Every once and a while, you meet someone that is truly an inspiration for who she is and what she represents. Christy Mack is one of those people that I feel extremely blessed to know. She represents all the things I want to be: bright, bold, sassy, sexy, resilient and just a general kickass chick.
For those of you unfamiliar with her story, Christy was a victim of a horrific, domestic violence assault by her then boyfriend, a total scumbag named “War Machine”. Christy was a picture of grace, poise and dignity throughout her long and painful road to recovery. She has used her notoriety to advocate for victims of domestic violence, giving a powerful voice to a national epidemic.

I am proud to call her a friend. She’s truly an inspiration.
