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.

Sista Love

Reaping some Lil' Sistas hoodies in support of the Lil' Sista Project.  Thanks ladies!!!
An afternoon of boxing with my Lil' Sistas at the Center of Hope.
Probably about 10 seconds after this picture was snapped, they all crashed in exhaustion after totally killing their workout and ending with a plank challenge.  And then, as for the little cutie tugging on my arm, 10 seconds after this photo, she jumped on my back.  
The Lil' Sistas at the Center of Hope know I coach a second group of Lil' Sistas at an orphanage and today they put their names on the poster alongside the others. 
These girls are awesome, they're so incredibly resilent, and I'm blessed to be coaching them.
