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.

Pretty Isn't Enough... Saturday, January 20

Shhhh... I'm going to let you in on a secret. Are you listening?!

Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in this world as a woman. 

There I said it. So go and let pretty be every other girl walking down the street, but not you. Instead, strive to be pretty strong, pretty smart, pretty inspirational. Be pretty badass at setting and smashing your goals, raising the standards, breaking down stereotypes, and making yourself better every damn day. Try to be pretty kickass cool with motivating others to better themselves too by being supportive, open and real. 

Whatever and whoever you want to be, that's your choice but don't limit yourself to only being just another pretty face girl when there's so much more you can be. Push yourself, do more, be more. 

Find your purpose and be pretty badass awesome at it.
