ABOUT THE TALK

Kimberly’s goal to inspire and empower youth to be more accepting of others began with the birth of her little sister, Kassidy, who was born with Down Syndrome. Kassidy has enabled Kimberly to see the world from another perspective and has shown her the need for a better understanding and acceptance of others. Kimberly believes that it takes one person to start a movement, but that together we can change the world.
