What Youth & Educators Are Saying...

Zoe Sebastian, VP Marketing, DECA U

"Kelly is an incredible speaker and our delegates really benefited from seeing a young person like her who is so successful and so passionate. It inspires them to dream big and take chances, and to follow their passions in a world where, as Kelly said it best, you will hear a lot of ‘No's’ and it can sometimes be very discouraging."

More on Kelly...

Craig Zimmer, TED-Ed Innovative Educator

“I invited Kelly to come and address over 850 students at our TEDxStMaryCSSchool event. I expected an amazing talk, but what I got was so much more. Kelly blew the audience of grades 7-12 students away with her uplifting and powerful message on the true power of youth. Kelly is a dynamic, exciting and energetic speaker who instantly draws the audience in with her words and her genuine demeanour. In the end, students who heard her talk told me that they ‘felt excited by the possibilities’ and ‘Kelly’s talk made me believe that I can do anything if I believe in me."

Andrew Macallum, Vice Principal, Grand River Collegiate Institute

“Kelly provided a relevant and engaging session for our Secondary School Vice Principal Association. With real-life examples and suggestions for schools and teachers, Kelly’s enthusiasm provided a spark for the audience, provoking discussion and questions about overcoming the challenges school communities face on the path to success. Her point of view was refreshing, particularly regarding her strong advocacy for students to volunteer.”
