I had the pleasure of hearing Kelsey speak during her Bold Talks session at INBOUND15. I was blown away by her story, her energy, and her ability to connect with the audience.
I think Kelsey embodies the best that each of us could be: determined, hopeful, positive in the face of physical challenges, and truly desirous of making a difference in the world. These are her strengths, both on and off the platform. When people hear her story and see what she has overcome, they feel like saying, ’Well, I’m done complaining.’ She is charming and unafraid. Her self-deprecating humor makes us comfortable with her, and her magnetism makes us love her.
Kelsey connected with our students in a way that was not possible with other speakers. Her story and message resonated with them, as they reflected on their own struggles and drew courage from understanding that they are not alone. Kelsey engaged our students and opened a dialogue that will help us grow as a community. She has inspired our campus in a truly powerful way.
