“I want people to know that your (negative) experiences do not have to define you. Trauma carries a negative impact on our minds and bodies, but it can also strengthen a person by building resiliency, hope, and creativity. The mind and body are miraculous–they find a way to survive unimaginable hardship and stress.”
K.D. is pursuing a degree in both business and neuroscience, preparing herself to accomplish her dream of opening up a non-profit business school for women in poverty. She is passionate about finding innovative and holistic approaches to recovery from adverse experiences, and sharing her findings with mental health professionals, law-enforcement, and the community at large.
