Kristina initially met this week’s guest – Kate Morell – a few years ago through a competition we ran at kikki.K, where we asked people to share their childhood dreams with us. Kate’s childhood dream was to be someone other children could look up to and to inspire other children with disabilities just like her to live their life to the fullest.
Inspired by this, Kristina offered Kate a mentorship and they have been friends ever since, helping each other dream and chase dreams as well as inspire others.
Hearing impaired since the age of two, Kate learned she was also going to be vision impaired as well from the age of 15. She had been diagnosed with Usher Syndrome and was told she would gradually lose her sight and be totally blind by the time she was 40. Kate has now passed 40, can still see and is a total inspiration to us all!
