About me

Kim Larochelle - Kosciuszko

Me in Kosciuszko National Park, April 2011

My name is Kim Larochelle. I was born in beautiful Quebec City (Canada) in the early eighties as part of a loving and caring family. I am the youngest of three girls – much to the delight of my sisters who loved using me as their ‘doll’!

Moving on a ‘few’ years… I came to Australia on my own in 2003 to undertake postgraduate studies in international communication. I have loved this country – such a beautiful land of contrasts – from day one. I’ve seen lots of it.

In April 2011, I decided to go solo camping in Kosciuszko National Park for a week. It was a turning point in my life. I used the trip as a time to reflect on my life – where I had been, what I wanted to accomplish, etc. I came back to civilisation totally ‘zen’ (yes, running 21km in ‘altitude’ may have got to my head a little…).

Ever since this trip, I’ve taken time to think about my personal and professional development and about the footprint I want to leave in this world.

Why Lead Challenge Inspire?

My personal mission in life can be summarised by: to be the best I can be and lead, challenge and inspire. Therefore, my goal with this blog is to share with you the experiences, learnings and challenges I face during this adventure that is life. I hope to come across awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping and maybe life-changing experiences that will help me lead, challenge and inspire my own life, and, who knows, perhaps your life too (forgive me the touch of arrogance here!)…
