Kimberly’s childhood was marked by difficulties. She had family members involved with gangs and drugs, she witnessed domestic violence, and she lost her younger sister and grandmother in a tragic car accident when she was thirteen. Using her own pain and experience she hopes to make our world a better place through her involvement with a variety of programs, organizations, and clubs. As a 17 year-old senior at Napa High, she founded a support group for at-risk girls called Girls United. She hopes to attend Lewis & Clark College in Portland and eventually work in law enforcement as a lawyer.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
