Kate dropped school at the age of 15 when she lost interest in studies despite being sharp and intelligent. She used to live with her grandma and grandad. During her childhood, she was not given the things that she wanted because of their economic level, and so Kate used to work part-time. After dropping school, she began to work full-time.
