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' Pow Boxing... Monday, April 8

Am pretty sure if there were a day this week that'd kill me it'd be today.

Lil' Sistas in the morning, boxing in the afternoon, and no time to grab lunch in between.

I didn't have any fighters to train today, thank goodness for that, because it is a holiday tomorrow and I was initially suppose to go to Baguio for a Vlog filming with a local company.  My fighters went away for an extra long weekend, the Baguio shot got canceled, and I randomly scored some time with my Lil' Sistas of Taguig.  They always have a packed schedule.  Sister Wennie at Holy Family Home keeps them busy and with them being located here in BGC it's much easier for volunteers to get to.  The Center of Hope located way out of town, yeah, definitely harder to get to and consequently harder to get volunteers to commit to it.

Anyways, I had the Lil' Sistas of Taguig to coach today and they're so super cute.  They're definitely a lot of energy and they all want to bud in line and ask for help.  I appreciate their eagerness though.  They're interested and that's awesome. 

I found out some fabulous news today, a continuation of the news that I am not yet able to share with you.  I was setting stuff up for the Lil' Pow Boxing class with the Lil' Sistas when I found out so I shared it with them.  I know they didn't really understand my news let alone my English but they understood enough to know I was super excited and so they told me congrats.  

Friday, that's when I'll be legally allowed to share my news and, trust me, I'm going to scream it!!!
