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.

The Center of It All

Had an interview today with some high school students.
I had warned them that my schedule was super tight so the crew of them showed up an hour early.
Much thanks to them for their donation to the Lil' Sistas Project -- over 100 bottles of soya milk!!!
Starting the session of boxing with the Lil' Sistas off with reciting the Empowered Creed.
These girls are awesome, if I haven't said it enough.  They're so resilient and I feel like every time I come here, I'm learning more about them but also becoming that more protective and prouder of them.
They are tomorrow's warrior women in-the-making.
And they're definitely not to be underestimated.
Always a good time with them but it always goes by so fast.
