Sport and training was a large part of my youth.  I played ringette and basketball competively from the time I was really young throughout high school.  I don't think I'd be the person I am today without the benefits and values I learned from sport; hard work, focus, respect for your peers, self esteem, and positive fun.  A lot of who I am and what I've achieved is due to sports and that's why Aprons for Gloves is important to me. I would like to give back by sharing the opportunities and values of sport to at risk women and youth in my community.

Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing. Based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the organization was developed by a small group of professionals and entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to re-establish a historic boxing program for at-risk women and youth. The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities. The sport of boxing teaches discipline, respect, hard work and self-control. Training results in positive self-esteem, good health and camaraderie for its practitioners.
