“I came into this world as a little sister. I came behind 2 sisters who were 2 and 3 years older and 2 and 3 times bigger than me. I came into this world as an innocent competitor. I was bullied for being smaller, dumber or even shyer than anyone else. I can remember being hit in the stomach so hard until I couldn’t pass a cry much less a weeze.
I had a little sister and I knew she would look up to me one day. I learned quickly that no one is going to fight for me, but even my sisters would put me in the positions to get my ass whooped. I learned that if I didn’t take over the situation, then I would become another negative statistic and have to face my Lil sister in shame. Then I became aggressive and hungry to conquer. I stood my grounds, demanded and earned respect as I grew up.
I grew up in Forest, Ms. I went to school, earned good grades and played basketball. My style of play was a lot different because I didn’t think of it as just a game. I would go hard and dare anyone to stop me. Unfortunately, like I stated before No one would fight for me, but even my sisters “teammates” would put me in the position to beat. Our record was horrible and it went nowhere fast. Just another negative statistic. If my success depended on “a team” I would have nothing. I’m not the typical competitor.
I vowed to myself to be smarter, bigger and to stand out from the rest. To dream bigger dreams and live. I started searching for boxing clubs and narrowed my options down. I had the choice to train out of a club 10 mind up the road, but I chose Pearl Boxing Club. I made this decision based on the reviews and the coaching staff.
Once I started training at the pearl boxing club I felt a sense of peace. I then focused on my strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities. Soon I fell in love with the work and realized that’s where my next step to becoming the greatest was; I’ve trained out of the pearl boxing club since Aug. 2014. With the help of my mom and coaching staff, I’ve had 3 bouts with only one loss. My biggest supporters such as Stephaine Spivey, PBC coaches and Rock Wash CEO of GMCR have been my present motivation. I give the glory and honor to God for what he is doing through them and I look forward to taking this to the next level. I would like to thank GMCR for becoming a lead sponsor at the club and sponsoring my book. I am proud to say I will be wearing the logo in and out of the ring!”
