“As a kid, I played with the boys- and only played physical games with the girls… loved action movies.
Today I get paid to look like I can actually fight, but I actually just found new ways to play with the boys and girls who like to play like me. Girls like @jujuchanszeto who are faster and stronger than me! 🥰,” wrote Pearl Thusi.
Pearl Thusi also took the time to thank the “boys” who teach her and let her pretend to beat them up.
“😂😂😂 – and thank you for the people who give me the opportunity to continue making the child in me happy and seen.
“Additionally- the guy training us actually trains champions- real fighters would kill to have him as a teacher but here he is- teaching Muaythai to amateurs like me- with passion and care. What a champ. Lastly – tell black Twitter to catch me outside,” said Pearl Thusi.
