Kate’s TED Talk – Chasing Dreams & Beginning Again

Kate was honoured to be the opening speaker at TEDx  in Oshawa on May 8th, 2014.

“I have always said that one day, I will find something that speaks to both of my passions … acting and teaching. Well, I found it. My ‘first’ TED Talk today was one of the most profound experiences and I am moved beyond words. I am humbled by the 200+ generous people in the room, by those who pulled me aside to thank me and tell me their stories, by the response on social media from those who watched it over live video feed. I’ m humbled that my story could have such an impact. One woman pulled me aside and said, “I feel like you wrote that just for me.” I also overheard people talking about their “fork in the road” moments and how my talk gave them courage to explore the road less travelled.  But you know, it was me who was the lucky one. It’s experiences like these that shape me to be the woman I am today and I owe my thanks to them… not the other way around. Our impact on each other is indescribable. Really. “
