Ruqsana Begum: World Champion

Not only is Ruqsana Begum one of the best Muay Thai fighters in the world—she’s the only Muslim woman to hold a national kickboxing championship title. She started boxing at the age of 18 and trained in secret for years, fearing that her family wouldn’t approve of her participation in a male-dominated sport. Now, there’s nothing holding her back.

Directing Against All Odds

When Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with ALS, a disease that made him unable to speak or move his body, doctors said he had four years left to live. That was eight years ago. He has since gone on to write a book and make a film, using only his eyes and a computer to create his work and communicate.
