I am SO excited to share with you Made Woman Magazine!

What is Made Woman Magazine you ask? Well, Made Woman Magazine was founded in 2009 by Lindsey Day and Serena Watson (fellow USC Trojans!!). Troubled by the lack of diverse representations of females in magazines, they set out with a unique vision to create a platform for young professional women to connect and grow together. Together, they built the Made Woman team: a collective of strong, witty and opinionated women devoted to writing about the issues that affect women’s daily lives. More than two years later, Made Woman is becoming a lifestyle brand focused on spreading positivity, humor, and relevant information throughout the digital world and beyond.

As you know I place tremendous value in sisterhood and women empowerment and Made Woman Magazine truly embodies this! I encourage all you BeliEVErs out there to get involved , sign up, and most important pledge to support this initiative!

Check out this awesome video, in which I am featured as a Made Woman.

Here are some behind the scene’s pictures from the video shoot:

Take a moment to check out this new video!

Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women – a program that changed my life so significantly that I now dedicate myself to teaching it. In this 15-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant.

Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women Empowered program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents.

Once you complete the Women Empowered program, you may take a timed proficiency test, and should your performance meet Gracie Academy standards, you will be awarded the pink belt as a symbol of your accomplishment!

Last week Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, Stephanie McMahon and I had the honor of visiting the South Bronx Academy, where we took part in a Be A STAR rally.

Bullying is something that at some point we’ve all encountered… whether we’ve been a victim of bullying ourselves, or whether we’ve witnessed it. Either way, it’s an issue that is personally very dear to my heart, and I encourage you all to get involved in the fight against bullying. To find out more about the Be A Star program and how to start a chapter at your school, visit

Check out this video of our experience at the South Bronx Academy:

Here’s another video; blogger Micah Jesse (@MicahJesse) interviews Sheamus, Mark Henry, Alberto Del Rio and myself at the rally! For the full story from his blog click here.

Today, I’m setting you all the same challenge I set the participants of this Be A Star rally- and that is to send a positive message to someone on facebook or twitter today!

Please take a moment to watch this video;

Congress must act now to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the landmark achievement in the movement to end violence against women and girls!

The Violence Against Women Act revolutionized the way violent crimes against women are prosecuted and prevented, and in addition reshaped the way victims receive services and transformed the way communities respond to survivors.

We cannot afford for the reauthorization of VAWA not to pass. For more information on how you can take action visit

BeliEVErs, while today marks the end of National Sexual Assault Awareness month, this does not mean that our dedication to the cause or to awareness should falter! For more information on the program I’m involved with, the Gracie Women Empowered program, visit here.
