“Here’s why I would want Natasha to present at the school for my own children: she makes serious profound points in a fun way; her mixed-race childhood gives her a perspective all students need to hear on hope, resilience and perseverance in the face of racism and bullying, she has amazing stories and tells them in an amazing way; and she inspires students to find and tell their own stories and dreams. And she does all of this in way that can reach a wide-range of grades in a large assembly.”
