WHAT STARTED IT ALL
Why blog in the first place?
To Be Kat is my free space to speak on my personal interests, passions, plans, and life. We all have stories to share with the world, that are special to each one of us.
To Be Kat is about my individual story and my desire to be transparent and real with others. Social media is filled with negative and damaging influences, but I want to change that. I want to be straight with people, and this is my platform to spread honesty and authenticity about what makes me who I am (Kat).
My hope is that through this blog you can learn more about me and maybe even find a bit of yourself in me, as well. I think we all as humans are interconnected in diverse and immeasurable ways. So follow and connect with me! :)
