BLACKBELTBEAUTY MUSE Q+A WITH THE DANGEROUS BEAUTY WHO EMPOWERS WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD: EVE TORRES GRACIE
Powerhouse. That’s one very fitting word to give you a glimpse of the woman that is, Eve Torres Gracie.
Just as the beauty of a rose is created through its many layers, Eve continues to unfold remarkable tiers of a diverse and inspiring woman- one who consistently believes and achieves throughout her life. She is a USC graduate with a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering (aka smart AF), a life long athlete, an entertainer, an educator, an entrepreneur, a new mother and a loving wife. It’s no wonder why this incredible woman is a BlackBeltBeauty Muse.
Many know Eve from her years entertaining millions of fans worldwide as a WWE Diva, while others around the world know her as their empowered and caring instructor who teaches the skills one needs to defend themselves in a potential life threatening scenario. Throughout the year Eve travels around the world with her husband and ultimate teammate, Rener Gracie, teaching the effectiveness of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and their Women Empowered self defense program. Their unprecedented instruction has positively impacted the lives of thousands, if not millions of people to date (myself included).
Eve’s demand in the entertainment world keeps her busy exercising her “bad-assary” on screen. With ass-kicking roles like her appearance as “Dasha” in Jackie Chan’s, major motion film “Skiptrace” or her fight scene as “Maxima “in the hit TV show “Supergirl,” it is clear that Hollywood respects and values the talents of this real-life superwoman. Through all of the above, Eve’s artistic thirst led her to partner with her talented sister-in-law, Sage Gracie Allard and develop InJOYtheparty, a creative business that specializes in curated themed parties amid an experts touch.
The list goes on because this woman does not stop creating… hence a powerhouse.
Just over a year ago now, Eve and her husband Rener became parents to their first child, Raven Gracie, giving them both the ULTIMATE “stripe” on their life belts.
Courage is another character trait in Eve that was made visible through multiple media channels recently. The new mother of Raven Gracie, shared a powerful messageaddressing the pressure she’s felt (like thousands of women who’ve given birth) to get back to her pre-baby shape and quickly after pregnancy. Her renewed perspective on the subject, expressed her pride and appreciation for having a healthy body and a healthy son- priorities in check.
All of this may surface the question of “how is it possible to accomplish and uphold all of these incredible roles and still have the energy to create more?”
The better question is, “How does Eve do this all day, everyday and still manage to make time for those she cares for with ease in her demeanor and the grace of a composed woman? “
It takes a highly passionate, committed, focused and driven woman to perform on that kind of extraordinary level- all of which make the sum total of Eve equal 360 degrees of the beautiful femme-fatal that she is.
Have a look inside the incredibly inspiring mindset of Eve in the Q+A below.
