WOW. Like capital WOW. You’re so commendable, lady! That’s quite an ordeal you’ve survived! I learn how to box partly for fun and partly because I think women should be able to defend themselves when the need arises. Your story just confirmed that I’m on the right track! You’re absolutely my inspiration, Helen! Thank you for sharing your amazing story! ♥️
