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.

Strong Women Worthy of More than Heroine Titles

Sister Wennie... definitely a lady I'd honor on National Hero Day here in the Philippines and every day after that.  I'd even honor the Lil' Sista beside me, for just how resilent she is.  She is one of the very first Lil' Sistas I met and it's because of her and the others I met that day that I launched the Lil' Sistas Project.
And definitely these two too -- Sheryl and Cecilia.
