Square Up – Surviving the Ring & Yourself – Round 2

Check out this clip from our 2nd annual collaboration with MatchBout Boxing! “Square Up: Surviving the Ring & Yourself” is more than an event; it’s a movement created to empower women from all walks of life to exercise their mind, body, and spirit.  Stay tuned for Round 3!

“I took every dream I ever had
pushed them inside a duffle bag
engraved with my daughter’s initials
and carried them with me
until it was safe to believe in them again
I promise you, Dear Broken Woman,
I used to be you
Until the day I looked into
my daughter’s eyes
and realized
she couldn’t wait to be me”

– Neisha H. aka Beautiful Dizaster
