Mina: The Fighter

Mina Ghale is a working class woman from Gorkha who tolls days and nights in a factory to make sure that she has enough food on her plate and that she can feed and educate her daughters.

Mina is, also, a national level boxer who is vying for her first ever gold medal. More than winning a gold medal, fighting the trauma of her own past, is Mina’s drive.

Her father died when she was 12 and the same year her mother left to go abroad to work. After an abusive marriage that ended in a divorce Mina had no other choice but to face and fight every situation she would then encounter in life.

For someone like Mina, everything is a struggle and everything is a fight; physically and mentally.
