Mary Kom: The Epitome of Women Empowerment


No matter how humble your backdrop is, it does not matter. If one possesses the true passion and the potential of creating a mark on the lives of other people, then you'll always find ways to achieve what you jostle for. Such an illustration of concocting sparks in the lives of others was done by Mary Kom.

She was born in the small village of Kangathei, Manipur and her parents worked as labourers on a farm. She was shouldered with responsibility from an early age; working and taking care of her siblings was a part and parcel of her life. Even though she quit her studies very early in life but it did not stop her from pursuing her dreams.

Fate took a turn for her when she won a Gold Medal in Asian Games in 1998. There was a vivaciousness in her life and she pursued her career as a professional boxer. A decision that would change her life. Against all the hurdles she fought back to be what she wanted to become. Even though her parents considered that boxing was not for her because she was a young girl and it is generally associated with masculinity. It did not stop her in any way from becoming the 5 times National Boxing Champion in a row.
