Hi! My name is Kensie Benoit.
When I was 14, I killed the idea that anyone was going to put a limit on my dreams.
When I was 15, I proved that the rumor was true -- that I was a good girl, crazy about Elvis.
When I was 17, I was up to the challenge of being the first person in my family to ever move away for college.
When I was 18, I showed the world that I didn't mind sharing my birthday week with Kooper Benoit :D.
When I was 21, I showed my boss that kids act out when they are bored and made it my mission to always have fun with them.
When I was 24, I started blogging about court reporting, positive affirmations, and healthy living.
When I was 25, I killed the idea that divorce HAS TO break you. It actually has the ability to make you even stronger.
When I was 26, I showed the world that if you survived heartbreak, you can survive anything. We must not let our circumstances define us.
And today, at 27, I continue to help people around the world kill the clichés of how their lives should be —all the stuff they “should” be doing, you know, like having everything figured out; society's expectations for marriage, children, body image, and success.
You must live your life for you, not your parents, not a relationship, not your friends. It is the only way you will ever truly be happy.
