When and why did you start training for fighting?  At ten years old, my father dragged me to the nearest Muay Thai gym to learn to protect myself and I never left.

What ranks and titles have you held?  Blue Belt in BJJ, KAMA Champion (Muay Thai) - 16-14-2 (10 wins by KO), BEAT Flyweight Champion, Reigning All FC Flyweight Champion

Do you have any heroes?  First and foremost, GOD comes before anyone in my life.  My trainers Kim Daeryeong and Kim DaeHwan, without them I would not be here today.  In terms of my favorite fighters, when I started fighting, I looked up to Ronda Rousey and now Joanna (Jedrzejczyk).  Since Joanna and I are now in the same weight class, it would be an honor to fight her one day.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?  It still has not sunk in yet and feels like a dream that I don't want to wake up from.  My life has changed forever and it is certainly one of the most important points in my life, if not the most important. I also want to say that my boyfriend is also a fighter and I would love for both of us to fight in the UFC at the same time.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?  I am currently in my second year in College.

What was your job before you started fighting?  I attended a High School that specialized in Nursing so while going to school I would work as an assistant Nurse.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition?  I was an Amateur National Muay Thai Champion of Korea.

Favorite grappling technique:  Ambars and chokes

Favorite Striking technique:  I love throwing elbows.
