Avery's Life Before Omar Albakour

Avery Mills' life before converting to Islam and meeting Omar Albakour is definitely nothing short of exciting. The 90 Day Fiance star was a typical American teenager who enjoys physical activities in school.

Avery used to do artistic gymnastics for her school's team. She's also a pro at trampoline and power tumbling at such a young age. Avery used to be an all-star cheerleader as well.

The reality star has several awards under her belt, winning state and national titles. She's even considered an "elite" on three gymnastics events — trampoline, floor, and double-mini.

Unfortunately, Avery Mills injured herself, which forced her to take a break from the competitive sport. She eventually returned after recovering from her injuries. Avery ultimately retired after her last year in high school.
