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.

Boxing and Business on Overdrive

I was doing abs ringside today when I looked up and caught this scene.
It felt like a replay of a scene from many moons ago back in Korea, 
at my first boxing club -- UP Boxing Club.  
He's like the Filipino version of my teammate Jae Myoung back at UP.  His name is Roman 
and he's fighting out in Japan in a couple of days so he's still training hard up until fight day.
From boxing to business, sporting my name and club on my clothes, books in hand and, of course, food also in hand.  Life of an athlete, life of an entrepreneur... the juggle is real, the struggles are many.
