Ky was asked to be a presenter at the 7th Annual Action Icon Awards. This event honors action women in all industries for the standards they achieve in their professions. It was a great honor to be chosen to present at this occasion and Ky was excited to attend.
Woolworth’s in Australia asked Ky to be a part of their national ad campaign airing in November. It’s part of a “I got my start at Woolworth’s” push talking about how a part-time job at a supermarket is great for a kid. A little known fact about Ky, is that she was in fact a check out chick when she was at school, so she felt honored to help with the campaign. What was the best part of the shoot for Ky? She says, “The cool thing was that I got to bring my dad Peter along as well. We did a photo shoot and an interview as part of the shoot. It was my Dad’s first time on set and it was so wonderful to share that with him!”.
Ky and her Naked and Afraid co-star, Billy Berger were asked to appear on The Queen Latifah Show to help bring in Season Two of Naked and Afraid. Ky had a great time on the show, saying “The Queen was a blast! So lovely and really interested in survival and the show. She was horrified to learn that we didn’t get a prize for finishing the 21 days and so got us a t-shirt for a prize!”.
Due to differences in global marketplaces, Ky’s book has a different name in North America; Superwoman’s Survival Guide. The book launch was held at Diesel Bookstore in Brentwood, where Ky gave an author talk followed by a book signing. The evening was hosted by Jaimie Alexander and was a resounding success. Following the book launch, an exclusive after party was held at Gallery 1988 and attended by over 100 guests, celebrities and members of the press.
Penguin Australia launched Ky’s book Girl’s Own Survival Guide in Australia today. Ky is about to begin a three week book tour of Australia with launch parties in Sydney, Adelaide and Torquay and a massive amount of news and radio interviews including Channel 10’s The Project and Channel 7’s The Daily Edition. Ky says “It’s an amazing feeling to have my first book published by such a great company!”
