Jessica Lewis is a woman of many talents and there is good enough evidence to validate this fact. She started off modelling in the UK as a young woman and gained a lot of appreciation during her career as a model. Travelling across the world helped her explore her choices better and made her feel she could do so much more for the community. Being always passionate about fundraising and community work, she entered the boxing field to raise money for the ‘holiday of a lifetime’ for less privileged kids of a children’s home. She trained to fight along with the other boxers and the final event was a complete sell-out. She won her fight and the children won their first ever holiday to African Safari. After this, her boxing career kick started and she had shows as a presenter all over the UK. She interviewed Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and a lot of other boxing champions. She then trained for the cage, and had two successful fights. Along with this she also achieved victories in her majority of fights. 

Like all good things that come to an end unfortunately, her boxing career was short-lived after the guy she was dating, Michael Norgrove died after a boxing match, Jessica fought two weeks later for the final time. She continued with the cage and was sponsored by Gracie barra for Brazialian Jiu Jitsu, but then was forced to quit a year later when she developed arthritis and was restricted from fighting. While suffering from this emotional blow, she was introduced to Shamanism and the healing powers of meditation. From experiencing the glamour of modelling, to the thrill of the boxing field she was amazed to discover the newly found peace and tranquility she experienced from Shamanism. She rediscovered herself and adopted meditation as a lifestyle and promised herself to help people heal the way she did.
