Rebecca Welsh was raised a fighter and became a World Champion martial artist at the age of 21. Shortly after, during a mission trip, she committed to fighting for someone other than herself. She met a girl named Daisy who was living on the streets at the age of 6. At 24 years old, Rebecca created The HALO Foundation to support children like Daisy. HALO is a non-profit that currently supports 21 orphanages and programs for 1200 children in six countries around the world.
