Kelly is now one of the Top 10 Most Powerful and Influential Speakers, Fierce Woman of the Year, an International Best-Selling Author, recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and a YWCA Woman of Distinction. 

Kelly’s Story

At the age of 2, Kelly Falardeau was in a tragic accident that severely burned 75% of her body. Her life was forever changed in that moment as she endured numerous surgeries. Due to the visibility of her scars, it led to being an easy target for bullying and feeling isolated because others were uncomfortable in her presence. This led to feeling unwanted, ashamed and unloved.

Aside from the challenges of adolescence and discovering true self love, her story has blossomed into one of true INSPIRATION. Kelly has become a successful speaker and best selling author. Kelly found a way to go from near-death to success; from the ugly scar-faced girl to the Top 10 Most Powerful and Influential Speakers, Fierce Woman of the Year, Best-Selling Author (4 times), recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and YWCA Woman of Distinction 2013.

You have to ask yourself how? How did a burn survivor who constantly struggled with rejection, staring and teasing burst through all the negativity in her life to succeed? You have to hear her speak, read her books or watch her documentary to learn her story. What your audience will take away: Empowerment, Renewed Hope ,Confidence, Self-Awareness, Motivation, Self-Worth, & Self-Love

You can watch a 1.5 min video of Kelly's story and the still beautiful documentary at www.KellyFalardeau.com
