So, I may not be the most aggressive person in the world, but I am still a firm believer in girl power. We girls can kick ass, and some of my most treasured childhood heroes were the perfect examples of this.
This may have contributed to one really important part of my life: martial arts. I joined an Isshynryu Karate class for most of high school in an effort to better handle confrontation. When I got to college I joined the Jiu Jitsu class offered there, which on a side note, was probably one of the best decisions of my life (maybe I'll write about that later). Anyway, my point here, is that I love martial arts and they have been extremely influential in helping me gain confidence. However, I really can't deny the real reasons that I started martial arts: Mulan and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
