The first time I saw Kit was at the gym sometime around 2002. She was 5 foot 8 inches tall (1.7 meters) and very very skinny. The women of the gym would talk in concern as soon as she left the room, but none of us knew what to say to this skinny girl.
I had the great chance to sit down with Kit and talk about that time in her life. I was left with an overwhelming sense that we are all carrying burdens – we are all capable of reaching out to lighten another’s burden too. If only to offer a smile.
I hope the editing job I’ve done conveys the desperation of that time in her life, and the strength that has come from overcoming that. She’s a remarkable woman.
