Kimberly Holmes was born in Detroit, Michigan. When she was nine years old, she moved with her parents to San Diego, California. At fifteen, she and her siblings were placed in the state’s foster-care system.

At twenty-eight—after the birth of her son—she was diagnosed with clinical depression; three years later, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Today Kimberly is first and foremost an African American mental-health advocate, as well as a part-time psychology student, mental-health outreach speaker, companion, and mother to a son who also struggles with mental illness. Kimberly, an inspiring writer, hopes to someday become a motivational speaker.
