Elise Niu and her husband Ray may be a power couple, running a gym while juggling various projects with raising a happy family, but their journey to get here has been far from perfect. While living overseas half a decade ago, Ray spiralled into a gambling habit that lost the couple tens of thousands of dollars, followed with a devastating drug addiction. It was Elise who saved him.
In 2019 New Zealand’s most read women’s magazine Woman’s Day interviewed the couple for a double-page spread about their raw and heart-warming love story, which is the ultimate tale of triumph over hardship.
