Tell us a little about yourself.

Karen: "TMI alert: This seemed too personal to share but I am proud to be part of this team and would want people who are going through what i went through be aware that there are programs out there that can change lives like Wimp 2 Warrior.

I used to have pretty bad depression prior to joining Wimp 2 Warrior. It came to a point where I thought I cant accomplish anything, Im not good at anything, Im fat and etc. - I hated myself. However, I do find that training keeps my mind off of depressing things, problems, stress, and it keeps me active and healthy. Theres just something about training that makes me feel so….. alive!!

When I heard about W2W I thought, this would be the best opportunity for me to better myself - physically and mentally. I wanted to prove myself that I can accomplish anything and be good at something as long as my mind is in it."
