Jennifer "The Pay-It-Forward Hero"
"One year in college while at a Rugby tournament, I ended up attending my first ever women’s boxing match at one of the local bars. I was instantly hooked. I happened to be standing next to a boxing scout who, tickled by my enthusiasm, asked me if I would try out for boxing. Long story short, he had watched me play rugby earlier that day and said that I did not hit like a girl. I soon signed on and became a Women’s Professional Boxer for the WIBF. (Not bad for a girl who had to be the sports manager in high school)
In 2015, I realized how sick I was of being a struggling single mom. I wanted to do something to help others. I started a pay-it-forward group on Facebook called 'Kansas City Heroes'. My group was designed to help people with disabilities, senior citizens, and single-parent homes by providing acts of kindness. We are a grassroots organization that wants to get the “pay it forward” message out.
It does not take a lot of money to help someone in need, just a lot of love and compassion. We can all deal out some of that!"
