Leonia Library & Rotary Speaker Series: Kelly Fallardeau “Still Beautiful”September 26, 2019 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Kelly Fallardeau is a burn survivor who, at age 2, was burned on 75% of her body and constantly struggled with her self-worth and confidence. She found a way to go from near-death to success; from being called an "ugly scar-faced girl" to being named a Top 10 Powerful and Influential Speaker, Fierce Woman of the Year, and a YWCA Woman of Distinction. She is a TED Talk presenter, an international best-selling author (5x), and the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. She has also traveled to Africa to help burn survivors recover from their tragic injuries, and in April the documentary about her life, called "Still Beautiful", launched on national TV. Kelly and her kids founded "Blankets for Burn Kids" and they share their story with civic groups around the world about how they're helping children to feel empowered instead of bullied.
Dedicated to making a difference, Kelly has used her challenges as a burn survivor as a platform to redefine beauty. An international speaker, Kelly prompts youth and adults to celebrate their differences and embrace their uniqueness.
