28, Pro­fes­sional MMA Fighter and Doc­tor How do you jug­gle your two pas­sions? Be­ing an ath­lete—an MM A fighter—and a doc­tor can be stress­ful. It rain a lot and some­times I just want to do‘ reg­u­lar girl’ things! But I would never stop the sport; there’ s still so much more I can ex­plore.

How of­ten do you train? Af­ter work­ing a crazy shift at the hos­pi­tal, I would go train when­ever pos­si­ble, even ifit’ s just for an hour. One flaw that you’ve turned into strength? Com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween coach and fighter is es­sen­tial. I keep to my­self a lot but I’ ve be­come bet­ter at ex­press­ing my­self, in or­der to im­prove. How do you keep your­self mo­ti­vated? See­ing t he hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of my coaches and team­mates fuel me. The most up lift­ing mo­ment? Right af­ter I lost a fight, some­one from the crowd screamed“It’ s okay I ce Comet ( my nick­name), you will come back stronger! ”. I was moved to tears . What is em­pow­er­ment, to you? Be­ing bold and div­ing head­first into your pas­sions , what­ever they are.
