​Entertainment reporter Sangita Patel spends her days interviewing celebrities, but don’t let the fact that she’s rubbed elbows with George Clooney and Priyanka Chopra, among many, many others, fool you: she’s a down-to-earth mama of two daughters before she steps into wardrobe, and the spotlight.

As a personality for Entertainment Tonight Canada, and host of HGTV Canada’s reno show, Home to Win, she is quickly becoming a household name—something CoverGirl took notice of, nabbing her as a Canadian spokesperson for its “I Am What I Makeup” campaign. “At 40, I became a CoverGirl, which is insane,” she says. “I’m so honored and proud.”
“Fitness came into my life when I really needed it.”

The cosmetics giant’s campaign, which speaks to not only creativity and talent but also self-acceptance, draws parallels with Sangita’s own life, in which she balances her family, passion for fitness, and career; all while making her mark in an industry that only recently started celebrating diversity and a variety of body types.

A proponent of maintaining a healthy mind and body through fitness, Sangita has fought hard for her muscle, training in CrossFit, Muay Thai, and pretty much any style that gets her a good sweat on the regular. And her hard work has paid off: “I started looking different because I’m getting a little bit thicker in the muscles,” she says. “It’s not that slim look, and I’m really proud of that.”

Like any strong woman knows, year-round body confidence is no easy feat—and for our May/June cover athlete, a red carpet is always around the corner. To survive, and thrive, in an industry where she’s always front and center, she commits to a balanced routine 365 days a year.
