Grace Kennedy2018-2020 Ambassador

Sixteen-year-old Grace Kennedy is the new Friends of We Care female Ambassador. She joins the team after a year as an Easter Seals Ontario Provincial Ambassador. Grace was born with Spina Bifida and has limited feeling in her legs. She wears braces to help her walk and uses a wheelchair for longer distances.

The grade 10 honours student lives in Caledon with her parents Dean and Lesley, siblings Travis, Leah and Cali, and their pet dog Daisy. Grace has a passion for arts, science and drama. She especially loves to read, draw, listen to music, swim, and play board games with her family. Grace already has a connection with the Foodservice industry having worked as a Junior Prep Chef at the prestigious Devil’s Pulpit Golf Club.

Grace is excited about her new role as a We Care Ambassador and has a simple message for everyone she meets. “Look beyond my braces,” she says. “Look beyond the way I walk and see me, meet me, speak to me, look me in the eyes and let’s talk. And I will do the same with you”.
