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.

Christmas Fail... Monday, December 25

When I think of the people I have to prove wrong, the ones who will never respect my dream, understand my struggles, or simply be happy for me being happy, it breaks my heart to know that I added a close family member to that list today, on Christmas.  And out of all the sweetest and totally unexpected acts of kindness that was shown to me this Christmas, this is how I'll remember it, Christmas 2017.

"A" for effort, "F" for fail.
