To help spread the word about the "Be A Mentor" program, WWE Superstar Lacey Evans recently spoke with the folks from the Post And Courier for an in-depth interview.
Featured below are some of the highlights.
On the number one mentor in her life: "There was a Master Sergeant Oliver who, to this day, has been the No. 1 mentor in my life. From the minute he woke up and showed up to work, he was just motivated, he was inspiring, and he showed me that life’s going to be hard, but we have to be harder and confront it head on. So to this day he’s probably the one that I call if I feel like I need a pick-me-up or somebody to kick me in the butt and tell me to keep going."
On school being her escape growing up: "There’s a lot more going on within the homes. When I was growing up, school was my escape. I would wake up and I would be at that school bus earlier than ever, waiting to get the heck out of my situation. When that school bus came back to pick me up, I was sick to my stomach. I didn’t want to go home. It was misery. It was anger."
On the need for a mentor in a young persons life: "I think now more than ever, these kids need these mentors to be the voice that they need to hear for them to push through and realize what they’re capable of. It doesn’t matter what situation they’re in. Sometimes that voice can really impact the entire lives of these children. I think it’s incredible what this program is doing."
