I recently had the opportunity to host Kendra at The Power of Unstoppable Women Saskatoon. Kendra was not only an excellent storyteller, she connected with the audience in countless ways. Her story of survival changed the lives of many women that day. For myself, being there to witness how much she inspired our audience was something truly remarkable.
