SMART: UNAFFECTED BY ABDUCTION
Elizabeth Smart, whose abduction from her bedroom and reunion with her family nine months later made her name and face familiar to millions, said in her first public interview that she hasn't changed that much from the girl she was before. I think there's some things different about me, but I think I'm still pretty much the same person, the 15 year old told NBC's Katie Couric in an interview aired Friday. It's not like I was, like, all happy and all of a sudden I come back and I'm not, because I'm still happy, she said. It's the same person....It's like it never happened.
