Dr. KH Kim is the author of “The Creativity Challenge: How We Can Recapture American Innovation,” which was published this September. She is a professor of Innovation & Creativity at the College of William & Mary. She has dedicated her career to the research of creativity and innovators. She aims to help individuals –– especially those who feel different, misfit, or are viewed as troublemakers –– use the power of creativity to achieve their dreams. Her study –– The Creativity Crisis –– revealed American creativity has decreased since 1990, especially among young children, and it was the subject of a 2010 Newsweek cover story. The study opened national and international dialogues about the importance of creativity in education and all areas of life.
