MIA KANG

January 1, 2018
Mia Kang is a professional Muay Thai fighter and international model. The half Korean, half English beauty was born and raised in Hong Kong. Now, she lives between New York and Thailand. She’s making an impact by championing for body diversity. Meet the inspirational Mia.

ON WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT MUAY THAI:
“I love that it’s so humbling. I love that you can never know everything. There’s not one person who knows it all, you can always be better and that’s so humbling in itself.”

WHEN SHE FEELS MOST EMPOWERED:
“People would think I’d say when I’m fighting but I actually think I feel most empowered when I’m around other strong women. There’s nothing that makes you feel like you can take over the world than when you’re with other strong women. I think it’s so inspiring and so motivating.”

ON HER MULTIPLE UNIVERSITY DEGREES:
“I have a Bachelor of Economics, Bachelor of Philosophy and a Masters degree in Finance & Financial Law. Again, there are no limitations. You can be an athlete, an academic and sexy. You can be all the Spice Girls.”

ON HER NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS:
“I have little mini goals. One of the ones I had last year was to do a TED Talk. This year I want to go to South America, I’ve never been there before. I also want to do my first magazine cover in the US, my first movie – a bunch of little stuff.”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR HER:
“I definitely want to do my PHD to become Dr Kang. I thought about doing it in aesthetics, which is a branch of philosophy. But again, who knows. If a year ago, you told me I’d be here sitting in Sydney in front of this amazing view, I would’ve laughed in your face… so I don’t know! I’ll continue exploring the different dimensions of myself. Whether that be going into the business world, going into motherhood, taking my education further, whatever it is, I just want to try and reach my potential.”
