“Every child on this earth deserves the chance to live and learn and thrive in a safe space. I survived, I succeeded, but I am not a statistic,” said Evra in New York.
“I have built a life that I love but I know I am an exception. Now my focus is on ending the violence against children, fighting for the opportunity of a billion children. What could be a greater opportunity, what could be a greater privilege?
“I ask you today to share that mission.”
