Caitlin D. Ovide
Caitlin was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. At 11-years-old, she was displaced by Hurricane Katrina, a year later she made a home in Louisville, Kentucky with her mother.
Throughout her journey, some of the most pivotal events she experienced were overcoming domestic violence and sexual assault. Caitlin attributes who she is today, and her pursuit to empower young people to these moments and their outcomes. During tumultuous times, she found refuge in books, art, her support system and self-reflection all of which fostered emotional sturdiness.
Caitlin earned a full-tuition scholarship to college, and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics. She has always loved to serve and work with others to create space for empowerment and upliftment, and held several leadership positions during her time in pursuing her undergraduate degree. She also took courses in the Czech Republic and Prague, and taught elementary school students in Botswana, Africa.
She is now a candidate for her Masters of Economics focusing on policy. The aforementioned circumstances, and the hands of God led her to advocacy; particularly to create a platform that guides others through educational and professional development, self-empowerment and wellness.
