Kelly Clark graduated from Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada with a degree in psychology, followed by a post-graduate certificate in education in London, England. For the next two years she supply-taught in over 100 different schools across London and met thousands of amazing kids.
She returned to Canada with her partner, Alex, and became a full-time teacher. Passionate about prevention, Kelly developed the Who Is NOBODY? program on evenings and weekends before successfully piloting it while continuing to teach and tutor.
Who Is NOBODY? is a classroom-based kit that supports students in figuring out their strengths and using them to help others. Through this program, students build their identities around their interests and passions.
The first year Who Is NOBODY? was available to schools, Kelly presented the program to over 70 Rotary Clubs across Ontario. With their tremendous support, Who Is NOBODY? kits were donated to neighbouring schools which helped the concept reach more teachers. To date, over 150 school boards across Canada, as well as in the United States, England, Australia, Spain and Saudi Arabia have implemented the program, and more than 50,000 students have participated. Their stories can be read at www.whoisnobody.com.
Now, as the director of Who Is NOBODY? Kelly is thrilled to have her manuscript, It took me 10 years to lose 10 pounds on its way to becoming published and placed in the hands of readers ready for change.
This book is Kelly’s own Who Is NOBODY? project. Her aim is to lead by example and connect with allies who have a similar outlook to reaching goals. Together they can combat the epidemic recognized as preoccupation with weight. Kelly is committed to offering people struggling with weight loss the same simple solution that turned her life around.
When the book is complete, Kelly looks forward to having more time for her other interests, namely creative projects, sports and the people, animals and places she loves.
