It’s not every day that you see the words fashion model and Muay Thai fighter in the same bio, but that’s exactly what Mia Kang juggles for a living. To add to that, the international model has completed a master’s degree in finance and financial law and spent time working as a commodities trader.
Born in Hong Kong to a British father and a South Korean mother, Kang studied at the international Island School as a teenager, but has revealed in interviews that she never felt like she fit in with other kids. “I grew up as an obese kid and teenager,” she told Yahoo Style. “I was heavily bullied in school.
