Natty is an amazing and inspiring speaker that captivates her audience with vulnerability and authenticity. She ignites a fire in the souls of everyone she comes in contact with! I admire her dedication to truly connecting with other humans. We will definitely be inviting her back to speak, advise, connect, engage, develop, and grow our staff into leaders of tomorrow!
“Natasha had so many great moments, but the best one was on Thursday when it was perhaps her hardest day emotionally, but it showed that students unconditionally trust her and because of that are able to share very intimate and sometimes traumatic parts of their lives.”
“Beautiful. Empowering, Breath Taking, Emotional, Raw and Genuine”
