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.

Lil' Sistas Big Awesomeness

I love this -- her hand is so small that even the word "Slay" is too big for her knuckles.
They look pretty fierce, I love that, but they're so incredibly sweet.
 I think the best thing I ever did in my life is reach out and start the Lil' Sistas Project.

I wouldn't say that I coach these girls for free though because what I get from
them is priceless and it's like nothing else I've ever gotten in return.
Oh gosh, let me tell you about this picture.  I posed to them a challenge -- how long can they hold a squat for.  Turns out it was way longer than I thought so now I have a lot of promised prizes to bring them next time.  Proud coach moment.
I had a smaller crew of Lil' Sistas to coach tonight, only 22.
...twenty-two little fierce females that ooze with awesomeness.
