Living Library 2018: Candice Kirkbride
CBC Sudbury featuring survivors in Living Library event
Candice Kirkbride has no memory of the night that changed her life forever. When she was 15 years old, she went to a party.
On the walk back home, she was hit by an impaired driver. Her friend who was with her at the time, A.J., died. Candice survived, but woke up two weeks later with a major brain injury.
But Candice eventually learned to overcome her challenges, accept her new life and is now openly sharing her story. She's written a book and is an active member of Toastmasters.
"There was some anger at the beginning, but I've learned how to laugh at myself. And the silly little things that are out of my control, I have learned to just laugh at because it's better to laugh than to sit and mope and cry about it. - Candice Kirkbride
