Hey guys! Welcome to my blog. My main purpose is not only to educate the public on the issue of violence against women and gender discrimination but also share my experiences with my service towards eliminating this issue. This summer of 2015, I traveled to India to teach self defense and women empowerment to girls and women in both rural villages and urban settings.
As a second degree black belt in Taekwondo, I am teaching nearly 500 girls a day techniques for defending themselves. So far, my experience has been phenomenal. Working in the villages has given me a genuine personal perspective on how little people in the world survive with and given me the opportunity to appreciate what I have and continue to give back. By working and talking with the girls from the village, I've gained intriguing insights on the state of gender equality in rural settings across India.
I look forward to sharing my passion, experiences, and more with you in the next few weeks! Hopefully (whenever I get the chance to access internet!) I'll post a few times a week.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading.
