Mia’s story is one of strength—both physical and mental—and proof that when you’re finally able to find peace within yourself, amazing things start to happen. Fifteen years in the modeling industry had taken its toll on Mia’s health, and inevitably, she finally reached her limit. Mia knew it was time to take a break. She went to Thailand, planning on staying for a ten day vacation, but stumbled into a Muay Thai studio, and the rest is history. Mia stayed for nine months, training in the sport and working past her anxieties and insecurities. She forgot the standard of beauty that she had so long adhered to, watched her body transform, and learned to love what she saw in the mirror.

I watched my body transform and I was ok with it because it was backed up by this physical strength.

I’m proud of my intelligence, I’m proud of the things that I’ve overcome, I’m proud of being a good person.

I really hope all women explore their strengths because we’re capable of so much.
