As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

A Turn of Events

Was invited to some live fights today by that MMA fighter I met yesterday, Mark,
so today I showed up to cheer on his fighter.

Ended up working his corner and helping him out.
He's Filipino/Mexican from the States and I'm Polish/Austrian from Canada.
We're both mutts, both fighters... and both 125lbs. Well, I'm 1.6lbs bigger... hahaha.
Yesterday morning I didn't know any of these guys.  Today I came having met one of them but 
this afternoon I left feeling like one of their teammates.  I wish them all a safe trip home to the States 
and hope they take only good memories of the Philippines.
