“Kimberly Corban's story of a victim of a horrific act to a strong and empowered survivor should be heard by every young woman.”

Amanda OwensFounder of Future Female Leaders

“"Kimberly is a powerful public speaker who captivates her audience from the moment she walks on stage. She reaches people in a genuine way and I have witnessed firsthand the emotional connections she is able to build through her storytelling."”

Danielle Butcher

“The atrocity that was committed against Kimberly Corban was something colossal. Yet Corban's bravery in turning the worst day of her life into a courageous fight against the crippling feelings of helplessness, and fear that would otherwise haunt her makes her a colossus much greater than her tragedy.

Everyone, not just victims of sexual assault or rape, should hear Corban's message. ”

Brandon MorseJournalist &Commentator

“"Kimberly is a superb speaker with sharp wit. Her command of topics is excellent. She's a professional who will not only deliver on tasks you ask of her, she's also proactive and desires to stay involved beyond events. Very few people are as invested in their work as she is."”

Gabriella HoffmanMedia Strategist & Consultant

“Being a victim is never a choice, but becoming a survivor can be.”
