Petra Nemcova on "Dancing with the Stars": "My heart and my mind is in Japan"

Petra Nemcova told her emotional story of survival and recovery to Piers Morgan last night, but in this Green Room Q&A after she talked about her upcoming appearance on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." "The reason to be on 'Dancing with the Stars' was for me to shine a light on children who are forgotten after natural disasters," she said. "Dancing with purpose and now the purpose is even deeper, more relevant."

How has Nemcova been able to focus in the wake of the Japan tragedy?

"It has been quite difficult emotionally to try to focus on dancing when my heart and my mind is in Japan, but I know that through dancing and being on the show I'm able to help so many more children," she said.

As for training with partner Dmitry Chaplin – who finished 2nd last year – she tells us: "We will try our best. We will enjoy the journey. He is a fantastic dancer, obviously a professional...I may not have a dancing background but I'm very determined and working very hard."

See more information about Nemcova's charity, Happy Hearts, here and see Nemcova on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday.
