Kade is a native New Yorker. Raised in the Bronx by West African parents, the explorer inside her was always searching for more. Her first experience outdoors was in high school through a Summer Enrichment program at Dartmouth College (SEAD). That first hiking and camping trip rekindled the flame and began her journey. Her passion for working with kids turned this dancer into a climber. This new additional love took Kade to Yosemite where she learned how to trad climb and hike through the beautiful national park. Kade continues develop her knowledge of the outdoors so she can continue to educate and share her love with other minorities, young and old, so they too can see that the outdoors is for all.
