“I’m trying to use my social media as a way to communicate that I’m flawed and that I’m okay with it,” Gina tellsWomen’s Health.“It’s a very strange feeling to be okay with a little cellulite or a little extra anything. I don’t look at it and feel terrified anymore, and my confidence changed because of that. I carry myself differently.”

"It’s like we women consciously decide we’re going to be mean to ourselves,” she observes. “But you’re your own hero, not some image you can’t live up to.”

That confidence has allowed her to push back against body shamers, and defy the societal norms that tell her she must look a certain way to be a leading actress in Hollywood. But Gina admits she hasn't always taken great care of her body.  “I would almost not be conscientious about my health because I wanted to be accepted the way I was—as curvy,” she says.

Now, with Hashimoto’s disease in her life, and aspirations for a long, inspiring career, Gina's putting on her boxing gloves andtaking charge of her own destiny.

“I feel like boxing is very much like acting, except you’re just fighting yourself,” says Gina. “You’re not allowing yourself to be defeated, you’re getting up after you’ve been knocked down, and you have to believe that you can win.”
