Anna Ndekwe, Female Boxing Coach

Hi my name’s Ana Ndekwe, I’m a Female Boxing Coach and am known as @femaleboxingcoach on Instagram.

I’m here to make women believe in themselves. For me, coaching boxing is all about empowerment, self-belief and good physical and mental health. I want to make women feel their best and help them be their best selves.

I wanted to be a female-only boxing coach because I have that ability to motivate individuals, especially women, reassuring them that they have the ability to be great at boxing, a sport that’s dominated by men. I want to be there to show that you can still box if you’re female.

My method of working is from the inside out. I make you feel good and because you feel good you look good, noo matter your race, your gender or your size.

I am a Level 2 England Boxing Coach, Level 2 Fitness Instructor, Level 3 Personal Trainer, and Level 2 British Sign Language.

Anna Kyriacou, Graphic Designer and Illustrator

I am a freelance senior graphic designer & illustrator based in London, drawing pictures, eating ramen & still listening to pop-punk. My clients include Sanrio, Atlantic Records, Natural History Museum, Shutterstock & The Drum.

Having worked at a design agency for over 6 years I got used to a fast-paced intense atmosphere in which I’ve had to wear a lot of hats (metaphorically and sometimes physically). Now I love the freedom of freelance and excel in taking a project from an initial mood board to a finished piece, whether it’s a logo or a wall mural. My favourite commission to date was a live painting at a Shutterstock event, once the piece was finished I was also a guest speaker discussing the evolution of the design industry.
