Why the 100 Alice Stories Project?
Kellie is a coach, mentor and a creative thinker and leader with a real passion for working with women to achieve both personal and professional success. Having experienced Domestic Violence as a child, she has been seeking an opportunity to make a difference in this area. The 100 Alice Stories Project is designed to let women tell their story of survival and escape to benefit women still trapped in a Domestic Violence situation. In order to disguise the identities of the story tellers (for safety and security), they are all named Alice. The 100 Alice Stories Team is seeking more stories from women who as a child or adult experienced and survived their situation.
