There is no sun without shadow
As a child my mother was a victim of domestic violence at the hands of my father and growing up fear was closely associated with him. Being powerless to the violence that fear became a part of many parts of my reality. As I grew up cinema became a great love for me, the screen became a comfort to me and in hindsight a distraction for me to avoid the real world. My mother's ability joke about and overcome her personal trauma is a result of her facing and surviving it. I fought in an MMA fight earlier this year, I wanted to embrace the intensity of a real fight and follow my mother's example of facing my fears.
