Just Yell Fire

A Tae Kwon Do black belt and Filipino street fighter who can take down a grown man, Jessup says her call to action was the abduction and death of a young girl from Florida.

To empower girls around the world, Jessup played a key role in the production of "Just Yell Fire," a free training video teaching self-protection for young women that has been viewed by 2 million people in 37 countries.

Jessup, who says the girls she meets are what keep her going, also travels to schools around the United States to help instill in young women the knowledge that they have the right to stand up for themselves if facing a scenario like date rape or abduction.
