Kiley will share a story of a years-long messy and painful journey that included a quarter-life crisis, overcoming her fears to be who she truly is and do what she wanted, and eventually finding self-love and self-acceptance and ultimate confidence—and how this led her to a career in the arts, advocacy and activism. She will show how everyone can leverage their unique skill set of intersectional identity to build a career or become invaluable and irreplaceable in their careers and communities.
