’s health and community empowerment burns brightly.

A brush with mortality at a young age – chest pain and a concerning blood test – ignited a fire in Sara. Witnessing the unwavering spirit of women battling cancer in the oncology ward solidified her desire to make a difference. It was her mother’s unwavering support, the way she held her hand through fear and doubt, that propelled Sara to answer that call. Overcoming self-doubt and depression, she embarked on a remarkable academic journey, graduating with her PharmD at the prestigious Rutgers University at the early age of 23, placing her among the top 10% of her class.

As a first-generation Algerian American, she’s a testament to the power of hard work and perseverance. Her academic achievements, including valedictorian honors and consistent Dean’s List placements, stand as a testament. This translates further into her successful business, where she champions women’s health awareness. Her impact extends far beyond the pharmacy walls. Sara dedicates her time to NJ Sisterhood, empowering young women and inner-city communities. Her fluency in Spanish further highlights her commitment to inclusivity and understanding.

Driven by personal experience and empathy, Sara aims to leverage the Miss NJ platform to tackle critical women’s health issues. From early detection of breast cancer to advocating for increased resources, she seeks to empower women to take charge of their health. Her work with NJ Sisterhood complements this mission, focusing on projects that empower women and address their specific needs. Her advocacy includes promoting 3D areola tattooing for breast cancer survivors, a powerful example of how science and art can converge in the healing process.

Sara’s strength lies in the synergy of her diverse experiences. Her business acumen and her work with NJ Sisterhood position her to champion women’s health and community well-being on a grander stage. She envisions using the Miss NJ platform to create tangible change, increasing resources for those affected by breast cancer and other women’s health issues.

The demands of a successful business, active volunteer work with NJ Sisterhood, and the rigorous training for the Miss NJ competition require exceptional time management skills. Sara thrives under pressure, meticulously juggling her commitments without compromising on quality.

Her multifaceted personality, unwavering commitment to women’s health, and passion for community empowerment make her a strong contender for Miss NJ. She embodies the true spirit of the competition: a woman who is not just beautiful, but a force for good, inspiring young women to reach for their dreams and embrace their unique talents.
