I finished high school and started boxing. I did amateur competitions for a few years before turning professional and I’m currently the North American Boxing Federation Women’s super featherweight champion. When I started boxing, I was working as a gardener at an equestrian facility and I fell in love with plants and horticulture. I met someone from KPU which led me to the Faculty of Science and Horticulture. Going to university is one of the things I am most proud of. I never had plans for pursuing higher education. Studying at KPU has given me confidence in life and gifted me with amazing relationships with both students and teachers. Many of my instructors are like friends, but better because they like to talk about plants.
