I am so blessed. I have a beautiful family, mommy, daddy, sister, 2 brothers and 2 grandmothers. I love you so much. You mean the world to me. I know I will make you proud one day. I know I will return everything you did and sacrificed for me one day soon. I love you. I love you. I love you. Thank you God for my coach @firas_zahabi who invited me from Croatia all over to Canada, Montreal to train at the Tristar Gym (where I feel so grateful to share the mats with so many great athletes and true fighters) and welcomed me when I only turned 15 years old. He believed in me and saw a potential when I was a baby only and now all I want to do is to win and make him proud to stay in my corner. I am so grateful that I will represent your gym, coach! Now I turned 19 and I just signed with the biggest MMA organization for women @invictafc and what can I say more… I am happy, I am humble. I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me!!!!!!! ❤ I will be the first Croatian woman to sign with Invicta FC, that is kinda cool😇 We hope that everything will be perfect! I got this! 🌹 #croatia #croatian #canada #tristar #gym #fight #fighter #wmma #mma #muaythai #kickboxing #boxing #bjj #grappling #wrestling #invicta #invictafc @shanknapp I have to say thank you to one person more… it is my manager @jimwalter216 who is the one of the best guys in this business and he is also a manager to a @ufc champion @stipemiocicufc … He will be my guardian angel from now on, I am so happy to have you in my team and I can not wait to start working with you and accomplish so much in future!!!!!!! ❤❤❤
