In an interview with NowThis, Lee explained the similarities between herself and the iconic character.
“She’s this really cool, like, warrior princess, and that’s really what I kind of see in myself, like, when I go out to fight and how I’m so close to my family. So everything really ties in together, and it connects,” the 23-year-old said.
Lee has been one of the top leaders in the women’s mixed martial arts movement, and she continues to influence a new generation with her words and actions.
The Hawaii-based Singaporean understands her impact on the global stage, and she takes pride in being a force for change.
“I can win more and more fights, but really what’s most important to me is how I can influence the most people, how I can really impact people’s lives in a positive way,” Lee said.
“Honestly, I’m so honored. I could never imagine that I’d grow up, and I’d be doing something like this and making these kinds of changes in the world.”
