Eve Torres talks about being discriminated against, whats next for her
Sep 6, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
Eve Torres did an interview with HispanicBusiness.com – here are a few exerts:
HispanicBusiness.com: Have you ever experienced any discrimination for being a female or Latina? Please explain.
Eve Torres: Absolutely. I have been in a “man’s” world as long as I can remember. I was an engineering major in college, I am a sports entertainer in the WWE, and I teach self-defense. I can’t tell you the number of times I have been underestimated, objectified or deprived of fair credit for my accomplishments based on my gender or ethnicity. We can either be discouraged by these societal limitations, or we can overcome them and strengthen our will to succeed.
HispanicBusiness.com: What’s next for you?
Eve Torres: Besides continuing to take WWE by storm and starring in a blockbuster action flick, my number-one priority is using this platform to influence others in a positive way. I am a head instructor of the Gracie Women Empowered self-defense program, and I am committed to helping other women realize their fullest potential through physical and psychological empowerment. I know the secrets, and I won’t stop until women everywhere know them too!
