    Arron Carlton: What do you ultimately hope to accomplish in this business?

    Mia Yim: I hope to make it in WWE or TNA... Making wrestling an actual career... It would be fun.

    Arron Carlton: There has been a lot of emphasize the "diva look," in making it to the WWE, and TNA to a lesser extent. You are definitely unique, in that you are half black and Korean. Do you see that as a negative or positive?

    Mia Yim: I see it as a positive and negative. I don't believe I have the "Diva Look". I am convinced they want the Tan, Blonde, White, Blue Eyed chick. I'm just another girl trying to wrestle. Its a positive in a way because I am different. But it also leads to the negative because I'm different.

    Arron Carlton: Who are some of your current favorites in the WWE and TNA?

    Mia Yim: In WWE it would have to be Evan Bourne and Beth Phoenix. In TNA, It would be Samoa Joe and Hamada

    Arron Carlton: To all those aspiring wrestlers out there, what advice do you have for them?

    Mia Yim: Never give up. You will have alot of low points where you want to just give up but stick with it. There will be alot of jealous people trying to bring you down, but they are just jealous. Follow your dream, no matter what.

    Arron Carlton: Thank you for your time!
