The road to the top is often not easy, and no one knows this more than Emmy Award winning news correspondent Hattie Kauffman. Kauffman was the first Native American to file a report on network news in 1989. Before the glamor and notoriety of being on TV Kauffman endured a dark childhood, and a struggle to not become a victim of her circumstances.

When her husband left her, Kauffman was brought back to that feeling she had as a child of being scared. This was the catalyst for her to relive her past, a story; she had ‘been hiding for years’. Through it she found god and ensued a path of self-discovery as she wrote her memoir and shares with the world her story of survival.

The memoir called “Falling Into Place: A Memoir Of Overcoming” details her life from the Nez Perce Reservation, to sitting across some of the world’s biggest influencers. Kauffman as a storyteller was able to ask Olympians, Politicians and Oscar Winners the questions to tell their story.

Now is the time for her story to be told as she sat down with IBTimesTV and revealed that she was in fact nervous to be on the other side of the interview.
