Kathleen Meara is from Fort Scott, which is just east of Uniontown, where this project started. She is a sophomore in college and for over 14 months she played the role of Irena Sendler, all over the United States.

When she first heard of this project she was just excited about the opportunities that it offered. She says, “now that I have gotten to know Megan, Elizabeth, and the others, I realize that I’m just lucky to be a part of the project. Irena Sendler is someone to be admired. She put a whole new perspective on my life. Her story needs to be told throughout the world, and that’s why I’m honored to be a part of trying to make that happen.”

Kathleen is 24 years old and works in Kansas City.
