Our Episode 20 guest, Monique Maguire, shares how martial arts helped her build self-confidence and emotional resilience initially after experiencing trauma, but also through all life’s challenges. Her drive for competing is also matched by her passion for teaching and empowering others, and she is firm believer in building people up rather than stripping them down. Monique also discusses her mental health struggles, and how she hopes that by being vulnerable and open, she can inspire others.
