Growing up I wasn't one to hang out with the neighborhood kids. I was quiet, kept to myself, but I became fascinated with Boxing because I would hear loud noises and cheering coming from downstairs or the basement when my aunts and uncles would come over. I started sitting on the staircase peeking, listening, and cheering until I got in trouble for not being where I was suppose to. After years of being told Boxing wasnot a "lady like" sport, I became determined to be a boxer. I didn't know how or where to start. I would go to gyms only to be told that women could not come into because we would be too distracting for the real fighters. This only encouraged me to try and fulfill my dream. I studied, read, listened, and watched boxing with my uncles. I had all the stats, bios, etc. I finally went to my first fight. I remember asking the boxer after the fight to take me to his gym because the gyms wouldnt let me in. The rest is history.... I fought 7 times and won 6 of them. I had accomplished and fulfilled my dreams. I had no desires to become famous nor an old fighter. I knew when to quit. Once I had accomplished that dream I started teaching young women and men to box. It all started in my basement. I spoke to troubled girls about their anger issues. I taught them how to channel it into a way that was positive. Knowing how to box gives you a higher power. Young women can do and achieve any goals they wish to. TITLE Boxing Club has allowed me to dream a little more by continuing my passions for boxing and teaching. I enjoy each client. I have the option to teach technique and helping other clients to become more fit. I have fun and I enjoy what I do.
