Natalie has developed an innovative platform built upon the firm belief that driven young people have the capacity to be change agents for their global community. She has spoken to more than 450 different audiences and over 60,000 people worldwide.    Natalie speaks on the power of individuals using their voice and talents to to create lasting change. 

Natalie is a Social Justice Activist, TED Speaker, and Advocate for Youth. Natalie spoke about “anonymous extraordinaries.” The people who work tirelessly for change and impact, not recognition. She spoke about times of dryness, when there’s no major events or campaigns happening, how we are still activists, creatives, and artists. In the trenches and in the valleys, here is where we gain the tools and insight we need to climb the mountains when they come. We are valuable because we are human beings, everything else is a bonus. Natalie reminded us not to get caught up in titles, recognitions or awards. Our paths may change throughout our lives but at our core are the same.
