Natalie received $16K after participating in One Spark, a crowd funding festival where creators showcase their projects. She gained the most votes in the education section for her book “Adventures of Moxie Girl. ”
With “Adventures of Moxie Girl,” her goal is to inspire high self-esteem in girls of color by depicting what society sees as their flaws, like kinky hair, as a superpower.
She draws her motivation from her own struggles with taking pride in her hair texture and skin tone. I mean, how much better can she get?
After identifying a need in her community, she used her personal experiences to help uplift and inspire. That’s what I call an ethical business model and a powerful girl with big dreams.
Since winning the contest, Natalie has embarked on promotional work for her book, including interviewing with her local radio station.
