Sasha Banks: “as a role model, I have to lead by example”

Jul 2, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

Banks talks about her responsibility as a role model:

“for me, being a role model and a leader is what I have to give back to the universe. It’s not easy to be so exposed and so open and so raw, but I’m here to show people that I’m a real person, too. I am just lucky and fortunate enough to be living my dream in front of millions of people. If that connects with people, if that resonates, all I can do is be myself and hopefully show people that no matter what they go through–whether it’s good, bad, or hard–we’re all in this together. As you can see on social media, I left my comment out there (on Sammy Guevara), I made my statement. I don’t feel like I need to touch upon it any more than I did, but as a role model, I have to lead by example. I can’t show hate with hate. I only can show through education, dignity, and integrity.”
