Why You Should Box

Imagine this, a tall person with long arms showing up to a new boxing class. Yes, this was me a few months ago. I felt like an awkward giraffe who had no idea what to do. In my mind, I thought I looked like Rocky Balboa though. I was a little bit embarrassed at first […]

My Journey to Clear Skin

Growing up as a teenager, I suffered from bad skin. Now, this isn’t just one spot here or there. It was the type of skin that made me want to cancel plans and hide at home. It sounds dramatic but it was red, puffy, and not fun. Not just your typical breakout, we’re talking mountains […]
