Baleinagasau is the daughter of former light welterweight boxer Michael Baleinagasau.

“I enjoy boxing a lot just like the rest of my family, I started boxing when I was 9 it was really interesting for me because my father always watched it and it’s just been a part of me”.

The Saint Joseph Secondary School student says boxing brings her a sense of pride and that there needs to be more women representation in the sport.

“I feel like Fiji needs more female boxers and that I hope to reach a national level”.

A total of 40 children graduated from the Boxing Skills and Fundamentals Workshop.
