After watching Ky on Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid, she quickly became an inspiration because of her calm, level-headed and rational demeanor. The SuperWoman's Survivial Guide is an extension of her first hand knowledge with captivating Hollywood stories, gently guiding even the most metropolitan women, like me!
