Lacey Evans recently spoke with Post And Courier for an in-depth interview about her upbringing, life on the road with a family and more. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On not letting her difficult upbringing affect her life: “We traveled a lot, so I honestly lived in a tent for a while in Alabama and Louisiana. I spent a lot of time in Texas. I grew up all over the South. My dad just kind of followed construction. Between drugs, it got him in and out of trouble, so we were traveling a lot. I never was anywhere for long.”
On life on the road with her family: “Whether you’re a mom or not, whether you have an addiction or not, whether you’re from poverty or not. It’s so awesome that I can be that one to show women that not only am I a mom, and I shouldn’t be here, but here I am. I want to just give everything I can. It means so much to me in so many different ways.”
On the message she wants to spread to the WWE Universe: “For me my biggest goal is to show the entire world that it does not matter where you come from. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through. You can forget statistics, because statistically I shouldn’t even have a job like this. I probably shouldn’t even be alive. But I did and I’ve made it and I’ve kept my head strong and I’ve pushed through every obstacle that I’ve ever had to face, to include helping other people. So I just want to show the world that between positivity and having a strong mindset you can do and be anything. I was raised in tents and trailer parks and no money, and I still made it.”
