Kate suffered for six years at the hands of her peers as a victim of bullying. She was harassed, humiliated, and physically assaulted. She was the subject of vicious rumors, exclusion, and was cyberbullied.
Kate’s speeches are real, honest, and eye-opening. Kate describes her experiences as a victim of bullying in vivid detail and leaves her viewers stunned. The bullying Kate endured was vicious, cruel, and left lasting scars.
Kate has turned her trauma in to activism in hopes that no child will ever have to endure what she once did.
