Abigaile (Aby) Rulloda (pronounced like her Facebook user name; “Rule Yoda”) is hard to place in an single category, which is why I entered her under several here. She’s a successful model, go-go dancer, ring girl, fashion designer, and competitive kickboxer who happens to be the current WCSC (World Combat Sports Challenge) Super Flyweight Champion.
ABY RULLODA: Thanks to you for having me!
CHRIS: I know you currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Were you born and raised there?
ABY: I was actually born in the Philippines, but arrived in the Bay Area when I was nine years old, so the SF Bay Area is where I call home.
CHRIS: What’s your ethnic background?
ABY: Full Filipina.
CHRIS: So, how did you get the moniker “Bad Aby”?
ABY: That’s always the first question that people ask me… and I always answer… wouldn’t you like to know? Sooo …. wouldn’t you like to know?
CHRIS: (Laughs) Well, yes I would but we’ll move on. I know besides modeling you’re also a go-go dancer, fashion designer, ring girl, and competitive kickboxer who’s the current WCSC Super Flyweight Champion. Which is your number one passion and how did you first get started in it?
ABY: Trying to choose one is difficult… that’s why I do them all. I love them all like I’d love all my children, but right now at this time in my life, fashion design is my main focus because I really want to establish my career in fashion. Everything else is a passion but has an expiration date on it.
CHRIS: I can certainly understand that. So, what are your hobbies and other interests?
ABY: Well, everything that is listed above are all my hobbies. I love to work out, running in particular. I LOVE to dance, all kinds of dance.. it’s such a release for me. I love to travel, I wish I could travel somewhere new every month.
CHRIS: I see your modeling shoots cover a wide variety of themes. Do you have a favorite?
ABY: I haven’t heard of Asian Sirens before ….don’t be mad (smiles). I just want to thank ALL my fans and friends that keep me going ….and of course, thank you Chris!
