Inspiration can be found everywhere on this team but I have special admiration for @hollyholm and @karatehottiemma. Holly could have rested on her achievements long ago but she’s never stopped working and pushing to better herself. She also has incredible perseverance. Even when she’s been knocked down she’s right back up and after it. That tenacity is inspiring. Michelle inspires me because she stayed true to her dreams and continued to fight even when the spotlight had not yet found her. She’s a great fighter and an incredible mother and it makes me so happy she’s getting her chance to shine. These two amazing lionesses are a huge part of the positivity and leadership at @jacksonwink_mma and are great role models for young girls to look up to.
It takes a village. This I know to be true. The city of Albuquerque has been incredible to me and my family and shown tremendous support to me throughout my career, but I haven’t always given it back. That changes now. I know a lot of people in this community struggle to get by and I’m taking steps to help. I’m donating backpacks filled with the complete list of school supplies to Robert F. Kennedy Charter Middle School. Change is never easy but I’m learning what it takes to make a difference. So much love to @majin__tu @monicamerk @Christensgram @Mandohernandez @Seoulman34 for helping me get this done.
