Growing up as the only daughter in the family, with 2 brothers, Gladys’s relatives and friends often compared her hobby and passion with theirs. They think that the sport that she’s pursuing (mixed martial arts) can be damaging to her own body and potentially turn her into a more masculine person. As a bullied victim during her younger age, that adversity actually droved her to take part in the sport of Wushu for self-defense purposes. As she retires from Wushu, she started practicing MMA back in year 2015 and get involved into Amature MMA tournament which is MIMMA, first largest MMA Amateur Tournament in Asia. She became a semi-finalist for MIMMA3 women category and currently I am in top 5 in MIMMA5. Despite the injuries, it doesn't stop Gladys from pursuing what she love to do.
When we asked, what drives her, she simply said ‘I feels great as I never regretted on what I have went through in this wonderful fight journey because of martial art that could disciplines me to have a healthy lifestyle and grow as a better person. I believe in life, I am given choices to make thing possible by putting commitment and determination on something we love, it brings me to where I am today.”
