Tammara Thibeault was only 10 years old when she started boxing. Originally, it was an activity that her older brother and father were doing together for fun, but eventually, she ended up going with them on a regular basis. When her brother quit the sport, she stuck to it and never looked back since! At first, she wanted to try boxing because her father is her greatest source of inspiration and she wanted to be just like him. Over the years, she developed a true passion for the sport. She wasn’t very good at other sport and for once, she was told she had potential for her chosen combat sport, which motivated her to become the best she could be. Boxing has taught her the importance of patience, perseverance and dedication. For a long time, the boxing club was the only place where she felt comfortable enough to truly be herself, hence helping her build her confidence while growing up.
Beside her career as an athlete, Tammara obtained her CEGEP degree and she is currently completing her Bachelor in Linguistics as well as two minors in Mandarin and Spanish. Afterwards, she will pursue her Masters in Business and Administration.
She doesn’t know exactly where she will be in ten years from now, but if she could choose her future, she pictures herself traveling around the world discovering different cultures, languages and taking every opportunity that present itself. She would love to teach English, French or even Spanish in another country, preferably somewhere warm by the beach! She would also like to give back to the community and help more deprived communities in South America.
