On December 21, 2020, Kairi effectively decided to end her life. She took a presumably loaded gun, put it to her mouth, and pulled the trigger. For reasons still unknown, that gun never fired. After that fateful moment, she decided to embark on a journey of the mind in hopes of finding what we all strive for: healing.
Knowing the pain firsthand and how bad the "suck" feels when it sucks, she decided to begin a career streaming on Twitch. While she was figuring out the world of streaming, she realized that the more she started to be her true self with no act to put on, the more people seemed to flock to the channel and connect with her. Over the course of a year, Kairi dove deep into the world of mental health on a journey to finally learn who she was and to make sense of her mind. Candidly and openly—good or bad—she explored her mind to find healing. Only to prove that if she could do it, so could anyone.
Never in a million years did she expect to be the founder, President, and Executive Director of anything, especially a nonprofit organization that is saving and changing lives. She openly admits there are so many things she doesn't know and so many times that she didn't know what she was doing in life, but she knows one thing for sure: that when it comes to mental health and her brothers and sisters in arms, she will give it her all and try her best to continue helping those in need.
