Jaslene Gonzalez, winner of last year's America's Next Top Model, says she has always been a mentor.
In high school, the future model was the girl who counseled friends. And now she's ready to do so again: Gonzalez has signed on as the spokeswoman for the "Love is Not Abuse" campaign, created by Liz Claiborne.
The campaign provides information and tools that men, women, children and teens can use to become educated on how to prevent abuse and how to recognize the signs. The company created a free curriculum for use in schools to help increase knowledge of teen dating abuse and violence, and how to stop it.
"It's going to save lives and help people; using my voice, hopefully they feel I can help educate people," Jaslene said.
