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.

Biker Helmets and Boxing Beats

I want this badass helmet... it's awesome!!!
Notice that it's a pile of dandelions, the very thing that's tattooed on my left hand!
And the hot pink, the signature colour of Empowered.
Eventually I'll get a motorcyle or scooter in the Philippines but I want this helmet sooner than later.
Hit the heavy bag at Elorde Boxing tonight, here in Acacia.  I don't like training here.
Nothing makes me feel lonelier than constantly being "the new girl" at a boxing club, 
a place where I've always felt like home.

And so tonight I trained uninterrupted and I trained hard.
