It used to be said that hands of a person dedicated to the art of music were fragile hands.
Well, not with this wba champion hannah reagan, um has shown us, otherwise.
She was born in a picturesque village of lus on the shores of loch lumon, where, where there is nature, all around her um pretty much a mystical space that may have been the inspiration for the 31 year old hannah rankin, who grew up there, uh as a Child she had a great desire to learn: uh contact sport caught her attention uh, so it was at the age of nine.
She took up taekwondo, but body skills were not the only thing that caught her attention.
She also felt the vibration of the risborough child in her chest at school.
She started with the flute and then moved on to the bassoon.
Uh wind instruments became her passion.
She got involved in boxing the first time just for pleasure, of staying physical, which most of these women do, and then they end up getting bit by that bug.
But almost uh unintentionally putting the gloves uh on letter to embark on this path that she has graciously.
