What do you do outside of training? I'm on holidays at the moment, so outside of training, I'm training haha! I just left my job at a vegan cafe and I'll be working at my mums patisserie when it opens. I model for drawing classes every now and then too.
What is a surprising fact about you? I once got accepted to be on a reality TV show.
Where do you draw your inspiration from and why? The boss ass babes in my life. My incredible mum, who inspires me every day with her work ethic, talent and creativity. She is AMAZING. My best friends too. Some have moved interstate, one is a new mum, one is running a popular cafe, some are studying at uni. All gorgeous, strong women and I'm so inspired by everything they have overcome and achieved so far in their lives.
If your life were a book, what would be the title? 'I Once Purposefully Tipped Coffee Into My Hand In Front Of The Guy I Was Dating And Other Embarrassing Tales'
Why did you start doing boxing? I used to love the boxing class at my gym above all others on offer, but it was pretty relaxed and I really wanted to learn proper technique. I had tried out the Muay Thai classes at Chopper before and although I really liked the people and environment, Muay Thai wasn't for me. When I saw that Chopper was offering boxing classes, I signed up STRAIGHT AWAY and haven't looked back.
What advice can you give to new students joining up who have never trained? It's normal to feel awkward or self conscious so don't stress, just concentrate on what you're doing because everyone around you felt that same way when they started. Focus on what your coach tells and shows you, take your time. Practice the things you learnt when you get home (find a sibling and let loose), be patient with yourself, come to training regularly and DO NOT GIVE UP!
Do you want to fight? Why or why not? I do want to fight, but I have a long way to go before then. Right now I have aspirations to compete in a Bikini Comp, but the more I train at Chopper, the less sure I am about that goal..
