Quote: “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is yours.”

Hobby/Interest: Music, sports, reading, writing, philosophy, spending time with family and friends.

What made you want to join Women’s Boxing? “I love to challenge myself and learn new skills. I also have to admit, I love the rush of blocking a hit (…or getting hit) and eventually delivering an amazing punch.”
