Sarah Evans says her poor choices finally caught up with her one night in august of 2003.
"When i woke up 13 years ago, it was probably one of the hardest things i ever had to look at, was my body. I'm covered in scars from head to toe."
This is the slide show Evans uses during her presentations. She likes to show students the person she use to be, someone she says died in that crash.
"My first thoughts were, okay when I realized i was in my own drunk driving crash. did i kill anybody? And when I realized how thankful I was that that wasn't apart of my plan my next thought. I'm going to speak. I knew, right when I woke up out of my coma that's what i wanted to do."
Evans has been giving motivational speeches to students of all ages around the Midwest for 11 years now. And she makes sure to do every presentation in a tank top and shorts.
"You go out and do what I did and you make the decisions that I did you could end up looking like this. I think my presentation would come across a lot different if I did it in a t-shirt and jeans. It wouldn't make the impact."
Evans hopes this will help PSU students think twice before getting behind the wheel.
