Beauty, brains and brawn – fighting depression

Why take up boxing?

It’s something I’ve always been interested in. I also find it very therapeutic and really enjoy the fitness side of getting into it.

Who inspires you?

I draw inspiration from life. I’m really lucky to know such a large network of amazing people and to be surrounded by positive energy on a daily basis is a huge help. It’s very much about making the most of what you have and I think that’s the key to my inspiration.

What’s harder – fighting in the ring or in the corporate world?

They both have their challenges, physically boxing is one hell of a sport, I honestly take my hat off to the athletes who compete regularly. It’s extremely grueling on the body and a lot more of a challenge than I expected.

Beauty, brains and brawn – what’s next for you?

The world! Haha, seriously, I go with the flow and just enjoy life. I’m in a good place mentally, so who really knows where it could lead – anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Kira-Lea will take part in the Black-tie Gala Corporate Fight Night on April 4 at the Sofitel Wentworth. She is also fundraising for beyondblue. beyondblue is working to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in the community by raising awareness and understanding, empowering people to seek help, and supporting recovery, management and resilience.
